Biographical/Historical note

Harry Lee Dalton was born in Winston, North Carolina on June 13, 1895 to Corine McCanless and Rufus I. Dalton. A graduate of Trinity College (now Duke University), he served in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War I. At the end of the war Dalton entered the textile business as a salesman, and this experience led to his service as a textile advisor with the War Production Board during World War II. Dalton had a successful career in banking and finance and served as an officer and investor in numerous companies, including American Viscose Corporation, American Credit Corporation and Wachovia Bank. His other business interests included investments in oil extraction ventures, mainly through the Ancora Corporation. Along with his wife, Mary Keesler, Dalton collected art, rare books, and manuscripts, and made many contributions to art museums and libraries, most notably the Duke University Library, the Mint Museum, and the library of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Dalton died in Charlotte in on July 26, 1990. [For additional biographical information, see John L. Sharpe III, The Life of Harry L. Dalton, 2 volumes (Edinburgh: Pentland Press, 1986-89).
