Abstract:

Professional and personal papers of Edward Griffin Beckwith -- his journals, ledgers, accounts, military records, personal and official correspondence, chiefly related to his post-Mexican War service. His journals that he kept during his service in California and letters to his wife recount his life in the West, including details of death of John William Gunnison and his encounters with Mormons.

Also included are two annotated maps of New Mexico Territory, California, and Utah (1853), Beckwith's records of spiritualistic sǎnces (1860- 1872), and some photographs.

The collection also contains letters of John Laurence Fox to his parents, wife, and son written between 1837 and 1864. Included are letters dealing with the Exploring Expedition, the mission to the Mediterranean, slave trade in West Africa, Matthew C. Perry's mission to Japan, foreign intervention in China, Taiping Rebellion, and the Civil War. This portion of the collection also contains his surgeon's commission (1847), and newspapers clippings related to the death of Charles Eben Fox.
