From Her Hand: Sally Wait’s Mission South

Mary Tribble

In June of 1993, a stamp dealer from Locust, N.C., contacted Wake Forest University with a sheath of letters, documents and journals to sell. The documents were in the possession of a caretaker who had received them upon the death of the youngest daughter of the youngest grandson of Sally and Samuel Wait. How these 19th-century documents survived at all — and then found their way to ZSR Library’s Special Collections — is just one in a series of unlikely incidents that led to the unfolding of Sally Wait’s story.

On Monday, April 4, at 4 p.m., Mary Tribble (’82, MA ’19) will present “From Her Hand: Sally Merriam Wait’s Mission South” at the ZSR Auditorium. Register for the event or watch the livestream.
