Abstract:

Letters, reminiscences, genealogical data, and miscellany of this Presbyterian missionary, his wife Mary Ann Longley Riggs, and other family members, focusing on the Riggs' missionary service at Lake Harriet (now Minneapolis) and Lac Qui Parle, Minnesota (1837-1862), his work as an interpreter during the 1862 Dakota Conflict, and his subsequent activities as an author of Dakota-language teaching materials.

Included is extensive correspondence with Riggs and Longley family members; letters from other missionaries in Minnesota and Dakota Territory; letters from Minnesota and national political leaders; letters from religious organizations, especially the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, the American Bible Society, and the American Tract Society; and many letters from Indians, most in the Dakota language. There is also information on the Civil War, settlement of Indian claims for land and money, and the publication of Riggs' writings, and a set of biographical sketches of American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions missionaries.
