Abstract:

The collection contains Winslow Family correspondence and documents, 1730-1905, the majority of which pertains to John Winslow, e.g., "On American Slavery" and "The Citizen" and a folder of early Winslow manuscripts, 1730-1850. The latter includes papers of Shadrach Winslow, e.g., a book of his debates as a Yale undergraduate, c. 1770, on such subjects as the advantages of slavery and polygamy; various wills and letters relative to his Revolutionary service as a surgeon on board a privateer which he had outfitted, 1776; and his letters concerning illnesses and deaths in Foxboro in 1799. Also among the early items are: a cure for rabies, 1815; a phrenological study of Eleazer Robbins Winslow and his wife Ann Corbett Winslow (1793-1871); and letters exchanged among various family members.

The remainder of the collection consists of the correspondence and papers of John Winslow, 1844-1898. Included are student essays; a journal of law study, 1850, kept by Winslow while at Harvard; a journal of his trip to Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., 1850; and various letters exchanged with his parents in Newton Upper Falls, his brothers, and friend Edward Lillie Pierce (1829-1897) following Winslow's removal to Brooklyn. His correspondence with Pierce details his first legal case, the advantages of practicing law in New York, and developments in Massachusetts politics in 1853.

The bulk of Winslow's correspondence is devoted to his work with various historical societies, particularly as president of the New England Society of Brooklyn and secretary of the Long Island Historical Society. There are letters from many notable people of the era containing their responses to speaking invitations, e.g., Horace Greeley (1811-1872), William Tecumseh Sherman (1820-1891), William Henry Seward (1801-1872), Timothy Dwight (1828-1916), Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809-1894), and Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887). Greeley, Beecher, and Eunice White Bullard Beecher (1813-1897) also wrote concerning family matters.

Winslow was much interested in genealogical pursuits, and many letters relate to his researches, with which he was frequently aided by a cousin Lenora Jane Winslow (1825-1884). There are letters of congratulation concerning his article "The Battle of Lexington," 1898; letters addressed to his wife following his death; and a memorial booklet of eulogies written by members of the New England Society, 1898.

John Winslow was a distant relative of Don Avery Winslow (1824- ), for whom the Society has a collection of two manuscript diaries.
