Abstract:

Papers of various members of a prominent Madison, Wisconsin, family, together with genealogical information collected by Julia Hanks Mailer. Primarily documented are banker Lucien Stanley Hanks (1838-1926), his sons Stanley Charles Hanks (1872-1945) and Lucien Mason Hanks, Sr. (1868-1950), and Lucien M.'s wife, Mary Esther Vilas Hanks (1873-1959), but there is also some general information about Madison history.

The Lucien S. correspondence includes exchanges with William Dempster Hoard, Samuel Marshall, and E. Ray Stevens. Additional items concern management and construction of the State Historical Society Building, the State Bank, and the Washburn Observatory. The State Bank is also documented by an architectural drawing by Stephen V. Shipman. There are also recollections of Wisconsin banking, sharing a room at the Tallman House with Abraham Lincoln, and meeting David Farragut and Brigham Young.

Correspondence of Lucien Mason Hanks, Sr. consists of letters to friends and relatives, business associates, and personal charities. Realtor Stanley C. Hanks is represented by a talk on Madison History. (His large collection of photographs on the history of Madison is separately catalogued.) Lucien Stanley Hanks II, the son of Stanley, is represented by two recorded talks (Tape 1366A) about early industry and aviation in Madison.

The Mary Esther Vilas Hanks papers are actually the files of the bank trust officer who managed Mrs. Hanks' investments. Mrs. Hanks is also represented by a 1957 interview on disc (also available as Tape 146A) about her father, Col. William F. Vilas, her life in Washington, D.C. while her father was part of the Cleveland administration, family homes in Madison, the Vilas House hotel, her civic interests and life in Madison, and the Vilas and Hanks families.

Various members of the family and their residences are represented by formal and candid photographs and negatives. The majority represent Stanley's family and many were probably taken by him. Other photographs represent Lucien M.'s fraternity and musical associations at the University of Wisconsin, his wife's associations as a girl, and Mrs. Grover Cleveland, in whose wedding she was an attendant. Several photographs relate to her involvement with the Mount Vernon Ladies Association.
