Abstract:

Autobiographical memoirs ([1900-1902]), correspondence (1863-1912), articles and addresses ([1894-1911]), scrapbooks of editorial columns (1887-1906), obituaries and news clippings (1912 and 1944), and additional papers of a Union soldier, lawyer, newspaper publisher, editorialist, and secretary of the Minnesota Democratic State Central Committee related to his service in the Civil War, party politics and national economic policy during the 1890s, and his thought as an editorial columnist.

The correspondence includes letters from such prominent political figures as Grover Cleveland, Henry George, Robert M. LaFollette, Elihu Root, and J. Sterling Morton dealing mainly with the Democratic party's stand on tariff revision. Articles and speeches address the topics of free trade, bimetalism, Democratic party principles, Minnesota taxation, and public financing of education. Democratic party materials include a letterpress book largely concerning patronage (1893-1894); a record book concerning postmasterships (ca. 1893); a ledger (1892-1896); minutes of the State Central Committee and of the state conventions (1892-1894); and clippings on the Minnesota Democratic platform of 1890. The scrapbooks contain newspaper columns Smalley wrote while publisher of the Caledonia Argus as well as those he wrote for the St. Paul Dispatch.

Smalley's 170-page autobiography (1900, 1902) offers observations on frontier life in Wisconsin and Minnesota (1847-1860); information on his Civil War service with the Fourth Wisconsin Infantry at New Orleans, Louisiana (1862), on General Henry W. Halleck's invasion of the Red River Valley of the South (1863), his service as an officer in the 99th U.S. Colored Infantry (1863-1866), and his observations of graft and war profiteering; his experiences with the Freedmen's Bureau in the South (1868); the family's foundary work in Manitowac, Wisconsin; his law practice (1869-1889) and newspaper career (1880-1891) in Caledonia, Houston County (Minn.); and his life in St. Paul, where he served as clerk of the Minnesota House of Representatives (1891), secretary of the Dairy and Food Commission (1899-1900), officeholder in the Minnesota Democratic Association (1890s), and editorial writer for the St. Paul Daily Globe and the St. Paul Dispatch (1891-1906).
