Abstract:

This collection comprises correspondence, speeches, essays, public addresses and notes, bills, legal papers, and other material of James McDowell, chiefly during his terms as state legislator, governor, and congressman. Topics include slavery in Virginia and in the nation, but especially in the territories; internal improvements; temperance; nullification; Democratic party politics in Virginia; colonization societies; collegiate and literary societies; land speculation; currency and credit issues; and education, both public school and higher education in Virginia. Some papers relate to other members of the McDowell family. There is correspondence of Colonel James McDowell, Sarah McDowell, Susanna Preston McDowell, Charles Scott Venable and Thomas Hart Benton. Many family letters discuss agriculture and plantation management. Other materials include records pertaining to Washington College, a detailed emancipation contract between James McDowell and one of his slaves, and the childhood reminiscences of Francis Preston Venable, president of the University of North Carolina.
