Biographical / Historical

Henry R. Heyburn was a prominent attorney and civic leader in Louisville, Kentucky. Among many activities, Heyburn served on the board at Community (Red Cross) Hospital from 1950 to 1974. He served in many capacities during this time as a member on the finance, constitution and bylaws, and endowment fund. He also served as chair. These records, held in University Archives, include correspondence, financial reports, articles and bylaws, and other pertinent information describing the operation of the hospital. Heyburn's long interest in the Falkland Islands and dependent territories in the Antarctic began with his passion for philately. His focus expanded as he traveled to the Falkland Islands, and researched the lives of early Falkland settlers. Heyburn became particularly interested in the career of William Lamond Allardyce (1861-1930) governor of the Falkland Islands from 1904 to 1915 and a pioneer conservationist.
