Abstract:

Papers of John A. Andrew (1818-1867), prominent anti-slavery lawyer and Civil War governor of Massachusetts, including correspondence, scrapbooks, and miscellaneous records. Also included are small amounts of papers of Andrew's wife, Eliza Jones Hersey Andrew, and of his son, John Forrester Andrew.

The collection covers Andrew's career as a supporter of temperance and an opponent of slavery. However, the bulk of the collection concerns the governorship (1861-1866). Among the areas well covered in the papers are: fugitive slave litigation including the Anthony Burns case; operations of the New England Emigrant Aid Company, which sponsored anti-slavery settlements in Kansas; Republican Party affairs in Massachusetts and the nation; Governor Andrew's leadership among northern state chief executives in raising funds and gathering troops for the Union cause; and his successful fight for the establishment of an all-black regiment. Among the important correspondents are: Charles Francis Adams, Richard Henry Dana, Jr., Edward Everett, William Lloyd Garrison, Abraham Lincoln, George Gordon Meade, William H. Seward, Edwin M. Stanton, Charles Sumner and Henry Wilson.
