- This collection contains presentation memorabilia related to Henry Clay, American Statesman, given to Henry Clay Reed, University of Delaware professor and historian, by Henry Clay Conrad, historian and State Archivist of Delaware. Items include two copies of engravings of Henry Clay, a silk ribbon commemorating Clay, and a presentation letter (1929) from Conrad to Reed. Reed had worked for Conrad at the Delaware State Archives. In the letter, Henry Clay Conrad explains that he is sending two prints of Henry Clay engravings to Reed because both men are his namesakes; Reed later added the ribbon to the engravings and had all three pieces mounted for display.
