Abstract:

Primarily copies of correspondence, legal documents, speeches, pamphlets, and newsclippings relating to Davis family matters or to Davis's career as a lawyer; a judge in the Eighth Judicial Circuit of Illinois, 1848-1862; Abraham Lincoln's campaign manager; Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, 1862-1877; and U.S. Senator, 1877-1883. Most materials were collected by Willard L. King while writing a biography of Davis. Also present are a few original Davis items plus correspondence, prepublication manuscript, and reviews relating to King's book, 1950s-1964. Topics of the Davis materials include social and economic conditions in Illinois; life in Bloomington, Ill., and family affairs; political parties, especially the Whig and Republican parties, nationally and in Illinois; presidential campaigns and elections (1856-1876); Mormons in Illinois; the Mexican War; Davis's circuit-riding relationship with Lincoln, his riding partner; the antislavery movement; the rivalry between Norman B. Judd and John Wentworth; the Lincoln-Douglas debates; newspaper activities in Missouri and Chicago during the 1860s; the Civil War and particularly Missouri during the war; Davis as the administrator of Lincoln's estate; and the selection of a successor to Chief Justice Chase.
