Abstract:

Wilson writes to Dabney, his former University of Virginia classmate (and later history professor at the University) regarding his life after ill health forced him to discontinue his studies.

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.

In addition the collection contains clippings pertaining to Woodrow and Edith Wilson including excerpts from an address by Woodrow Wilson to the New England Society of New York regarding Yankees and Scotch-Irish in America; pictures documenting the opening of the Woodrow Wilson bridge; and three obituaries for Edith Wilson.
