Abstract:

Correspondence, diaries (1855-1893), articles, clippings, genealogies, accounts, reminiscences, and memorabilia relating chiefly to James Drew, a faculty member in the University of Minnesota School of Agriculture and Agricultural Extension Division (1893-1933), and to his father, Edward Bolivar Drew, a Winona County (Minn.) farmer and Minnesota legislator (1875-1876, 1879).

There is information on Edward's involvement with the Western Farm and Village Association, New York, which established a settlement in Winona County in 1852; his pioneering experiences in Winona County and in Wabash County, Indiana (especially 1849-1854); and his legislative service. Some of the information on farm and pioneer life is quite detailed. A record book for schools he taught in Hammondsport (N.Y.) and Wabash County is also present.

Documented too are James's association with Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y., as a student and faculty member (1887-1889); his career at the University of Minnesota; his articles for the Rural New Yorker (1887-1910s); and his books on blacksmithing and rope work (1934-1948).

Also included are data on the Boy Scout and 4-H Club movements (ca. 1918-1940s); Winona County history; St. Peter, Nicollet County (1850s); Fatherless Children of France (1918-1921); and family history and affairs.

Correspondents include Clifford W. Ashley, Daniel C. Beard, Joseph Hilaire Belloc, Herbert W. Collingwood, Manfred J. Holmes, Charles H. Steffens, Paul Thompson, William Windom, J.S. Woodward, and several family members.
