Biographical Sketch

Rockwood Hoar

Rockwood Hoar (1855-1906) was born in Worcester, Mass., the son of George Frisbie Hoar (1826-1904) and Mary Louisa Spurr (d. 1859). Rockwood Hoar had one sister, Mary Hoar. In 1862, his father George F. Hoar married (2nd) Ruth Ann Miller (d. 1903). After attending the Worcester public schools, Rockwood Hoar graduated from Harvard with an A.B. in 1876 and an L.L.B. in 1878. Admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in 1879, he commenced practice in his father's Worcester law office.

Rockwood Hoar was a member of Company C, Fifth Massachusetts Infantry, 1875-1879; an assistant to the district attorney for the middle district (Worcester County) of Massachusetts, 1884-1887; a member of the common council of Worcester, 1887-1891; aide-de-camp with rank of colonel on the staff of Governor Oliver Ames, 1887-1890; and judge advocate general with the rank of brigadier general on the staff of Governor Roger Wolcott, 1897-1900. In 1898 he was elected district attorney for Worcester County and served from Jan. 1899 until his election as a Republican to the Fifty-ninth U.S. Congress in 1904, serving only one term from Jan. 1905 until his death on Nov. 1, 1906. In addition, Rockwood Hoar was a trustee of Clark University in Worcester and the Worcester Insane Hospital, and a director of the Washburn and Moen Manufacturing Company.

In 1893, he married Christine Rice (b. 1872), the daughter of William Rice of Worcester. The couple had two daughters: Frances Helen (b. 1895) and Louisa Ruth (b. 1898). After Rockwood Hoar's untimely death in 1906, his widow maintained their home in Washington, D.C., and divided her time between there and Worcester. In 1915, Christine Rice Hoar married Frederick Gillett (1851-1935), politician and speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.

For more insight into the character of Rockwood Hoar, see the reminiscences by Alexander H. Bullock in carton 7, biographical file at the end of the correspondence and personal papers series (Series I).

Frances Helen Hoar Foster and Louisa Ruth Hoar LaFarge

Frances Helen Hoar, Rockwood Hoar's elder daughter, was born in Worcester in 1895. She made her debut in 1912 and married Reginald Candler Foster of Needham, Mass., in 1921. The couple had three children: Rockwood (b. 1923), Charles Henry Wheelwright (b. 1927), and Hugh Kindersley (b. 1928). Louisa Ruth Hoar was born in Worcester in 1898 and made her debut in 1915. In 1923, she married Christopher LaFarge, grandson of the artist John LaFarge and son of C. Grant LaFarge. Louisa died in 1945.

Collection Description

The collection consists of 24 cartons with one oversize volume containing correspondence and personal papers, legal papers, financial papers, and bound volumes primarily generated by Rockwood Hoar, lawyer, district attorney, and member of the 59th U.S. Congress. There are also papers of his wife Christine Rice Hoar Gillett, his daughters Frances Helen Hoar Foster and Louisa Ruth Hoar LaFarge, Frances's husband Reginald C. Foster, and the Randlett family.

The Correspondence and Personal Papers series (1862-1949) in 12 cartons is divided into four sections, the bulk generated by Rockwood Hoar (cartons 1-7). Christine Rice Hoar Gillett's correspondence, 1888-1929 and 1949, is in cartons 7-9; Frances Helen Hoar Foster's correspondence, 1905-1921, is in cartons 9-12; and Louisa Ruth Hoar LaFarge's correspondence, 1908-1923, is in carton 12. There are also 2 folders of miscellaneous programs, notes and lists generated by the three women in carton 12 at the end of the series.

The Legal Papers (1879-1906) consist of Rockwood Hoar's files arranged alphabetically by client name (5 cartons) with a few miscellaneous legal notes (2 folders) at the end of the series in carton 17.

The Financial Papers (cartons 17-20, 1835-1929) consist mainly of bills and receipts made out to Rockwood Hoar and Christine Rice Hoar Gillett, arranged alphabetically by business or individual's name. Within a particular name they are arranged chronologically. These papers include some bills and receipts of Christine Rice Hoar Gillett from 1929. At the end of the series there are 2 folders of unidentified financial items. Following that there are two folders of miscellaneous Randlett family papers, mostly financial in nature, with a few items of correspondence. The Randlett family had some connection to the Rice family, and Rockwood Hoar handled Hannah B. Randlett's financial and legal affairs until his death in 1906.

The Volumes (1876-1914) consist of a letterbook of Rockwood Hoar; address books of Christine Rice Hoar Gillett and Louisa Ruth Hoar LaFarge; legal briefs, casebooks, and legal financial record of Rockwood Hoar; account books of Rockwood Hoar, Christine Rice Hoar Gillett, and Hannah Randlett; diaries of Rockwood Hoar, Christine Rice Hoar Gillett, and Frances Helen Hoar Foster; and scrapbooks of Rockwood Hoar, Christine Rice Hoar Gillett, and Reginald C.

Acquisition Information

The Rockwood Hoar Papers were removed from the George Frisbie Hoar Papers, Dec. 2000. The George Frisbie Hoar Papers were a gift of the late Mrs. Reginald Foster of Needham, Mass.; Dr. C. Grant LaFarge of Brookline, Mass.; and Mr. W.E.R. LaFarge of New York, N.Y., some time before March 1963, when the acquisition was reported in the MHS Miscellany.

Detailed Description of the Collection

I. Correspondence and Personal Papers, 1862-1949

Much of the early material in Rockwood Hoar's correspondence (1862-1907) consists of family correspondence of a personal nature. After 1880, the correspondence contains much more material pertaining to his legal and political interests. While the legal files in the collection contain correspondence, much of his legal correspondence is interfiled in the general correspondence, if separate files were not established for a particular client or subject. Thus the correspondence reflects legal matters, Church of the Unity matters (Rockwood Hoar's church in Worcester), Clark University, the Worcester Insane Hospital, and other interests; local Republican politics and his appointment as judge advocate general under Gov. Wolcott; his run for district attorney and campaign for Congress; and his father's personal and financial situations, as well as those of other family members. The family correspondence also reflects the ownership of property around Worcester and the collection of rents and maintenance of these numerous holdings.

The correspondence increases considerably in late 1904 when Hoar was elected to Congress. Continual themes are requests for seed distributions, public documents, post office and civil service positions, and Panama Canal appointments; and letters regarding various bills in Congress, including the duty on hides, compulsory pilotage, forest reservation, railway rates, metric system, alcohol tax, federal criminal code, immigration, and the Congo Free State; and the Heyburn Pure Food, National Eight-Hour, and Beveridge bills, among others. Material dated after October 1906 concerns Rockwood Hoar's death.

Following Rockwood Hoar's correspondence are six folders of papers on the following subjects: biographical information on Rockwood Hoar, campaign materials, speeches and fragments of speeches, miscellaneous notes and writings, bills in the legislature, and miscellaneous printed matter.

See also Series IV, Bound Volumes for a letterbook of Rockwood Hoar for 1892-99 (vol. 1, Carton 20) and address books of Christine Rice Hoar Gillett and Louisa Ruth Hoar LaFarge. See volume list in Series IV description for details.

The correspondence of Christine Rice Hoar Gillett, 1888-1949, consists primarily of letters from family, friends, and social acquaintances. There are numerous invitations, acceptances, and regrets for social functions. See Series IV, Bound Volumes for three address books (Vols. 2-4), one of which was compiled for her wedding to Rockwood Hoar in 1893. Undated correspondence, 5 folders, consists mainly of invitations and responses to social events. There is no material for 1903-1904, 1911, 1916-1919, and nothing about her husband's death in 1906. There are no letters after 1929 until a 1949 invitation to an event at the White House.

Frances Helen Hoar Foster's correspondence (1905-21) reflects her school years and her debutante and post-debutante seasons (1912-1914), tapering off after 1914 and ending in 1921 shortly before her marriage to Reginald C. Foster. It is particularly illustrative of her debutante years, with a large number of invitations and responses for social occasions. Frances Helen Hoar Foster also maintained communications with a number of young men and women in her teenage years, and the letters are an interesting record of the social aspect of youth in the 1900s and 1910s. A large body of undated material mainly consists of invitations, calling cards, and greeting cards.

Louisa Ruth Hoar LaFarge's correspondence (1908-23) is brief and limited in large part to family letters with a few items from friends. Series IV, Bound Volumes, contains an address book probably kept by Louisa Ruth Hoar LaFarge, identified as volume 5.

At the end of the correspondence series there are two folders of miscellaneous programs, notes, and lists kept by Christine Rice Hoar Gillett, Frances Helen Hoar Foster, and Louisa Ruth Hoar LaFarge.

II. Legal Papers, 1879-1906

Rockwood Hoar's legal papers are arranged in files alphabetically. They are not all-encompassing; he had many clients for whom there are no files. Some files contain numerous items for the client or for a specific trial, while other files have only a few notes. Rockwood Hoar's legal practice was fairly wide-ranging, and included divorce cases, custody suits, wills and trusts, real-estate transactions, various types of law-suits, criminal defense, and business claims on unpaid bills and notes. Rockwood Hoar had a wide variety of clients both individual and corporate, including the Washburn & Moen Manufacturing Company, the First Parish Church of Worcester, the Central National Bank, Worcester Wire Company, Ephraim Mower family, Harriet and Isabel Paul, Hannah B. Randlett, and Senator J. D. Cameron, among others. Many of his clients were ethnic immigrants, including Jewish, Italian, Armenian, Chinese, Irish, Arab, and eastern European individuals. See the list of Alphabetical Legal Files for individual file names. While district attorney Rockwood Hoar prosecuted a number of murder suspects, as well as those involved in lesser crimes. There are a few files at the end of this series with miscellaneous legal notes.

Bound volumes 6-14 and 46 (see Series IV) pertain to Rockwood Hoar's legal career as well. The casebooks, volumes 8-11, contain great detail for some of Hoar's trials in those years covered: 1887, 1888, 1893, and 1897-98, with lists of witnesses, depositions, testimony, judges' decisions, and other notes. The briefs, volumes 6 and 7, contain printed briefs for trials 1882-1903, with annotations by Rockwood Hoar. Volume 46 (oversize) is a ledger, cashbook, and collection docket for 1881-1903, encompassing most of Rockwood Hoar's legal career. These volumes provide much information lacking in the alphabetical legal files. There are also two volumes containing by-laws and an act of incorporation for the "Sons of Abraham," a Jewish religious organization in Worcester, Mass. See volume list in Series IV description for more details.

III. Financial Papers, 1835-1929

The financial papers, mostly bills and receipts of Rockwood Hoar and Christine Rice Hoar Gillett, are arranged alphabetically by name of business or individual vendor, and within the particular name they are arranged chronologically. Most of the businesses are located in Worcester, with some in Boston, New York, Washington, and European cities. The bulk of the papers dates from around 1890 to 1906. There are some items from 1929 belonging to Christine Rice Hoar Gillett that have been interfiled alphabetically with the rest. At the end of the financial section there are two folders of Randlett family papers (1835-89), mostly financial papers, with a few items of correspondence.

Financial papers also include volumes 15-21 in Series IV, Bound Volumes. There are small account books of Rockwood Hoar for 1876-1881, bank books for 1903-1905, and check stubs for 1891-1900. There are also accounts for Christine Rice Hoar Gillett for 1893-1895, and stock accounts of family friend Hannah B. Randlett, 1893-1895. See volume list in Series IV description for more details.

IV. Bound Volumes, 1876-1914

The volumes are arranged as follows: volumes 1-5 correlate to the correspondence section and consist of a letterbook of Rockwood Hoar for 1892-99, three address books of Christine Rice Hoar Gillett, and one address book of Louisa Ruth Hoar LaFarge. Volumes 6-14 and 46 (oversize) relate to the legal papers and consist of printed briefs with annotations for 1882-1903; casebooks for 1887, 1888, 1893, and 1897-98; two volumes of incorporation for the Sons of Abraham, a Jewish congregation; a legal journal, 1895-1900, and a ledger/cashbook/collection docket for 1881-1903. Volumes 15-21 cover financial matters and consist of account books, bank books and check stubs of Rockwood Hoar; an account book of Christine Rice Hoar Gillett; and a stock account book of family friend Hannah B. Randlett.

Volumes 22-34 are diaries. There are three diaries of Rockwood Hoar (vols. 22-24: 1879, 1891, 1893), one of which he kept while on his honeymoon (1893). A four-volume diary (vols. 25-28) kept by Christine Rice Hoar Gillett as a teenager in Germany, 1885-87, is a very detailed and interesting record of almost two years spent abroad with two female family friends and another unrelated girl, mostly in the town of Cassel, Germany, where the two girls attended school as well as engaged private tutors for extra German and music lessons. The women and girls also traveled around the country during vacation breaks from school. Frances Helen Hoar Foster's engagement diaries for 1909-1914 (vols. 29-34) demonstrate how a young person of her family's standing was expected to involve herself socially both in Washington and in the Worcester and Boston debutante scenes. Volumes 35-45 are scrapbooks and miscellaneous volumes, consisting of two school notebooks of Rockwood Hoar, scrapbooks of Christine Rice Hoar Gillett and Rockwood Hoar, mostly of newspaper clippings, and a scrapbook of Reginald C. Foster (1941) for the Civilian Technical Corps. Foster was the New England Director of the Corps, which enlisted men for non-combatant technical duty in England.
