Abstract:

Consists of correspondence, documents, ledgers, photographs of the Meteor Crater (Ariz.) site, and printed matter of Barringer (Princeton University Class of 1879) and his son Brandon, as well as several other members of the Barrringer family.

Daniel Barringer's correspondence contains letters which deal with scientific and business activities in mining and meteorology, including those of several companies which Barringer founded or developed, such as the Hanover Bessemer Iron and Copper Company, El Palmarito Leasing Company, the Texas Iron Association, and the Meteor Crater Exploration & Mining Company (general manager, George M. Calvocorresses, a major correspondent). The collection reflects Barringer's accomplishment in being the first to advance the theory that Meteor Crater was caused by the fall of a meteoric cluster, probably a small comet. There are also letters by fellow college classmate Woodrow Wilson, whose correspondence indicates that Barringer was not only a friend but also a personal adviser on mining and geological matters. In addition, the correspondence includes letters by Theodore Roosevelt, Owen Wister, General Leonard Wood, and Elihu Thomson.

Brandon Barringer's series covers a period primarily from 1817 to 1979, and includes a large amount of business and personal correspondence from Brandon Barringer's life and career, along with financial reports, memoranda, minutes of meetings, and copies of legal documents; plus clippings, periodicals and other printed materials compiled by Barringer regarding his associations with various businesses and scientific and medical organizations (up to 1979). Other materials in the collection such as field notes, maps, manuscripts and clippings reflect Brandon Barringer's various scientific interests. Research materials and correspondence for a book of family history he co-authored with his cousin, L. Wethered Barroll, THE WETHERED BOOK, is included, along with correspondence, reports, orders and other papers regarding his military career in the Army Air Force Office of Statistical Control (1942-1948). Photographs, newspaper clippings, and other miscellaneous items regarding Brandon Barringer's personal and family matters add to the significant amount of personal correspondence.
