Biographical/Historical Sketch:

Ernest A. Walen was born in Gloucester, Massachusetts, on June 8, 1896. He had prepared to enroll in Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the fall of 1916, but when his summer employment in a manufacturing plant resulted in a promotion and a salary increase, he "postponed further education." Walen's business activity in the mid-1960's centered in a corporation, located in Springfield, Massachusetts, named the Heatbath Corporation, which manufactured metal treating processes.

In 1958 Ernest A. Walen began corresponding with Dr. William D. McCain about membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans. He became an honorary member of Camp 584 in Jackson, Mississippi, in that same year. By late 1960 Walen had requested a life membership in the organization. His interest in the Confederacy continued, and by mid-1962 he was conducting genealogical research which he hoped would lead to his membership in the Order of Stars and Bars, an internal organization of the Sons of Confederate Veterans for descendants of Confederate officers.

As early as the 1940's, Walen began to collect materials on the Confederacy and the South in general. He continued this hobby for more than twenty years, amassing more than 5, 000 published volumes along with 600 Confederate imprints, numerous pamphlets, and other materials. The collection, which was willed at his death to the University of Southern Mississippi, was appraised at $53, 294.50.

Ernest A. Walen died January 4, 1969, in Longmeadow, Massachusetts. His collection was received at the University of Southern Mississippi in October 1969.
