Abstract:

Correspondence, clippings, articles, scrapbooks, and other materials documenting the activities of Edgar, a Minneapolis editor, and his daughter Marjorie. There is information on his editorship of the Bellman, a literary magazine (1906-1919) and of the Northwestern Miller, a grain trade journal (1882-1924); and the publication of his history of the Washburn-Crosby Co., entitled The Medal of Gold: A Story of Industrial Achievement (Minneapolis, 1925).

Present too is information on his association with such projects as an excursion of American millers to London, Paris, Amsterdam, and Rotterdam (1891); shipment of flour to Russia during a wheat famine (1891-1893); his work with Herbert C. Hoover in shipping flour to Belgium during World War I (1914-1915); and his speeches in England on the American war effort (1918).

Included also are data on construction of the Trans-Siberian Railroad (1894); Bates Label Company (Minneapolis), in which Edgar was a stockholder (1904-1907); reasons for the omission of the sixth verse from Julia Ward Howe's "Battle Hymn of the Republic" (1921-1922); economic conditions in Germany (1922-1923); Marjorie Edgar's experiences in Great Britain while studying the Girl Guide program (1920); her work in collecting Finnish folk songs; and family history. The papers also contain many autograph items from American and European notables.
