Benjamin Hurt Hardaway III Papers (MC 390)

 

Biographical Note

     These papers reflect the activities and history of the Hardaway family of Columbus, Georgia.  These papers primarily concern Benjamin Hurt Hardaway, Senior (1866-1928), his son Benjamin Hurt Hardaway, Junior (1891-1963) and his son, Benjamin Hurt Hardaway III (1919-2017), but also include significant materials on earlier members of both the Hardaway and related families

     Benjamin Hurt Hardaway was one of the sons of Robert Archelaus Hardaway (1829-1899) and his wife Rebecca (Beca) Hurt Hardaway (1837-1887).  This collection also relates very closely to the papers of Robert Early Hardaway (MC 256), who also descended from Robert Archelaus Hardaway.  The bulk of this material, however, relates to Benjamin Hurt Hardaway III.

     Benjamin Hurt Hardaway III was born on September 28, 1919 in Columbus, Georgia and died there on October 29, 2017.  He married Sarah McDuffie in 1945.  They had four daughters.  He was one of three children born to Benjamin Hurt Hardaway Jr. (1891-1963) and his wife Louise Buttolph Hardaway (1893-1977).     

     Benjamin H. Hardaway III (BHH III) was a businessman, banker, horseman, sportsman, and philanthropist.  He graduated from Columbus High School in 1936, attended VMI (class of '40), served in the U.S. Army during World War II and was among those who landed on Omaha Beach on D-Day.  He served as an aide-de-camp to Lt. General Manton S. Eddy.  After the war, he returned to his home in Columbus and assumed his part in running the family businesses, including the Hardaway Construction Company and the local Ford dealership, as well as serving on the boards of various banks and businesses, including the Royal Crown Cola Corporation.  He was also a member of the Rotary Club, the Chamber of Commerce and many sports-related organizations, including the Wildlife Legislative Fund, the Wildlife Conservation Fund, Masters of Foxhounds of America, and many others.  He also supported such diverse causes as the U.S. Equestrian Team, the National Infantry Museum, and many pro-hunting and pro-trapping lobbying organizations.  He was an active member of Saint Paul's Methodist Church.

Winthrop University – Hardaway Family Papers – Accession 222

Series 1 – Daybooks, Journals, Diaries and Daily Planners

     These "diaries" take many forms and had several functions.  Some are agendas, where social and business appointments were noted.  Some are business workbooks, where the activities of the various Hardaway business were tracked, including information on bids received and offered, expenses, income, etc.  Some are personal diaries that focused more on social and family activities.  Some are yearly and some are monthly.  There are some years that have multiple "diaries" where personal and business activities are kept separate, and in some years they are mixed.
     For the sake of convenience they are all referred to "Diary" in this finding aid.
     There is also overlap between the life-spans of the three men whose diaries we have and it is possible that some of the unsigned ones may have been placed with the wrong person.
     This series also includes a Rolodex and several address books, all apparently belonging to Benjamin Hurt Hardaway III.

Benjamin Hurt Hardaway III (1919-2017)– Diaries and Daily Planners

     From 1957-2004, Benjamin Hurt Hardaway III used pocket-sized monthly notebooks, labelled "diaries", as his daily planners and they comprised a rough draft of his days.  From 1998 through 2016 he also used a commercially printed daily planner. These may have been created by his secretary.  These might contain notes on his business activities, civic and philanthropic meetings, cost estimates for bidding on construction jobs, purchases of hunting dogs or horses, hunting trips, phone numbers, doctor's appointments, meals, parties, wines, notes about banking and business, addresses, telephone numbers, anniversaries and birthdays, Christmas and birthday gifts, and anything else of note for that day.

Benjamin Hurt Hardaway III/Sarah McDuffie Hardaway

     The BHH III correspondence is by far the most voluminous and covers a wide variety of subjects.  They were generally left as found.  In a few cases, however, materials were moved to other existing folders.  Topics include: thank-you notes; holiday and birthday cards; invitations; health; the Infantry Museum; books; church activities; the documentary and book about his life (Never Been Outfoxed); newspaper and magazine articles; vacations; birthdays; hunting and anti-hunting issues.  There is significant overlap with materials relating to the Midland Foxhounds, as well as some overlap with the Itineraries and Genealogy files.
     The correspondence reflects the extremely peripatetic nature of this generation of Hardaways, but there is a certain rhythm to their year.  The year began with January's annual Masters of Foxhounds Association gala in New York City with concurrent attendance at the annual meeting of the Moles (an engineering organization), followed by the annual meeting of the Alfalfa Club in Washington, D.C.  Then would follow an annual fox hunt in Virginia with a concurrent meeting of the Wildlife Legislative Fund/Wildlife Conservation Fund, usually in April, then a summer vacation in the highlands of North Carolina, grouse hunting in England in August, and in later years the Columbus Steeplechase and the Upatoi Polo Games to end the year.  In between these recurring events were visits to family and friends, many hunting trips involving foxes, cats, and birds, as well as fishing trips, among many other interests.

Allenheads Syndicate

     The syndicate was made up of from 10 to 20 individuals who rented the estate of Wentworth Hubert Charles Beaumont, 3rd Viscount Allendale (12 September 1922 – 27 December 2002) to hunt grouse for two weeks each fall, while living in the manor house, Allenhead Hall.  Lord Allendale was known as "Wenty".  In later years of the syndicate, the arrangements were managed by Lord Allendales' son and heir, also known as "Wenty".
     Members could opt to stay either one week or for both weeks and their dues were based on the length of their stay.  BHH III participated in these hunts from 1962 through 1992 and was the head of the syndicate from 1981 through 1991.  These materials document the membership, dues collection, payments to Lord Allenhead and his staff, and indicates how many grouse were killed and by whom over the 30 years that the syndicate operated.
     Besides correspondence with members concerning dues, dates, logistics, etc., there is also extensive correspondence with Allenhead Hall staff, the Connaught Hotel and other lodgings, wine and food shops in the village of Hexham, etc.  Letters signed "Podge" are from Patricia Blundell-Brown.

Midland Fox Hounds

     The following is taken verbatim from the website of the Midland Fox Hounds:

     The Midland Fox Hounds was organized right after World War II and recognized by the Masters of Foxhounds Association in 1950.  Benjamin H. Hardaway, III and Dr. Jack C. Hughston were elected Joint Masters with Ben Hardaway acting as huntsman.  The pack at first consisted of July hounds that Ben had since a teenager.  The hunt was given considerable support by the officers at nearby Fort Benning, Georgia, who were deprived of their sport when the United States Army sold all of their horses in 1948 and the Infantry School Hunt was disbanded.  The Midland Fox Hounds bought horses, saddles and pink coats from the Fort Benning dispersal.  We still have the infantry blue as our hunt colors.
     From 1948 to the present, Midland has established hunt countries with varying terrain and hunting conditions in Georgia and Alabama.  These are regularly hunted four days a week. For this incredible asset we are indebted to our gracious landowners.
     Ben Hardaway hunted the hounds for 45 years and gave up the horn to Mason Houghland Lampton in 1997.  Since then Mason has carried on the same breeding regiment for blending the cry, nose and speed of the July foxhound with the tractability and confirmation of the English Fell foxhound.  The Midland crossbred hounds have been drafted by many packs internationally as a source of the highest performance in hunting.
