Bulk of the collection is family correspondence with details on various British, Anglo-Persian and Anglo-American topics. Henry Burgess's papers, 1794-1863, concern the monetary, fiscal and commercial policies of the British government. Pepers of Frances Ridsdale Burgess, wife of Henry Burgess, depict the life of a Victorian woman living in London and then Brighton from 1827 to 1847. Papers of Charles and Edward Burgess provide firsthand information on Persia from 1828 to 1855 including Anglo-Persian commercial and political relations as well as political conditions within Persia. George Burgess's papers, ca. 1830-1888, contain correspondence, account books, and diary of 1840-1843, and reflect his activities as a textile importer and businessman transplanted from England to the U.S. A fourth Burgess brother, Joseph, is represented by correspondence, 1827-1831, and schoolboy writings. Also included in the collection are correspondence, 1859-1929, and other writings of the wife and children of George Burgess; original watercolors and sketches done by family members; and genealogical materials (in photostat).
