Scope and Contents

From the Series:

This series includes memorabilia, articles, biographical material, citations, certificates, and other ephemera collected or created by Holland throughout his life. The memorabilia includes an Orange Bowl Official armband, a General MacArthur button, a "Candidate for County Judge" card, and a political cartoon. There are numerous certificates related to election results in Florida, as well as an honorary degree in Civil Law from the University of Florida. Published articles include information on the 24th Aero Squadron in World War I, the Pan American Highway, and Holland hunting with his son. Of particular interest is the autobiography Holland began preparing during his retirement but left unfinished upon his death in 1971. In addition, there are copies of 1913 correspondence related to Holland's application for the Rhodes Scholarship, including a brief biographical summary written by Holland to the scholarship committee. Files are arranged alphabetically.
