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.
