This small collection of papers was found in an old trunk purchased at an auction or sale and then donated to the University Archives. There was nothing to identify the papers as a whole, but most of the items have some reference to prominent Louisvillians Alice Speed Stoll or her husband Berry Stoll, including correspondence addressed to one or both of them.
Scope and Contents
Alice Speed Stoll was the daughter of William S. Speed, president of the Louisville Cement Company and founder of the Louisville Collegiate School. Berry Stoll was the vice-president of Stoll Oil Refining Company and the son of its president, Charles C. Stoll. The Stolls were in the national news following the much-publicized kidnapping of Mrs. Stoll in October 1934, but nothing in this collection refers to the kidnapping.
