Abstract:

Papers consist of correspondence, legal, financial, and business records, writings, and other items. Included are the professional and personal papers of Theodore D. Jervey (b. 1859); the papers of Lewis S. Jervey (1848-1927), William St. Julien Jervey (1847-1915), Theodore D. Jervey (1817-1892), and William G. Eason (1828-1898); the records of William C. Bee & Co. (factors), Jervey & Bacot (factors), Halsey Lumber Co., and Ravenel & Jervey (brokers); and proceedings and addresses (1895) of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Camp Moultrie.

Papers of Theodore D. Jervey (b. 1859) consist of family, personal, professional, and business correspondence, legal records, writings, organizational papers, legal and personal accounts, estate papers, clippings, ephemera, slides, and other items.

Correspondence relates to Jervey's historical interests and research (mostly for books and articles on slavery, railroads, and American history, politics, and political figures); contemporary politics, including Jervey's involvement as chairman of the Charleston County Democratic Executive Committee and issues such as state and local tax reform, the League of Nations, foreign affairs, economic policy, and the Ku Klux Klan; Afro-Americans; local, state, and national elections; Jervey's book on Robert Y. Hayne and other writings; family matters; his personal finances and the estate of his father Theodore D. Jervey, Sr.; land transactions and business interests; legal affairs; art; and other matters. Among the correspondents are Jervey family members, politicians, and historians, including Benjamin Tillman, Lewis S. Johnstone, and William H. Thomas.

Legal papers of Jervey as an attorney and judge include dockets, correspondence, legal journals, court documents, and abstracts of title. Financial records include Jervey's legal and personal accounts (1884-1945) and a ledger (1892-1930) for his father's estate. Organizational papers relating to the Charleston Library Society, South Carolina Historical Society, College of Charleston, Charleston League of Nations Society, and Charleston County Democratic Party include correspondence, financial records, journals, and membership lists.

Writings include essays, pamphlets, memoirs, poems, short stories, a draft of an unpublished novel, speeches, and fragments of a manuscript of the novel, "The Elder Brother." Lantern slides (1910-1920) were used in Jervey's lectures on race relations, freedmen, Negro suffrage, military science, and other topics.
