The Hamilton family papers are divided into four series:

Series I First Two Generations centers around Allen Hamilton, the first member of the family to settle in America. Subseries A contains letters from Allen Hamilton's parents, Andrew Hamilton and Elizabeth (Allen) Hamilton, in Ireland. Subseries B includes the letters of Allen Hamilton and his wife Emerine Jane (Holman) Hamilton, the bulk of which are to their son, Andrew Holman Hamilton. Also included are school receipts for Allen Hamilton's ward and a copy of his will. Subseries C provides information on the family of Phoebe Ann Taber, Allen Hamilton's ward and later his daughter-in-law. This subseries contains letters between her grandparents, parents and other relatives.

Series II Children and Grandchildren of Allen and Emerine Hamilton is the major portion of the collection. The series is divided into five subseries, each representing a child of Allen and Emerine and his/her family. Subseries A consists of the correspondence of Andrew Holman Hamilton ("Holman"), a United States Congressman and businessman in Fort Wayne; his wife Phoebe Ann (Taber) Hamilton; their three daughters: Katherine, Jessie, and Agnes; and their sons: Allen, a physician, his wife Helen, and their son Andrew Holman; Taber, a businessman, his wife Abigail, and their children: William Rush Gillan, Taber, Jr., and Phoebe Taber. Much of the correspondence to Jessie and Agnes is from friends.

Subseries B includes the correspondence of Montgomery Hamilton, his wife Gertrude Corinne (Pond) Hamilton; their four daughters: Edith, Alice, Margaret, a teacher and headmistress at Bryn Mawr School, and Norah, an artist; their son Arthur ("Quint") Hamilton, an educator, and his wife Mary (Neal).

Subseries C, D, and E contain letters of the three remaining Hamilton daughters: Mary (Hamilton) Williams and her sons Allen Hamilton and Creighton; Margaret V. Hamilton; and Ellen (Hamilton) Wagenhals and her children.

Series III Other Correspondence and Miscellaneous Writings includes correspondence, writings, and a few drawings. Subseries A contains correspondence and fragments of letters to and from unidentified Hamilton family members; manuscript writings (a family story game, poetry, recipes, etc.); and drawings (mostly in pencil, undated and unsigned). Subseries B groups together other correspondence which is neither to nor from Hamilton family members.

Series IV Photographs brings together pictures of many members of the Hamilton family. Some photographs, mostly snapshots, are enclosed in letters; these have been noted in the Inventory. Other persons represented are more distant relatives, in-laws, and friends. Many of the photographs are identified; only some are dated. There are loose photographs, three photograph albums, and several daguerreotypes and ambrotypes. This material is shelved separately from the rest of MC 278 and is to be microfilmed with the photograph collection.

The Schlesinger Library has a collection of Alice Hamilton's professional papers (A-22), which also contains some family correspondence, as well as copies of many of her speeches, reports and writings. A microfilm copy (M-56) of the first three boxes is available for research use. Two letters of Edith Hamilton to Buckner Hollingsworth concerning her years at Bryn Mawr (A/H217) are also part of the Library's holdings. Alice and Edith Hamilton are also represented in other collections, both processed and unprocessed, to be found in the Library. Other Hamilton family papers that were originally part of this collection but that pertain to the business activities of its members have been deposited in the Indiana State Archives by William Rush Gillan Hamilton. Twenty-one letters and postcards of Jane Addams and Clara Landsberg have been placed at Hull-House (University of Illinois at Chicago Center).

In August 1987 Barbara Sicherman provided more precise dates for several of the Alice Hamilton letters. As a result, dates were recorded on letters in the following folders: #616, 621, 626, 629, 632, 648, and 656, and the following four items were moved to different folders: from #630 to 629: letter originally marked Oct.? 1893, now dated July 16, 1883; from #646 to 647: letter originally marked 11-4-31, now dated February 1933; from #660 to 634: fragment beginning "and this long trip..." now identified as pages 6 and 7 of letter dated August 10, 1897; and from #661 to 653: fragment beginning "had it. Miss Broadway and..." now identified as part of letter dated November 7, 1898.

BIOGRAPHY

Allen Hamilton came to America from the north of Ireland when he was eighteen years old (probably in 1818) and settled in the area that became Fort Wayne, Indiana. He traded with the Indians, opened a dry goods store, and eventually became a banker. In 1828 he married Emerine Jane Holman, the daughter of Jesse Lynch Holman and Elizabeth (Masterson) Holman. They had eleven children; the five surviving ones are represented in this collection. His own lack of education made him ambitious for his children: the sons attended American colleges and German universities; the daughters were sent to Miss Porter's School in Farmington, Connecticut. The family was an extremely close-knit one; the two sons built homes near their father's and the grandchildren were raised together almost exclusive of outside friendships.

The papers of the Hamilton family consist mainly of correspondence, with numerous photographs and a small quantity of writings and drawings. The correspondence documents the relationships among members of five generations for over one-hundred and fifty years. The majority of the correspondents are women. The letters provide information on the relationships of mothers and daughters, mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law, sisters and cousins, and also those of husbands and wives, fathers and daughters, brothers and sisters, grandparents and grandchildren.

The most prominent of these relationships can be found in the correspondence of Jessie and Agnes Hamilton (sisters), Edith and Jessie Hamilton (cousins), and Alice and Agnes Hamilton (cousins). These women were born in the 1860s, brought up in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and educated at Miss Porter's School. The earliest letters date from 1878, but the bulk of the correspondence was written between the 1880's and the 1930's. These letters detail day-to-day life at the Hamilton compound in Fort Wayne, at Miss Porter's School, and later in the various careers these women followed.

The most complete group of letters is the one between Jessie and Agnes. Jessie Hamilton (1866-1960), an etcher and painter in oils, was instrumental in founding the Fort Wayne Art School. Her younger sister Agnes (1868-1971) was a settlement house worker. Agnes was long identified with settlement work in Philadelphia and was on the executive committee of The Lighthouse there. Family data in the correspondence are supplemented by Agnes' diary, which details family life during her childhood and continues through her school years at Miss Porter's.

The letters of Jessie and Agnes to their cousins Edith and Alice are less complete; however, many letters from Edith and Alice are extant. Edith (1867-1963), a Bryn Mawr College graduate and one of the first women admitted to study at the University of Munich, was headmistrees of Bryn Mawr School (1896-1922) and later a classicist. As the author and translator of numerous books (notably The Greek Way), she has been credited with arousing among general readers an interest in classical and Biblical life and literature. Alice (1869-1970), whose career in industrial toxicology and medicine is documented in professional papers she placed at the Schlesinger Library in 1953, recorded in her letters personal observations on such diverse subjects as Hull-House, factory conditions, and teaching at Harvard Medical School, where in 1919 she became the first woman professor.

The correspondence (series I and II) is arranged by generation, and is followed by miscellaneous papers (series III) and photographs (series IV The arrangement was begun by researchers using the as yet unprocessed correspondence; they established the division by generation, with letters organized by writer. Incomplete letters that could be dated have been filed with other dated correspondence, and to a limited degree parts of letters have been re-united. Letters written through 1899 and undated letters have been counted. Only letters written to Hamilton family members by non-members (this includes some distant relatives) have been indexed (see pp. 35-40). Researchers should be aware that family members often wrote letters addressed to more than one person.
