Abstract:

Correspondence, literary materials, pamphlets, speeches, diaries, scrapbooks, financial records, and other materials documenting Donnelly's long and active career as townsite speculator at Nininger (Dakota County, Minn.), politician, author, editor and publisher of three newspapers, lieutenant governor of Minnesota (1860-1863), member of Congress (1863-1869), member of the Minnesota Senate (1874-1878, 1891-1893) and House (1887, 1897), and a national leader in third-party movements. Donnelly's correspondents were numbered by the hundreds and ranged from day laborers and local politicians to figures of national and international fame.

Much correspondence in the late 1850s relates to Nininger, being especially full on means of enticing immigrants thither and on townsite development. That of the 1860s includes much discussion of railroad land grants, other improvements to transportation and communications, administration of Indian affairs, and development of the West. Many letters reveal the views of Donnelly or his correspondents on such topics as nativism, slavery, reconstruction, Catholicism, civil-service reform, the tariff, agricultural societies and fairs, and the Shakespeare-Bacon controversy.

The 1870s correspondence is very full on the Granger movement, on Horace Greeley's presidential campaign, on Donnelly's paper "the Anti-Monopolist," and on local politics. There is also information on journalism, on land policies, on lyceums, and on the vast amount of lecturing that occupied much of Donnelly's time. In Donnelly's later years his correspondence was particularly concerned with the Farmers' Alliance and the Populist party.

The collection also includes a non-microfilmed addition (Manuscript Material) pertaining largely to his later years and his family and a 1-reel microfilm supplement of items (M177) received after the papers had been microfilmed (M138).
