Abstract:

Routine records of philanthropic donations by Chicago industrialist Cyrus H. McCormick to a variety of organizations and individuals. Grouped by recipient, the files typically include a letter of appeal, McCormick's or his secretary's response, his secretary's letter enclosing the check, letters from the recipient thanking him for the money, and occasional correspondence between McCormick and his secretary on how much to give; all enclosed with a slip for each recipient identifying the subject with remarks on what the donation was for.

The individuals McCormick gave to varied from people asking for a few dollars to large yearly donations. Organizations represented include those concerned with world peace, Native Americans, education, the Presbyterian Church of Chicago and the United States, women's and children's charities, and Chicago area philanthropies. Miscellaneous volumes in the series are donation record lists, dockets, financial record books, and YMCA International Committee subscription books.
