Abstract:

Materials in this collection highlight the various business ventures of the Meredith family, documenting Jonathan Meredith's tannery (1772-1811), the overseas mercantile efforts of David Meredith who shipped goods between France and Philadelphia (1794-1797), and also the legal practices and political affiliations of both William (1772-1844) and William Morris Meredith (1799-1873). William's presidency of the Schuylkill Bank and William Morris's several political appointments, including his service as a Pennsylvania state representative (1824-1828), as the secretary of the treasury in the cabinet of Zachary Taylor (1849-1850), and as the Pennsylvania attorney general (1861-1867) are also highlighted. There are a number of Meredith women also represented in this collection, the most notable of whom is Gertrude Gouverneur Ogden Meredith, whose correspondence underscores her literary talents. A number of individuals related to the Merediths and some of their close friends are also represented including the merchant Thomas Hawthorn (Jonathan Meredith's son-in-law), Union General Sullivan Amory Meredith (son of William Meredith), and Port Folio editor Joseph Dennie.
