Abstract:

Early correspondence includes letters from Rev. Henry Richardson and letters of Henry Brown Richardson detailing his travels in Wisconsin and Illinois. Two sermons of Rev. Richardson are included. Civil War correspondence includes Henry Brown's letters (1863-1865) to his parents from Johnson Island Prison, Sandusky, Ohio; one of these is a lengthy letter discussing his sympathy for the Confederate cause. Papers after 1866 relate to his life in Saint Joseph, Tensas Parish, Louisiana. After 1877, papers concern his family life in New Orleans where he worked as an engineer; levees and flooding on the Mississippi River; Richardson's role as a member of the Mississippi River Commission; freedman and Chinese cotton laborers; the Freedman's Bureau; and local economic conditions during Reconstruction.

Correspondence of Anna Farrar Richardson to and from various members of the Richardson and Farrar families is included along with her diary (1899-1902), which describes family life in New Orleans, Mardi Gras celebrations, yellow fever outbreaks, and trips to Maine and Delaware by rail and steamer. The collection contains genealogical notes on the Farrar family, a photograph of Henry Brown Richardson and his seven sons (1904), and a copy of an oral history interview with Margaret Dixon (1967) of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, managing editor of the BATON ROUGE MORNING ADVOCATE. The interview was conducted by John F. Stewart, archivist of the John F. Kennedy Library. It describes Dixon's activities as a Louisiana delegate to the 1956 Democratic Convention.

Printed items include articles, newspaper clippings, and obituaries. Included are four maps of areas of Russia and Asia (1753), two maps of the battle field at Gettysburg (1876), and a map of the United States showing slaveholding regions and Indian Reservations (ca. 1860).
