Rebecca Black Dupont (1869-1945) was Savannah, Georgia's first woman stenographer. She began her career with the Plant System (railroads) in Savannah October 1, 1895, and retired in 1935 as a veteran clerk of the Savannah offices of the Atlantic Coast Line Railway. She was an active leader in many women's organizations in Savannah.
This collection consists of two letters from the Battle of Germantown Commemorative Association of Mt. Airy, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Rebecca Black Dupont, both from 1941. The first letter requests information on the disinterment and reburial of General Nathanael Greene; the second letter thanks Dupont for the information on General Greene and contains a copy of the Association's "Notes on Major-General Nathanael Greene." Also included in the collection are rough notes made by Dupont regarding an apparent celebration, as she recommends Mayor Thomas Gamble as a speaker.
Material was acquired from creator's brother-in-law.
