Abstract:

This collection was assembled in three major accessions, one being a group, 1791-1864, containing letters to and from Bancker and other members of his family on education, business, and personal topics, with such correspondents as Samuel Hazard, H.M. McIlvaine, James C. Montgomery, and John T. Montgomery (2 boxes). The bulk of the collection was received after 1966 and is more diverse, with more correspondence both earlier and later among family members; and also with many "extraneous" letters from prominent Americans. Many of thse letters are addressed to Frederick Beasley of the University of Pennsylvania.

C.N. Bancker was in business and trade prior to 1826, and in the insurance business after that date, so there is material relating to those topics in this collection. He owned a substantial library of the period, which was used by Charles Wilkes' Expedition after 1837 (see Reynell Coates to Bancker). This library, along with Bancker's notable scientific instrument collection, was sold after his death and there are published auction catalogues in the collection.
