Abstract:

Correspondence, diaries, scrapbooks, financial records, campaign literature, clippings, and printed material documenting the career of Adams, a political and business leader of Fergus Falls, Minnesota.

Adams' correspondence (1880s-1940s) with Republican political figures documents Minnesota and presidential election campaigns; the work of the state legislature; local party organization and political patronage; Republican opposition to the National Nonpartisan League (1917-1923) and the Farmer-Labor Party (1930s); women's political organizations and participation in state politics; activities of Prohibition and women's suffrage organizations (early 1900s); Adams' support of legislator Hannah J. Kempfer (1923-1941); and tax laws and other public issues.

Banking practices, regulation, consolidations, and failures (especially 1930s) and the activities of the First Bank Stock Corp.(1930s) are heavily documented. There is considerable information on the University of Minnesota's administration, finances, faculty, staff, and agricultural experiment stations; affairs of James J. Hill and the Northern Pacific and Great Northern railways; the history and development of Fergus Falls and Otter Tail County; Fergus Falls business, civil, and political affairs; Adams' real estate holdings; his work as census supervisor (1900); World War I civilian relief organizations; the work of the Reconstruction Finance Corp. (1932-1935); and the activities of Adams' children, Samuel P., Dorothy, and Marjorie.

Also included are letters, diaries, notebooks, and memorabilia of Adams' brother-in-law Reginald Reynolds, the first physician in Fergus Falls (1860-1898).
