Collection Summary

Abstract

This collection consists of the personal, official, and family papers of historian and United States Senator Henry Cabot Lodge (1850-1924) spanning the years 1775-1966. Subjects covered include Republican Party politics in Massachusetts and the nation, 1870-1924, and American foreign policy, 1890-1924.

Biographical Sketch

Henry Cabot Lodge (1850-1924) was a historian and U.S. senator, the son of John Ellerton Lodge (b. 1807) and Anna Cabot (1821-1900). He graduated from Harvard in 1871 and, later that year, married Anna "Nannie" Cabot Mills Davis (1850-1915). The couple had three children: Constance Davis Lodge (b. 1872), who married Augustus Peabody Gardner (d. 1918) in 1891; George "Bay" Cabot Lodge (1873-1909), a poet who married Mathilda Elizabeth Frelinghuysen Davis (1876-1960) in 1900 and had two sons who became involved with United States politics, senator and diplomat Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. (1902-1985) and ambassador John Davis Lodge (1903-1985); and John Ellerton Lodge (1876-1942) , who married Mary Connolly. The Lodge family made their homes in Nahant, Mass. and Washington, D.C.

After his marriage to Nannie Davis and their subsequent honeymoon travels in Europe during 1871-1872, Henry Cabot Lodge was editor of the North American Review from 1873-1876. He graduated from the Harvard Law School in 1874 and, in 1876, earned one of the first Ph.D. degrees in history and government given by Harvard University. From 1876-1879, Lodge was a lecturer on American history at Harvard. He was subsequently elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 1880, a position he kept until 1881. After many unsuccessful campaigns, Lodge was elected as a Republican U.S. Representative from Massachusetts in 1887, and he served in that capacity until 1893, when he was elected to the U.S. Senate. He remained a senator until his death in 1924.

Collection Description

The Henry Cabot Lodge papers span the years 1775-1966 and consist of 183 microfilm reels (P-525) of materials of Henry Cabot Lodge (1850-1924), historian, Congressman and United States Senator. The Lodge papers are arranged in roughly the order in which they were received from Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. All artifacts, printed materials, and photographs have been removed from the collection. The collection has been divided into six series, described below.

Series I contains the major body of H. C. Lodge correspondence, 1866-1966, arranged chronologically and alphabetically within years on 94 reels. Though largely consisting of Lodge's incoming correspondence, this series also contains a significant number of original Lodge letters. The letters span Lodge's years as a Harvard student and instructor, North American Review editor, Massachusetts legislator, Congressman, United States Senator, and Republican Party leader. Included are letters to and from nearly every important literary and political figure at home and abroad, 1871-1924. Among the more prominent correspondents are Brooks Adams, Henry Adams, George Bancroft, Albert J. Beveridge, James G. Blaine, William E. Borah, James Bryce, Calvin Coolidge, Richard Henry Dana, Jr., Charles W. Eliot, Moreton Frewen, Warren G. Harding, John Hay, George Frisbie Hoar, Charles Evans Hughes, Rudyard Kipling, William McKinley, Thomas B. Reed, Carl Schurz, Cecil Spring-Rice, Charles Sumner, William Howard Taft, George Otto Trevelyan and Henry White. Reel 94 contains typescripts of letters of Brooks Adams, Charles Francis Adams II and Henry Adams, 1891-1918 and copies of Lodge correspondence with Houghton Mifflin, 1879-1942.

Series II, reels 95-108, contains family correspondence, 1775-1925, and is organized chronologically for each individual. Included are most of Lodge's letters to and from his mother, Anna Cabot Lodge, 1866-1900; some correspondence of his wife, Anna Cabot Mills Davis Lodge; his son, John Ellerton Lodge Jr.; other Lodge family members; and members of the Blake, Cabot, Davis, Ellerton and Mills families. In addition, there is some Lodge genealogical material and condolence correspondence upon the deaths of Lodge's mother, wife, and son, George Cabot Lodge. (The Society has a separate collection of George Cabot Lodge papers.)

Series III, Miscellaneous Papers, arranged by names and subjects, reels 109-115, contains Lodge's correspondence with select individuals including Worthington C. Ford, Lewis Harcourt, Ellerton James, Henry Lee, Herbert St. George Mildmay, Corinne Roosevelt Robinson, and Barrett Wendell, 1876-1924. Also included are copies of letters of John Lothrop Motley and Charles Sumner, 1835-1877 (reel 97); notes and correspondence concerning Colombian-American relations and the Panama Canal, 1903-1921 (reel 113); the Washington Conference on the Limitation of Armament, 1921-1922 (reel 114), and Lodge business papers (reel 115).

Series IV, writings and speeches, etc., reels 116-126, contains primarily original writings and speeches of Lodge. The writings and speeches included on reels 116-120 are largely unorganized and undated. Reels 121-125 are arranged in alphabetical order by title or topic. In addition, this part of the collection has a small collection of Lodge's student notes on history, science, and law, and copies of many of his published articles and reviews.

Series V, Bound Volumes, reels 127-183, contains diaries, journals, letterbooks, notebooks and scrapbooks of George Cabot (1752-1823), Anna Sophia Cabot (1796-1845), Anna Cabot Lodge (1821-1900), Henry Cabot Lodge (1850-1924), the Republican District Committee of the Fifth Congressional District, Cecil Spring-Rice, Mrs. L. A. Ward, E. C. Kirkland, and Henry Cabot and are arranged chronologically within each of the nine sub-series. The volumes of Anna Sophia Cabot and Anna Cabot Lodge are primarily European travel journals; those of George Cabot are letterbooks, 1783-1818. The bulk of the collection consists of the diaries, letterbooks, historical notebooks, and political scrapbooks of Henry Cabot Lodge. Because of the easy access to printed material in libraries, only the title page or first page of printed materials in the scrapbooks was microfilmed. Due to their deteriorating condition, the scrapbooks of Henry Cabot Lodge consisting primarily of newspaper clippings were discarded after filming. Annotated printed material contained in the scrapbooks was removed from the scrapbook before the volume was discarded. See curator of manuscripts for further information.

Series VI, Oversize, 1893-1924, (reel 183) consists of miscellaneous oversized materials, mainly graphics. These are stored in Oversize box 1 (onsite). Also located in this box is Volume 111, an oversize scrapbook. These materials are on microfilm P-525. There are some other miscellaneous oversize papers, mainly certificates and diplomas, which do not appear on the microfilm. These are located in Oversize box 2. Oversize boxes are stored onsite at H.C. Lodge Oversize. To access the oversize materials in box 2, which are not on the microfilm, please see the Curator of Manuscripts.
