Abstract:

The alphabetically-arranged collection, the bulk of which is correspondence, is arranged into the following series: Correspondence, Manuscripts, Clippings, Documents and Ephemera. The correspondence includes condolence letters, letters by and about Henry E. Huntington and Collis P. Huntington, letters related to Ward's honorary degrees, posthumous requests for biographical information about Ward, and letters related to the Ward Memorial dedication ceremony. The manuscripts feature Ward's personal diaries, biographical accounts written by and about Ward, two journals about trips to the Sierra mountains that were written by John B. Miller and that contain references to Ward, and miscellaneous manuscripts. The clippings are primarily about Ward's death (these folders also contain clippings about an accident just prior to his death, funeral services, and the filing of his will), his honorary degrees, and the Ward Memorial dedication ceremony. The documents relate to Ward's business and financial matters and the Ward Memorial dedication. The ephemera feature an engineers' notebook belonging to Squire Whipple, who was famous for his iron bridge work, various items related to Ward's honorary degree from Oberlin College, guest lists for the Ward Memorial dedication, and seven miscellaneous photographs. There is also an oversize scrapbook containing various clippings, manuscripts, correspondence, documents, and photographs related to Ward's engineering work.
