Abstract:

Family and general correspondence, speeches and writings, diaries, memoirs, notebooks, scrapbooks, and other papers documenting Blaine's public career. Includes a draft of his book, "Twenty Years of Congress" (1884-1886). Documents national and Republican Party politics during Reconstruction and afterward, the presidential campaign of 1884, and foreign policy in regard to Europe and Latin America. Portions of the general correspondence and the financial papers relate to Blaine's extensive business activities. The family correspondence series deals mainly with personal and family matters, but political and diplomatic affairs are discussed throughout.

Family correspondents include Blaine's wife, Harriet S. Blaine; his son, Walker Blaine; his daughter, Margaret Blaine Damrosch; his father, Ephraim Lyon Blaine; his mother, Maria Louise Gillespie Blaine; his great-grandfather, Ephraim Blaine; and his secretary, Thomas H. Sherman. The autograph collection contains single letters of Benjamin Franklin, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Benjamin Vaughan, and Daniel Webster, two letters of W.E. Gladstone, a copy of a George Washington letter, an endorsement of Abraham Lincoln, holograph notes of Henry Clay and of James Madison, and an autograph of John Quincy Adams.
