Biographical or Historical Information
The 1907 Jamestown Exposition was held to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the establishment of Jamestown. Jamestown was the first permanent English settlement in the United States. The Exposition lasted from April 26 to December 1, 1907 and was held in Norfolk, Virginia. The Episcopal Church exhibited in the 1907 Exposition was the first Protestant Episcopal Church in America, guiding the people in building the society and maintaining order. The Committee on Arrangements of the Jamestown Exposition in conjunction with other churches and members of the community helped to establish and create this Tercentennial Celebration in 1907. The committee, on whom this collection is focused, gathered support, information, artifacts, and photographs all in the effort to hold an exposition honoring the first settlement in the United States. The Chairmen of this committee were Reverend Alfred Magill Randolph and Reverend Corbin Braxton Bryan.
