George Washington's Mount Vernon Magazine is published three times a year to disseminate information on the events and current news at the Mount Vernon estate. This publication replaces the previous version, "Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow", or YTT, which was published for the same purpose and audience. Articles include information on recent and upcoming events, restoration projects, interesting museum and library accessions, book reviews, fundraising opportunities, etc.
This is a collection of large ledgers or books with the signatures and autographs of Mount Vernon visitors and special guests. The books date from 1850 to the present day and some registers overlap in date.
This small collection contains records concerning land gifts, purchases, and easements obtained by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association. Types of records include deeds, memorandums, signed agreements, land plats, maps, drawings, and correspondence. The material dates from 1858 to 2006, however there is some information on Washington family property that dates from the 1830s (the originals of these items were removed and replaced with photocopies in 2001).
This collection holds 34 volumes of notebooks kept by Elswyth Thane Beebe in preparation for two of her publications, "Mount Vernon is ours; the story of its preservation," 1966 and "Mount Vernon; the legacy" 1967. These notebooks contain the notes written by the author during her research on the history of Mount Vernon.
The majority of this collection is made up of research files compiled by Worth Bailey while researching at Mount Vernon and other historical sites. These files contain correspondence, news clippings, images, articles, and studies. Another substantial portion of the collection contains Bailey’s drawings, woodcuts, and several printing blocks.
