Abstract:

The papers consist of correspondence, writings, notes and research materials, clippings, memorabilia, photographs and financial records of William Graham Sumner, a sociologist, professor at Yale University, and advocate of free trade and the gold standard. The correspondence (over 13,000 items) documents many of Sumner's interests including the Yale College curriculum and economic and political issues. It also includes substantive accounts from friends in the South about Reconstruction, the Freedmen's Bureau, and the Tilden-Hayes election. Family correspondence spans the years 1863-1908. There are over 100 letters written by Sumner during the last years of his life to Albert Galloway Keller. Writings in the papers include manuscripts of published and unpublished works, among which are two unpublished books on paper currency. Essays, both complete and fragments, sermons from his service as an Episcopal minister, drafts of lectures, addresses, and several items of fiction are also included. Sumner's exhaustive notes cover a variety of topics on American and European history. The largest set is made up of 250,000 note cards, catalogued and used in the preparation of Science of Society. Among his major correspondents are E.S. Dana, Timothy Dwight, Morton Easton, Irving Fisher, Edwin Godkin, Charles Hines, Alfred Bishop Mason, Simon Newcomb, Joseph Sumner and David Ames Wells. These papers previously formed part of the Sumner-Keller collection.
