Grant Donation to MSU
STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – Mississippi State honors a Holly Springs woman for her contribution to the campus-based Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library.
Thursday afternoon, Jorja Lynn donated a Grant collection that belonged to her late husband Michael Edward Lynn III.
The ceremony in the John Grisham Room of Mitchell Library was open to the public.
The donation includes busts of the former president, framed covers of Harper’s Weekly Magazines, framed mixed media and a variety of curios.
Lynn and his wife moved to Holly Springs where they restored the Walter Place, an important Ulysses S. Grant site, that inspired their collection.
