Robert Franklin Moseley was born in Sampson County, near Clinton, North Carolina on February 10, 1891 to Franklin Faison and Rowena Royall Moseley. After attending the public schools in Clinton, he went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and completed an A. B. degree there in 1919, after an interruption for service in the United States Army in World War I. Mr. Moseley also attended the university law school and was later licensed to practice in 1922. Before Mr. Moseley began his career as an attorney, he taught in the public schools of the state, including Rocky Mount High School, where he later became principal (1919-20). He was later named city superintendent of schools in Tarboro (1921-22).

Mr. Moseley relocated to Greensboro in 1922 where he later served as city attorney (1928-29). He married Minnie Frank Hays on September 19, 1929. They had one child, Robert F, Moseley, Jr., who was born on August 4, 1936. In 1930, Mr. Moseley served as chairman of the Guilford county board of elections. He also served as a member of the Greensboro school board from 1929 through 1941. In addition, Mr. Moseley represented Guilford County in the state house of representatives for the 1943, 1945 and 1947 sessions.

While in the State House, Mr. Moseley introduced legislation to create the General Statutes Commission in 1945. He served as chairman of the Commission from 1945 to 1961. His distinguished service was recognized when the North Carolina Bar Association awarded him the Judge John J. Parker Award in 1962. In the same year, the University of North Carolina awarded him an honorary LL.D degree. Mr. Moseley died on December 23, 1972.

Mr. Moseley’s wife, Minnie Frank (Fran) Hays, the other principal subject of this collection, was born in Batesville, Arkansas to the Reverend William Benjamin and Ellen William Reinhardt Hays. She had three brothers, Reuben, William, and Lee. Lee Hays was a short story and song-writer who sang with the Weavers, a 1950s band, with singer and social activist Pete Seeger. Mrs. Moseley was a writer of short stories, poetry, and songs. She won local awards for her work. Mrs. Moseley died on December 3, 1973.

Biographical Sources: There are two main biographical sources compiled by Robert Moseley himself that provide a rough sketch of his life—the personal reference sheet he supplied to the Greensboro Daily News in 1969 and the information sheet he prepared for his class reunion at UNC Chapel Hill in 1969 (II: 1:3). The memorial to Mr. Moseley, presented to the Greensboro Bar Association in 1973, also provides useful information (II: 1:2). Researchers will find, however, conflicting dates in some of the newspaper articles printed about Mr. Moseley (II: 1:1). For the purpose of compiling his biographical note, his personal biographical submissions were used.

Much less is known about Minnie Frank Moseley. Her biographical note was primarily compiled using an undated typewritten letter she planned to submit to a newspaper (I: 5:1).


Types of material in this collection primarily include artwork, correspondence, literary documents, photographs, awards and certificates and printed material.

The bulk of materials in the Minnie Frank Hays Moseley group (I) are her literary works. Much of her poetry and short story writing is fiction and covers a wide variety of topics (8). Mrs. Moseley did win local prizes for her work (2), but her writing was declined for publication in numerous magazines (8:19-22). Mrs. Moseley did, however, write the lyrics to the song “Seven Daffodils” with her brother, Lee Hays. The song was released by the 1950s band The Weavers—a group that included Lee Hays and song-writer and social activist Pete Seeger (11:2). Among Mrs. Moseley’s correspondence is a letter signed by Pete Seeger (4:21).

The primary materials included in the Robert Moseley’s group (II) are correspondence. Letters in this series include many topics, from personal to professional. The great majority of correspondence consists of congratulatory letters (2:56, 83, 149, 143) sent to Mr. Moseley in 1962 after he was awarded an honorary doctorate from UNC-Chapel Hill and the Judge John J. Parker award for his service on the General Statutes Commission. A highlight of this correspondence is letters regarding Mr. Moseley’s work during his terms as a legislator in the General Assembly to assist African-Americans and to improve public education (2:53, 87, 92, 126, 129).

Numerous references to Mr. Moseley’s public and political involvement are included in this collection (10). Certificates and awards, both educational and professional (10:2, 3), newspaper clippings (10:6-13), citations and resolutions (10:5), and political items (10:1, 22), all illustrate Mr. Moseley’s community involvement in a wide variety of areas.

The Moseley Family group (III) primarily contains genealogical materials. Family photos (9), a family Bible (1:1), and other old family documents, which include the selling of slaves (5:2), are included in the Moseley Family Group.

The majority of this correspondence includes attachments with family histories to assist Mr. Moseley in his efforts.

Mr. Moseley also assisted others in tracing his family lineage. In 1942, J. G. de Roulhac Hamilton, founder of the Southern Historical Collection at UNC-Chapel Hill, wrote Mr. Moseley for information on Robert A. Moseley, a delegate to the Secession Convention of 1861 (4:3).

Two older letters can be found in 4:7; 8. The first is a letter signed by “Your mother,” which may have been written by Rowena Royall (Mr. Moseley’s mother) or his grandmother, Mary A. Moseley (4:7). The second letter was written by Robert A. Moseley (Mr. Moseley’s grandfather) in 1865 to encourage his children to serve God faithfully (4:8).

5. Family — Documents. 3 folders (15 items). 1848-65.

These family documents are divided into three groups: land receipts, slave receipts, and tax receipts. All of the documents originated from Baldwin County, Alabama, and a member of the Vaughn family signed all but one. The land receipts verify that Martha A. and B. F. Vaughn received land, in 1864 and 1865, from the executor of the Last Will and Testament of W. C. Vaughn (5:1).

The slave receipts are the most numerous. They verify the inheritance of slaves by members of the Vaughn family between the years 1858 and 1864. The great majority of slaves mentioned in these documents are children. Their valuation is included in the receipts (5:2).

There is only one tax receipt in 5:3. It confirms that the Treasurer’s Office in Montgomery, Alabama, received $27.78 from John W. Bates of Baldwin County in 1848.

6. Family — Genealogy. 5 folders (ca. 50 items). Nd.

All of these papers contain genealogical information on the Moseley and Royall families. Information on the immigration of the Moseley’s from England and Holland is located in 6:1 as well as a paper taken from the Southern Historical Collection on Edward Moseley, a colonial patriot and North Carolina statesman (?-1749). A brief biography of Robert A. Moseley (Mr. Moseley’s grandfather) is also included in this series (6:3). Information on the relatives of Mr. Moseley’s mother (Rowena Royall) is located throughout (6:4; 5).

7. Family — Miscellaneous. 2 folders (21 items). Nd.

The miscellaneous items include a paper on the naming of Guilford County (7:1) and notes torn from a notebook (7:2).

8. Family — Moseley, William Dunn. 1 folder (6 items). Nd.

William Dunn Moseley (1795-1863), Mr. Moseley’s great-great uncle, was a North Carolinian who was elected as the first Governor of Florida in 1845. Governor Moseley’s inaugural address, a biographical sketch, and an article that includes Moseley’s picture, are included in this series.

9. Family – Photos. 6 folders (ca. 85 items). ca. 1895-1970.

This series consists of three primary groups: photos of the Moseley extended family, pictures of Mr. Moseley’s immediate family, and photos of Mr. Moseley’s son, Robert Moseley Jr. These photographs and negatives include both formal and candid shots.

The photos of Mr. Moseley’s extended family include pictures of his grandparents (Robert A. and Mary Moseley), his uncle Frank Moseley, and much earlier portraits of unidentified relatives (9:1). One of the highlights of this group is a photo of Robert A. Moseley and his bird dogs taken on a store porch in Bessemer, Alabama in 1895. Robert Moseley was photographed with a store clerk and the driver of the store delivery wagon (9:1).

Among the pictures of Mr. Moseley’s immediate family, many involve his courtship and/or early years of marriage to Minnie Frank Hays Moseley. Photos capturing 1920s fashion and automobiles are included in these courtship pictures (9:2). Mr. Moseley’s golf attire is featured in another photo (9:2). There are also photos of the Moseley family home included in 9:2.

The subject of the majority of these family photos is Robert Moseley, Jr. These photos document the childhood of Robert Moseley, Jr., from outdoor baths as a baby to playing with animals and enjoying picnics as a young boy (9:3). The family maid often accompanied Robert Moseley, Jr. As a result, she is included in many of these photos. Of special interest are photos of Robert in “Myrtle Beach Jail” and watching the circus pass down the street (9:3).

Photos of Robert Moseley, Jr.’s birthday celebrations are in 9:4. Many of his toys are featured in these pictures as well: bikes, wagons, guns, stuffed animals, strollers, and wheelbarrows (9:6). His portraits, spanning from junior high school (1950) to adulthood, are grouped in 9:5.
