Summary:
Materials in this series consist of hand-written letters, documents, business papers and manuscripts. There are almost no "autographs" in the sense of signatures collected from famous persons. The signatures of Theodore Dreiser and Theodore Roosevelt appear on typewritten letters. Letters from such notables as William McAdoo (U.S. Secretary of the Treasury), Chauncey DePew (U.S. Senator) and Schuyler Colfax (U.S. Vice President) are present. These, and the great majority of letters and documents, concern business and/or political affairs. Apart from the historical interest of the subject matter found in the letters and manuscripts, the researcher may learn much about the legal and epistolary syles of the late 18th through the early 20th centuries.
