Collection Description & Arrangement

For reasons that have not been discerned, these law office files were maintained in three sets, and so they are now arranged in three series although none is very long. The entire collection fills 21 boxes (9.1 linear feet) and spans 1924 to 1952, with most of the papers concentrated in the years 1933 to 1942.

Series I in Boxes 1 - 12 contains case files for the State Highway Department, Norfolk and Western Railway, Virginia Auto Mutual Insurance, Appalachian Electric Power, and other corporations Collins represented including the theatre owner (Byers Theatre v. Murphy). This series also has his Commissioner of Accounts reports and files for individual private clients. These records covering 1933-42 were in folders numbered 1 to 217, although some of that number are missing; the numerical order has been retained.

Series II in Boxes 12 - 16 covers the same time period and were numbered (1 - 372 with many gaps) in the law office. This numerical arrangement is also roughly chronological. Many of these files contain one or two pieces of correspondence about relatively simple matters, although the contents of some of them relate to cases in the other series. Because Collins' various groupings for his files have been preserved, researchers will benefit from a careful reading of the box list when trying to follow a particular case.

Finally, Series III in Boxes 16 - 21 contains files that were in no particular order, so they have been arranged alphabetically. The types of cases here are similar to those in Series I, but the predominant years are the mid-1920's and the later 1940's.

Biographical & Historical Information

Lewis Preston ("Pat") Collins was born in Lynchburg, Virginia, in 1896. He was educated in the public schools of Marion, Virginia and attended Washington and Lee University until he was called to serve in World War I. In 1919 he began the study of law at Yale University and was awarded the LL.B. in 1922, the same year that he received his B.A. from Washington and Lee. Collins was admitted to the Virginia Bar in July of 1922 and immediately set up his law practice in the town of Marion. As his practice grew, he also became active in local civic organizations and politics, eventually becoming district chairman of the Democratic Party.

Marion, the Smyth County seat, is located in southwest Virginia about forty miles northeast of Bristol and a hundred miles southwest of Roanoke. Collins carried on a civil practice which primarily served people in Smyth and the adjacent counties of Washington and Wythe. Early in his career he represented individuals in family, probate and real estate matters and served as "committee" for veterans with mental or emotional problems in order that they could receive their Veterans' Administration benefits. In 1933 when the Federal Home Owners' Loan Act established the Home Owners' Loan Corporation, Collins served as local counsel and handled closings for the Corporation. A year later he was appointed Commissioner of Accounts of the Circuit Court of Smyth County and became responsible for the settlement of accounts when wills were probated in that court. Toward the end of the 1930's Collins began to make investigations, settle claims and handle lawsuits for the Virginia Auto Mutual, Pennsylvania, and State Farm insurance companies. When the State Highway Department began planning to build Route 11 through his area of the state, he represented the department in disputes over the value of land and handled the settlements of payment for land claimed for the highway. Soon thereafter he began to handle similar cases for the Norfolk and Western Railway, which was running a track parallel to the new highway. Collins' other corporate clients included the Kroger Grocery and Baking Company, the town of Saltville, the Appalachian Electric Power Company, the Saltville plant of the Mathieson Alkali Works, and the Marion National Bank. He also represented one of the defendants in an antitrust case brought by an independent theatre owner against several competitors and a number of the major film companies.

Collins was the delegate from his district to the Virginia General Assembly from 1936 until 1946 when he was elected Lieutenant Governor. After serving a term under Governor William M. Tuck, Collins ran and won again, this time to serve with Governor John S. Battle. However, Collins' promising political career was cut short by his untimely death at the age of 56.
