Abstract:

Encompasses the records of three generations of the Osborne family of Auburn, N.Y. Thomas Mott Osborne, son of businessman David Munson Osborne, was associated with Democratic politics, philanthropy, and social reform, especially prison reform. He was a trustee and later president of the George Junior Republic in Freeville, New York. In 1913, he was appointed chairman of the New York State Commission on Prison Reform. His third son, Lithgow, served in the foreign service in Germany from 1914-1917, and later in Havana, Copenhagen, and Norway. He subsequently left government service to pursue a career in newspaper publishing with the Auburn Citizen-Advertiser. Collection includes correspondence (1812-1968); speeches (1895-1945); legal and financial papers (1786-1962); organizational records (1813-1967); memorabilia (1845-1965); diaries (1843-1946), and other material.

The correspondence (over 150,000 items) includes letters of authors, bankers, businessmen, U.S. cabinet officers, civil servants, clergy, convicts, diplomats, educators, inventors, journalists, lawyers, legislators, musicians, politicians, publishers, and social reformers. Correspondence which is of most significant depth and duration includes that with Josephus Daniels, Charles Devens, Christian A. Herter, Louis M. Howe, Herbert H. Lehman, Lucretia Coffin Mott, George Foster Peabody, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt, Alfred E. Smith, Katrina Trask, and Oswald Garrison Villard.
