Ebenezer Hiram Stedman, whose lively reminiscences of antebellum Kentucky were written as a series of letters to his daughter, was one of the pioneer papermakers of the state. Stedman paints a vivid picture of the life of the numerous and thriving middle class who sought opportunity in the expanding economy of the new West. The vivid detail of Stedman’s personal experiences is supplemented by a more formal account of early Kentucky papermaking.
Frances L. S. Dugan, associate archivist at the University of Kentucky, was curator of the special collection in the history of books and printing.
Jacqueline P. Bull was head of the archives department in the University of Kentucky Libraries.
