4 1 Pound Papers: Chancellor of University System Correspondence, Sept.-Dec. 1933 4 Jere Madison Pound, and primarily Chancellor Philip Weltner; also Marion Smith, an Atlanta attorney; and T.W. Reed, registrar at the University of Georgia. More correspondence between Pound and Weltner. Pound is interested in the will of Dr. Thomas E. Mitchell, regarding trust funds he bequeathed for a scholarship at the Georgia State Teachers College (which became defunct). He wanted to see if these funds could be used at Valdosta; however, after a legal review by Atlanta attorney Marion Smith, it was determined this could not be done. Weltner visited the GSWC campus in early October. Included in the correspondence was a report from Guy Wells, president of South Georgia Teachers College in Statesboro, on the successful speech given there by George Washington Carver. Weltner encourages all University System presidents to have such speakers (Pound notes a tight budget). There is also a letter from Weltner regarding Pound's recovering from surgery.
