After Dr. Bartholomew's death, his papers were presented to Augustana College by his daughter, Netta (Mrs. K. T. Anderson). Some papers appear to have been donated later, or perhaps moved from Netta Bartholomew Anderson's papers. Earlier finding aids can be found with accession materials.



Known to the past students of Augustana as Augustana's "Grand Old Man," Edward Fry Bartholomew was born in Sunbury, Pennsylvania, 24 March 1846. His parents were of English and German heritage. The first school he attended was Freeburg Academy, Freeburg, Pennsylvania (1863). During his years at the Academy he taught district school in several places, thus earning money toward his education. At the age of nineteen (1865) he entered the Missionary Institute at Selinsgrove. This school later became Susquehanna University. In the fall of 1868, he transferred to Pennsylvania College (later known as Gettysburg College). Bartholomew received his B. A. degree from that college in 1871, graduating with high honors. He also earned his M. A. degree from Gettysburg College (1874).

Upon graduation, Bartholomew decided to go West and accepted a position as principal of an academy at Clark City, Missouri. After two years, he changed to another school at Kahoka, Missouri where he served as principal.

In 1874, Carthage College in Carthage, Illinois, offered him the chair of Natural and Physical Sciences. He stayed at Carthage College until 1888 serving as a professor, and then president of the college with a brief break between 1883 and 1884. During this departure from Carthage, Bartholomew traveled to Hawaii. In the fall of 1883, he took a position as Professor of English at Mount Morris College, in Mount Morris, Illinois, that he held until 1884, when he was asked to be president of Carthage College. In the spring of 1888, he resigned from Carthage and accepted the chair in the English Literature and Philosophy departments of Augustana College and Theological Seminary.

The position at Augustana College and Theological Seminary was to be his last and longest, extending over a period of forty-four years. In 1894 and 1895, Bartholomew took a leave of absence and traveled to Germany to engage in study at the University of Berlin. Upon his return to teaching in 1895, Augustana conferred upon him the Ph.D. degree. Bartholomew taught steadily until 1932 when he resigned his teaching position at Augustana. Though retired, he was recalled in the spring of 1935 to teach two hours a week. He was 89 years old.

In addition to his teaching responsibilities at Augustana, Bartholomew would also often offer chapel sermons or devotions on campus and was active in the community. He was widely known in the Quad Cities area as an eloquent speaker and lecturer. He authored several books, including, most notably, The Relation of Psychology to Music (1899), The Psychology of Prayer (1922), and Biblical Pedagogy (1927). He also served as pastor of five different congregations at various points in his life.

Throughout his career, Bartholomew kept in close contact with Carthage College where he would return to give lectures or attend events. Showing their high esteem of Bartholomew, Carthage College awarded him the following honorary degrees: a Doctor of Divinity degree (D. D.) in 1888, a Doctor of Humane Letters degree (LH. D.) in 1912, and a Doctor of Law degree (LL. D.) in 1930.

He celebrated his one hundredth birthday on March 24, 1946, and received callers though he was recovering from a stroke. He passed away a few months later, on June 10, 1946.



Dr. E. F. Bartholomew's papers are very broad in scope but consist mainly in teaching materials and various writings. The collection has been organized into sixteen series: Personal papers, Education, Mt. Morris College, Carthage College, Augustana College, Published works, Manuscripts, Addresses and sermons, Lectures and lecture notes, Kate L. Bartholomew, Scrapbooks, Books, Photographs, Postcards, and Artifacts.

The Personal papers series (1868-1946) is organized into seven subseries: Biographical information, Miscellaneous, Newspaper clippings, Diaries, Correspondence, Financial Records, and Travel. Biographical information includes a biographical sketch, genealogical information, and information about Bartholomew's funeral. The Miscellaneous subseries contains memorabilia and items not easily classed into other series and includes programs, pamphlets, and other items. The Newspaper clippings subseries includes copies of articles saved by Bartholomew on various topics. The bulk of this subseries consists of clippings that mention an event featuring E. F. Bartholomew. Articles written by Bartholomew can be found in the Published works series. The Diaries subseries contains diaries dating from 1868 to 1946 as well as daily planners and other personal notebooks. Correspondence consists of letters and notes received and written by Bartholomew. This subseries contains letters of both private and business matter. The subseries has been organized into general letters to Bartholomew arranged alphabetically by sender, family correspondence, and cards and notes regarding birthdays. This subseries contains two letter-copy books that were used for business purposes. These provide interesting insight into the work Bartholomew did at Carthage College and Augustana College. At the end of this subseries are telegrams, notes and letters Bartholomew received for his 100th birthday. Among the notable letters he received, was one from Harry Truman, president at the time of this landmark occasion. The Financial records subseries contains receipts, account books, and investment information. The Travel subseries contains travel guides from Europe and the United States. Among these papers are documents pertaining to travel expenses, souvenir prints, and correspondences to Bartholomew and his daughter, Netta, while abroad. Also included in this subseries is the Bartholomew trip to the Columbian Exposition, World Fair of 1893 in Chicago, Illinois.

The Education series (1834-1895) includes essays and notes written by Bartholomew while he attended Freeburg Academy, Missionary Institute, and Pennsylvania College. Also included are commencement programs, newsletters, and other ephemera from various institutions. Though it occurred many years later, the end of the Education series includes a sub-subseries called Year abroad. This includes notebooks from Bartholomew's time in Berlin, Germany, where he studied at the university from 1894 to 1895.

The Mt. Morris College series is very small, consisting of one grade book. It is the only physical evidence of his one-year stint teaching at this small college.

The Carthage College series includes commencement programs, a memorandum book, issues of the Carthage College Bulletin and issues of the Carthage College Alumnus. Dr. Bartholomew's association with Trinity Lutheran Church in Carthage, Illinois is represented in this series. See also the Addresses and sermons series for several volumes of sermons Bartholomew delivered at Trinity Lutheran Church.

The Augustana College series includes a listing on the items placed in the cornerstone of Denkmann Library, chapel talks and speeches made at college events, a scrapbook, and two letterpress books.

The Published works series contains primarily books, articles, and transcriptions of addresses that were published. Also in this series are the materials surrounding the publication of the Relation of psychology to music which consists of correspondence, royalty statements, as well as reviews and publicity of this work.

The Manuscripts series includes works that were not published or drafts of works that would later be published. There is a variety of works in this series which range from short works to book-length works.

The Addresses and sermons series includes a wide range of public addresses and sermons as well as outlines and notes. Among these papers are sermons given at Carthage College and Augustana College as well as addresses given at memorial services.

The papers in the Lectures and lecture notes have been arranged by subject matter and are organized into nine subseries: Literature, English, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, Music, Theology, Other topics, and Examination questions. Where possible, arrangement of the papers follows the order that E. F. Bartholomew provided by his method of numbering volumes of notes.

The Kate L. Bartholomew series includes items saved and/or created by E. F. Bartholomew's wife, Kate. The series has been arranged into the following eight subseries: Correspondence; Cards and programs; Diaries; Writings; Magazines; Books and pamphlets; Photographs; and Miscellaneous. Most interesting in this series are Kate Bartholomew's writings. One essay is an account of David Day and the Muhlenburg Mission in Monrovia. Bartholomew describes the circumstances of living in Africa, the difficult task it is to find and retain good missionaries, the missionary's attitude toward the African people, and the place of women in African society as compared to their American counterparts. This essay appears to have been delivered in the form of an address at a Missionary Society meeting.

The Scrapbooks series includes two scrapbooks of newspaper clippings. The first is a collection of articles about Augustana College. The second is a more personal collection of articles about topics presumably interesting to Bartholomew including articles about musicians and musical events; obituaries about notable people; articles about local events; and other miscellany.

The Books series contains books that belonged to Bartholomew. He was known for having a large library, but only a handful of books were included in his collection.

The Photographs series includes photographs of Bartholomew at various ages through his life. Also in this series are portraits and snapshots family members and some landmarks.

The Postcards series consists of over one hundred postcards. The majority of postcards were removed from a postcard album that was greatly deteriorated.

The Artifacts series contains two pairs of Bartholomew's eye-glasses, a bookplate stamp, and miscellaneous buttons and pins.



Where possible, the papers have been kept in what appears to be their original order. Specific arrangement is described in more detail in the scope and content section of this document.
