Abstract:

Correspondence, legal documents, clippings, and other papers concerning Melville W. Fuller's personal, professional, and political life, chiefly in the form of photostats collected by Willard L. King in the 1940s while writing a biography of Fuller. Included are briefs of all cases handled by Fuller as a practicing attorney before the Illinois Supreme Court and as Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Other topics include the Fuller family; Chicago real estate; and international disputes, particularly the Venezuelan boundary dispute (1890-1910) and the Muscat Dhows question (1904-07), which were handled by the Permanent Board of Arbitration at the Hague while Fuller was a member.

Correspondents include Samuel Blatchford, Henry Billings Brown, Grover Cleveland, J.C. Bancroft Davis, William Rufus Day, Stephen J. Field, Augustus Hill Garland, Horace Gray; Walter Q. Gresham, John Marshall Harlan, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Howell E. Jackson, Rufus Peckham, Erskine Phelps, William L. Putnam, Henry M. Shepherd, George Shiras, William Howard Taft, Lambert Tree, and Edward Douglas White.

Original documents in the collection primarily concern management of Fuller's Chicago real estate by John and Henry Morris (1870-1909, ca. 100 items). Topics also include lots in Graceland Cemetery and a commemorative service at Fuller's grave in 1940.

Microfilm boxed with the collection includes microfilm of the Day-Fuller papers at Northwestern University Law School and microfilm of Fuller correspondence with his daughter, Mrs. Hugh Campbell Wallace.

Collection includes correspondence (1950-67), bills for copying original manuscripts, contracts, clippings, reviews, and the annotated final manuscript of the book: Melville Weston Fuller, Chief Justice of the United States, 1888-1910, published by Macmillan in 1950, 2nd ed. published by University of Chicago Press, 1960. Topics include research, publication, and responses to the book.
