Alfred Eggleston Holcomb papers
Scope and Contents
The Alfred E. Holcomb Papers consist of correspondence, writings, and printed matter related to his activities as a tax reformer. The correspondence, 1913-34, is mainly with Charles J. Bullock and Edwin R. A. Seligman about their work as officers of the National Tax Association. The writings (mainly carbon copies of typed manuscripts by Holcomb and others) deal with the single tax, taxation of national banks, and other proposed reforms of property taxation. The printed matter consists mainly of pamphlets and broadsides published during campaigns for the single tax in the United States and Canada in the 1910s and early 1920s.
