The papers of Matthew Delamere Cooper document his activities as a planter and businessman, including his partnership with his brother-in-law, Duncan Brown Frierson, in a New Orleans commission house, M.D. Cooper and Co. Letters especially reflect the cotton market in New Orleans during the 1850s and 1860s. Also included are letters of two sons of M.D. Cooper, Edmund and Henry, both lawyers and state legislators of Shelbyville, Tennessee. Edmund was also a Union sympathizer and private secretary to Andrew Johnson. A few items relate to the shooting of Edward Ward Carmack and the involvement of Duncan Brown Cooper (son of M.D. Cooper) in that incident. There is a large amount of genealogical material for the Cooper and related families of Bond, Brown, Frierson, McNeilly, Sansom, Stockell, and Strickler. Other items of interest are materials relating to the death of Meriwether Lewis; Cooper family emigration to Mississippi and Texas; a diary and letter relating to the 2nd Seminole War, 1836; and a Mexican War diary of Albert Gallatin Cooper.
