Scope and Content Note

(A01-161; A03-16)
This Record Sub-Group contains approximately 700 color and black and white postcards, 15 certificates and diplomas, fourteen St. Patrick's Day buttons and commencement materials collected by Abraham Lincoln Hyde, his second wife, Emma Fisher Hyde, and his son, E. Clarendon Hyde (1886-1976). A. L. Hyde collected postcards from places in which he lived, worked, and visited. As a result, there are postcards from more than twenty-five states and several international locations. He also had an interest in architecture so there are a significant number of postcards highlighting architectural features and sites.

Since he taught at the University of Missouri-Columbia, there are many postcards of the University, but there are also quite a few Missouri towns featured. In addition to the postcards of campus buildings such as Academic Hall, notable campus sites, e.g. gardens and bridges, are also pictured. Farmer's Week and other special events are also captured in this collection. St. Patrick's Day is well-represented in the collection of buttons and the metal three-leaf clover and pipe.

The diplomas and certificates are from all three family members and represent memberships in various organizations such as the Society of Civil Engineers and the DAR and indicate educational achievements at the University of Missouri and other educational institutions.

Biographical Note:

Abraham Lincoln Hyde was raised in New Haven, Connecticut and remained in that city to attend Yale University. He graduated from Yale in 1886 with a Ph.D. Until 1902, Hyde worked in various engineering establishments such as the Berlin Iron Bridge Company, the King Bridge Company, and the Frank C. Osborn Company. He also served as the Official Photographer of the American Bridge Company. He was an Instructor in Civil Engineering at Lehigh University from 1902-1903. During 1903, he transferred to the University of Missouri as an Assistant Professor of Bridge Engineering. He continued with the University of Missouri for many years and was permanently appointed Emeritus Professor of Bridge Engineering in 1935. He died in Columbia in 1949.

His son, E. Clarendon Hyde, was born in University Hospital in 1915 and attended University High School. He received his Bachelor's degree in German with a minor in Classical Languages from the University of Missouri-Columbia (1937). Clarendon Hyde continued his education at Union Theological Seminary (1940) and the University of Minnesota (1955 MLIS). He married Mary Ruth Hyde, a native of Mountain Grove, in 1943. For thirty years, beginning in 1956, Clarendon Hyde worked as a Librarian at the University of Missouri-Columbia.
