|Other Titles:||Woodrow Wilson letters|
Of greatest interest are twenty letters, 1881-1889, written after Wilson left the University of Virginia. In them he discusses his law studies, health, the University, the Jefferson Society, fellow students including future U. Va. professor Charles Kent, impressions of Johns Hopkins and Bryn Mawr, his early writings, marriage, history, and politics.
Later letters are shorter and more conventional in content, but contain occasional allusions to public affairs and the presidency.
The collection also contains one letter from Wilson to the University of Virginia Board of Visitors recommending the hiring of Dabney as a professor.
In addition to the 90+ letters from Wilson the collection contains letters or telegrams from Ellen A. Wilson, Edith Bolling Wilson, Newton Baker, John Randolph Bolling, A.S. Burleson, Assistant Secretary of State William Phillips, Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, William Howard Taft, J.P. Tumulty and the Italian ambassador. Most of these letters concern issues which Dabney brought to Wilson's attention.
