Abstract:

Consists of papers of George Grundy Dunn, lawyer and congressman of Bedford, Indiana.

The papers in this collection consist of both personal and legal correspondence. Legal correspondence concerns cases ranging from property suits to murder. Several letters and documents deal with the extension of the New Albany and Salem Railroad through Bedford under the direction of Doolittle and Chamberlain, contractors from Cincinnati.

Another group of letters reflect Indiana political activity, particularly in the early 1850's. Included in the collection are two prayers by Daniel Waldo, Chaplin of the House of Representatives, 1856; an address delivered by Dunn to the Philomathean society, 1833; patriotic speech on George Washington's birthday; several compositions by Dunn, 1831, 1832; and two letters on the death of Andrew Wylie, 1851.
