Abstract: This collection contains a typed and long hand manuscript representing parts of what appears to be two different documents. The document that is titled, “Scion of the Flat Woods, Poor Lands: Courageous People,” is Richardson’s autobiography which he evidently intended to publish at some time, but never did. From references within the work, it seems that it was largely written during the years of WWII. The other document is an incomplete work of fiction. There is also a photocopy of Richardson’s autobiography titled, “Scion of the Flat Woods, Poor Lands: Courageous People.”
