This collection represents the fruits of many years of collecting on the part of A. Earl Weatherly, a noted Confederate States of America philatelic expert. Contained herein is material that informs various aspects of Southern history, particularly those associated with Piedmont North Carolina. Researchers interested in social and cultural history will find many items that reveal a sampling of Southerners’ worldviews, financial dealings, and experiences during different periods of the 19th century. Also included are a number of items from the 20th century, most notably those chronicling Weatherly’s career as a philatelist and correspondence relating to Ethel Stephens Arnett’s publication of Greensboro, North Carolina: The County Seat of Guilford. Aside from the material pertaining to Weatherly’s career as a philatelist, few items in the collection relate to his life or family.

Arrangement: This collection is arranged into nine series, and within each series the folders are arranged alphabetically. The series are: Correspondence, ca. 1830s-1960s; Reminiscences, ca. 1860s; Printed Material, ca. 1860s-1960s; Financial/Legal Documents, ca. 1820s-1880s; Photographs, ca. 1880s-1950s; Literary Productions, ca. 1950s; Scrapbooks, n.d; Newspapers; Miscellaneous, ca. 1850s-1900s.

Provenance: The bulk of this collection appears to have been donated by A. Earl Weatherly in 1975. Many items listed in the inventory of accession number 1975.92.1-3 are contained in this collection.

Processing:  It is not known who organized this collection nor who wrote the series descriptions. Francis D. Pitts III wrote the introduction and notes in March 1997.


Andrew Earl Weatherly (1895-1981) was born in Rockingham County as the son of Mary Elizabeth Payne (1860-1929) and Andrew Weatherly Jr. (1851-1910), and he grew up in Greensboro. After serving in the Navy during World War I, he worked as a druggist and by 1924 established Stratford-Weatherly Drugstore with his friend, Parke Stratford. Weatherly was president of the drugstore until it ceased operations in the mid-1930s. He then worked for Gem Dandy in Madison, North Carolina, where he was vice-president when he retired. He married Frances Rankin in 1927.

Internationally known as a collector of and authority on Confederate States of America stamps and postal history, Weatherly won numerous awards for his stamp exhibitions in national and international philatelic competitions. He was a former president and chairman of the board of trustees of the Greensboro Historical Museum (approximately 1956-1969), and he made a number of donations to museum collections during a long association with the institution.[1] As a collector, Weatherly had a special interest in material relating to Guilford County and adjacent regions. He was the author of The First Hundred Years of Historic Guilford, 1771-1871, a postal history of the county as revealed through documents and graphics he collected. In addition, he collected numerous other items germane to the history of the South.

Biographical Sources: The chief source of information on A. Earl Weatherly’s life is his book, The First Hundred Years of Historic Guilford, 1771-1871 (Greensboro, NC: Greensboro Printing Co., 1972), pp. 6-10. Additional information for this biographical note was obtained from his obituary (Greensboro Daily News, December 2, 1981) and a tribute published in the GHM Journal (March 1982), copies of which are filed in the folder at the beginning of the collection. The Greensboro city directories, the Guilford County Register of Deeds database, and were also consulted. A number of newspaper clippings in the vertical files of the archives provide information about Weatherly’s activities in Greensboro.


Types of materials in this collection include correspondence, financial and legal documents, literary productions, newspapers, photographs, postal covers, printed material, reminiscences, and scrapbooks.

The bulk of the material in the collection relates to the history of North Carolina during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Researchers interested in Greensboro, Guilford County, and people and subjects associated with that area will find the collection especially useful. Of particular note is the material relating to the Civil War (see series 1-7), the North Carolina Railroad (1:4; 3:9; 4:12-13,16), Ethel Stephens Arnett (1:1), and A. Earl Weatherly’s career as a philatelist (see series 1, 3, and 7 in particular). Also of interest are antebellum newspapers (filed separately) and carte de visites of Civil War personages. Other than the material on Weatherly’s career as a philatelist, few items relate to his life or the Weatherly family.
