Scope and Contents:
The main component of this collection is a double-spaced typewritten document of 858 pages transcribed (apparently in 1903) from original records and consisting of correspondence, newspaper articles, technical descriptions, legal documents, and other material relating to John Stevens, his professional work and career. Some of the correspondence is between Stevens and his rival inventors, such as Robert Fulton, credited with producing the first steamboat.

Other documents in the collection are the orginal papers incorporating the Danville and Pottsville RR in 1831 and a carefully detailed survey and cost estimate of the Camden and Amboy RR in 1830.
Biographical / Historical:
John Stevens (1749 1838) of New York, inventor and engineer, graduated from King's College (now Columbia University) in 1768. Admitted to the New York Bar in 1771, he served as treasurer of New Jersey during the Revolutionary War. He became interested in steam powered navigation in 1787 and for the next fifty years was active in building and promoting steam boats and trains, securing numerous patents, and inventing such important developments as the screw propellor. He established the worlds first steam ferry, between New York City and Hoboken, New Jersey and later built the first operating steam locomotive in the United States Stevens secured a charter from the Legislature of Pennsylvania for the Pennsylvania Railroad, from Philadelphia to Lancaster County. Two of John Stevens' seven sons, Robert and Edwin were also prominent engineers and developers of transportation equipment who collaborated with their father.

"Pamphlet on Railroads" by John Stevens, originally released in 1812 and republished with a preface by Charles King in 1852. This pamphlet proposed the construction of a railroad from Lake Erie to Albany in lieu of a canal which had been proposed by a New York State Commission. Stevens' railroad, which would have propelled a 100 ton cargo at four miles per hour using a 20 horse power steam engine, was estimated by him to cost only one third the projected outlay for the canal. Stevens' proposal was rejected by a New York State government committee which had doubts about the feasibility of the scheme.

Letter to President James Madison dated 3/9/1816 from John Stevens proposing construction of a combined railroad water transportation system from Providence, RI to Savannah, Georgia, a distance of more than 1,000 miles.

A letter (unsigned) to Senator Calhoun (1/22/1817) seeking U.S. Government support for a Trenton New Brunswick (NJ) railroad. John Stevens' letter to President Monroe (10/21/1818) further supporting railroads. Letter to W.H. Crawford, Secretary of the Treasury (10/31/1818) further asking public support for railroads. Letter to Thomas Jefferson (11/7/1818) and a reply from Jefferson (11/23/1818) pleading "infirmities of age" for not reading Stevens' papers, but supporting generally "every improvement which may better the condition of mankind". A similar reply from James Madison (11/17/1818). A letter to W.H. Crawford (11/27/1818) and reply (12/4/1818) stating that no money was available to support Stevens' plans.
