Summary
  • This collection consists of unclaimed property personal papers (Accession 50624) delivered to the Virginia Dept. of the Treasury from banks, executors, administrators or any other safekeeping repositories who have come into the possession of unclaimed property. Typically these personal papers will include correspondence, financial records, and legal or business papers from estates with unknown heirs
  • Lot 13067 contains a card with messages in English, French, and Spanish, dated May 1977; a copy of the birth certificate for Steven Cavanaugh Manning, 11 Apr. 1949; and a notebook with diary entries by Manning under the title "'Abandon Hope,' Part the Second" detailing his time at the Springhill Institution, a Canadian federal corrections facility in Nova Scotia. Only some of the entries have dates and none include a year, although the diary was most like written sometime between 1977 and 1980. Manning, who was born in Chicago and attended the University of Virginia, mentions that he has received a ten-year sentence but does not disclose the reason. Manning frequently includes literary allusions and quotations in his journal entries, as well as observations on his fellow inmates, the correctional officers, and local townspeople. He also mentions such topics as the Ian Smith and the Bush Wars in Rhodesia, serial killer Ted Bundy, and recent prison riots. In the final entry, dated 22 June, Manning has gone before a parole board and been granted parole. The last few pages of the notebook, which is missing its back cover, contain notes, quotations, and lists of words
