Frank Grimes -- [MS 73]

     Frank Grimes was a very respected newspaper editor for the Abilene Reporter News. There were several articles written by the colleagues of Mr. Grimes explaining his great ability to write and what a great man he was.
     The greatest portion of the papers are poems written by Mr. Grimes. There are hundreds of poems ranging in tipics from fishing to war. There are also a few short stories included in the papers which Mr. Grimes wrote and some editorials and essays. Mr Grimes also wrote a section for the paper titled "Little Essays," and many of these are included in the manuscript.
     In the manuscript there are a few papers that were not written by Mr. Grimes, but do relate to him. An example of these papers is the memorialization booklet for R. K. Grimes, son of Frank Grimes, and a letter to the daughter of Mr. Grimes about the death of R. K. Grimes. There are also four volumes of a book titled Southern Kirth and Kin written by Jewel Davis Scarborough and personally autographed by the author.
