Abstract:

The James Family Papers is comprised of correspondence, photographs, and ephemera relating to Willis S. James (1847-1917) and his descendents. In addition to correspondence between family members, the papers include a diary, financial records, photographs, newspaper clippings, essays, notes taken by Helen James for an American literature class at Yale University, and ephemera. Also included is a letter of recommendation written by Marshall Jewell for Willis S. James. The papers document the everyday life of an African-American family at the turn of the 20th century. The correspondence describes, for example, daily routines (such as worklife, studies, church attendance) as well as observations on literature and the natural world. In their correspondence Helen and Harriett James write about their time as students at Hampton Institute. Helen James went on to teach at an orphanage in Hawaii and at a rural school in South Carolina -- experiences that are richly described in correspondence with her sister Bertha James Lane. Willis H. James records his experiences in the military (including overseas duty during the Philippine-American War) and arrest after shooting a white man in Georgia. At the time of writing the correspondence, family members lived in various locations throughout the United States, including Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, New York, South Carolina, and Virginia.
