Abstract

This collection consists of the papers of Nathan Appleton (1779-1861), merchant, manufacturer, banker, and congressman; his sons, Thomas Gold Appleton (1812-1884) and Nathan Appleton, Jr. (1843-1906); and other family members.

Biographical Sketch

Nathan Appleton

Born in New Ipswich, New Hampshire, on October 6, 1779, Nathan Appleton was the seventh son of Isaac Appleton, a wealthy New Hampshire farmer, and Mary Adams Appleton, a native of Concord, Massachusetts. Though he passed entrance examinations for Dartmouth College, young Appleton elected to forsake higher education and join his older brother Samuel in the mercantile business in Boston.

Beginning as a bookkeeper in 1794, Nathan became a full partner in S. & N. Appleton Company in 1800 and thereafter was the firm's dominant influence. He focused Appleton trade toward England and devised a strategy by which one brother based in Boston and the other in Liverpool could keep close track of transatlantic operations. As a result of his ingenuity and flexibility, the company flourished despite disruptions caused by the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. Buoyed by his success, Nathan organized a number of new partnerships after 1809 with other Boston traders and Appleton family members, most notably his younger brother Eben and cousin William.

After the War of 1812, with trade conditions uncertain, he took the plunge into the relatively new field of cotton textile manufacturing. Appleton invested heavily in the power mill of Francis Cabot Lowell in Waltham, Massachusetts. With a resourceful group of associates, including Lowell, his nephew John A. Lowell, John W. Boott, Kirk Boott, and Patrick Tracy Jackson, he developed financing and marketing techniques which became models for the textile industry. Appleton's special contribution was the textile sales agency, a specialized company that created marketing outlets through which the cloth produced could be sold and which provided working capital that could be used to expand the fledgling textile operations. By the time of his death in 1861, Nathan Appleton had invested $800,000 in over thirty separate firms.

A director of most of the important New England banks and a prolific author of articles, letters to the editor, and pamphlets, Appleton became a natural spokesman for his region's economic elite on national financial matters. Though he supported Nicholas Biddle, the principal director of the Bank of the United States in his 1833 struggle with President Andrew Jackson, Appleton became a severe critic of what he viewed as the highhanded and unorthodox methods of Biddle over the next eight years and opposed the proposal of Henry Clay for a new Bank charter. In a highly acclaimed pamphlet, Remarks on Currency and Banking (1841), he advocated a smaller, less centralized national financial institution in which power could not be concentrated in the hands of a single individual.

In 1830, the ubiquitous Nathan Appleton entered national politics. After having served six terms as a Massachusetts state legislator, he sought and won a congressional seat, defeating merchant and free trader Henry Lee in a spirited contest. As the representative of the manufacturing element in the 24th Congress, Appleton was called upon to design the high tariff of 1832. He advanced the merits of his tariff in a series of articles in the Philadelphia Banner of the Constitution and engaged in a celebrated debate over the issue with Representative George McDuffie of South Carolina on the floor of the House. Always uncomfortable in the political world, Appleton left Congress after a single term to attend to his ailing wife, Maria Theresa Gold Appleton (who died in 1833), and his myriad business and philanthropic interests. He returned to Congress briefly in 1842, serving out the last three months of the term of Robert C. Winthrop, who had resigned.

In his last years, Appleton continued to follow political and economic developments closely and spoke out regularly. As a conservative nationalist in the 1850s, he stood firmly against antislavery agitation and called upon his southern friends to recognize the commonality of interest with the north and abandon talk of secession. His 17-page Letter to the Hon. William C. Rives of Virginia, on Slavery and the Union (1860) masterfully stated the nationalist creed and was his last major writing. Appleton died at 82 on July 14, 1861, some three months after the firing on Fort Sumter had begun the Civil War.

Thomas Gold Appleton

Thomas Gold Appleton was born in Boston on March 31, 1812. The son of Nathan Appleton and Maria Theresa Gold Appleton of Pittsfield, Massachusetts, he attended the Round Hill School conducted by George Bancroft and Joseph Cogswell in Northampton, Massachusetts, and graduated from Harvard in the class of 1831.

Deeming himself ill-fitted for the business world of his father, the younger Appleton became a leading member of the artistic and literary salons of Boston and the capitals of Europe. A friend of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Oliver Wendell Holmes, John Lothrop Motley, and Wendell Phillips, he tried painting and wrote essays and poetry with modest success. Among his more notable literary efforts are Faded Leaves (1872), a book of poems; A Sheaf of Papers (1875), a collection of essays; and A Nile Journal (1876), the record of one of his many trips. Appleton was probably best known, however, as a bon vivant and wit. As such, he was, according to Holmes, the "favorite guest of every banquet." Thomas Gold Appleton died in New York on April 17, 1884.

Nathan Appleton, Jr.

Nathan Appleton, Jr., was born in Boston on February 2, 1843, the son of Nathan Appleton and his second wife, Harriot Coffin Sumner Appleton. He graduated from Harvard in 1863 and went off to serve in the Civil War as a second lieutenant with the Fifth Massachusetts Battery. He fought at Rappahannock Station, the Wilderness, Mine Run, and Spotsylvania, where he was wounded in the right arm, and was present at the Battle of Five Forks and Lee's surrender at Appomattox.

After the war, the scion of wealth traveled widely and dabbled unsuccessfully in banking and the cotton business. He was an indefatigable joiner of organizations and promoter of causes from the prevention of cruelty to animals to the establishment of an American empire in the Caribbean and the Pacific. For a time he was even employed as an unpaid agent for French engineer and entrepreneur Ferdinand de Lesseps, who, like Appleton, was interested in building a canal through the Isthmus of Panama. Appleton died in Boston on August 25, 1906.

Collection Description

The Appleton family papers consist of twenty archival boxes of loose manuscripts; 93 bound volumes of journals, letterbooks, and scrapbooks; and three oversize folders of legal documents and genealogical materials. The collection contains chiefly the personal papers of Nathan Appleton (1779-1861), a prominent Boston merchant, manufacturer, banker, and congressman, and the papers of his sons, Thomas Gold Appleton (1812-1884), an artist and poet, and Nathan Appleton, Jr. (1843-1906), a Civil War officer and businessman. Other members of the Appleton family and the related Armistead and Coffin families represented in the collection are: Nathaniel Appleton (1731-1798), Samuel Appleton (1766-1853), Moses Appleton (1773-1849), Eben Appleton (1784-1823), William Appleton (1786-1862), Harriot Coffin Sumner Appleton (1802-1867), Moses Larke Appleton (1811-1859), William Sumner Appleton (1840-1903), William Sumner Appleton, Jr. (1874-1947), Georgiana Louisa Frances Armistead Appleton, and Francis Coffin.

Nathan Appleton's papers concern trade with England, the textile industry, and national politics. They contain information on the War of 1812, Appleton's position in favor of slavery, antebellum tariff legislation in Congress, and Whig Party politics. Major correspondents include Nicholas Biddle (1786-1844), Abbott Lawrence (1792-1855), William Cabell Rives (1793-1868), Charles Sumner (1811-1874), and Daniel Webster (1782-1852).

The papers of artist and poet Thomas G. Appleton contain descriptions of his early days at Round Hill School, his travels in Europe, and Boston social life. The papers of Nathan Appleton, Jr., concern his service in the Fifth Battery of the Massachusetts Light Artillery during the Civil War, his business dealings, his promotion of American imperialism, and the plans of Ferdinand de Lesseps (1805-1894) for a Panama Canal.

Also included in the collection is the 1820-1825 diary of Isaac Foster Coffin (1787-1861) describing the political upheaval and revolution in Chile.

The Appleton family papers are arranged into three series: I. Loose manuscripts, II. Bound volumes, and III. Oversize material. Series I, Loose manuscripts, is further divided into eight subseries. The first subseries consists of Boxes 1-11 and contains general Appleton family correspondence and legal documents.

This material is arranged alphabetically by person, with miscellaneous loose manuscripts and Appleton family photographs at the end. Series II, Bound volumes, has also been arranged by individual family member. Series III consists of miscellaneous oversize documents.

Detailed Description of the Collection

I. Loose manuscripts, 1539-1941

This series is divided into eight subseries: A. General correspondence; B. Nathan Appleton papers; C. Nathan Appleton, Jr., papers; D. Samuel Appleton papers; E. Thomas Gold Appleton papers; F. William Appleton papers; G. William Sumner Appleton papers; and H. Miscellany. For a select index of individuals, events, organizations, and subjects of historical significance appearing in this series, see Select Index to Boxes 1-19 below.

A. General correspondence, 1539-1941

This subseries consists of general Appleton family correspondence and legal documents. Boxes 1 and 2 contain an assortment of letters and documents, the most important of which are the receipts and records of Nathaniel Appleton, Continental (later United States) Loan Officer for Massachusetts, ca. 1778-1798.

Boxes 2-9 contain the incoming and outgoing correspondence of Nathan Appleton. The letters to his brothers Samuel and Eben in Boxes 2 and 3 are especially important for Nathan's trading practices and depict his consummate skill in avoiding the blockades and embargo restrictions during the perilous period of the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. Boxes 3-6 are principally concerned with Appleton's role in manufacturing. Letters to and from Kirk Boott, John A. Lowell, and Timothy Wiggin discuss Appleton's business methods, and statistical reports in Boxes 3-9 demonstrate the state of Appleton investments and the textile industry in general.

Correspondence containing Appleton's economic and political views is scattered throughout but is primarily concentrated in Boxes 4-9. Important correspondents for economic matters are: Nicholas Biddle, Henry C. Carey, Thomas B. Curtis, Abbott Lawrence, and John A. Stevens. For Whig political matters, letters to and from Edward Everett, John G. Palfrey, Daniel Webster, and Robert C. Winthrop are significant. Appleton's correspondence with Charles Sumner (Box 6), to whom his second wife, Harriot, was related, contains the views of the two men on the diplomacy of Daniel Webster, the Mexican War, the annexation of Texas, slavery, and the Whig nomination of Zachary Taylor. Appleton's letters to and from southerners Henry W. Hilliard and William C. Rives articulate sectional questions in the period just prior to the Civil War. An interesting oddity in the collection is a group of letters to and from English Episcopal minister and theologian William E. Heygate discussing original sin, the trinity, and other religious matters, which were published as The Doctrines of Original Sin and the Trinity (1859). Other notable Nathan Appleton correspondents are: Charles Francis Adams, George Bancroft, William Ellery Channing, John J. Crittenden, Millard Fillmore, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (husband of Nathan's daughter Fanny), Thomas H. Perkins, Josiah Quincy, Theodore Sedgwick, and George Ticknor.

This subseries also contains a considerable amount of the correspondence of Thomas Gold Appleton and Nathan Appleton, Jr. The letters of Thomas Gold Appleton are almost exclusively to and from family members and are interspersed throughout Boxes 3-11. The most important correspondence is with his father, Nathan Appleton, 1824-1861. In it are vivid descriptions of the Round Hill School, Harvard, the social life of Boston, and the many countries the younger Appleton visited. Particularly interesting are Appleton's discussions of his aristocratic hosts in England and mainland Europe and of French politics in the age of Napoleon III.

The letters of Nathan Appleton, Jr., are concentrated in Boxes 9-11. They consist of a small amount of correspondence from Appleton's childhood, a significant body of letters from his Civil War service, and a collection of primarily incoming correspondence dealing with his business ventures and organizational interests and the drive for an American empire in the 1880s and 1890s.

Civil War letters to Appleton's mother, Harriot Coffin Sumner Appleton, and his sister, Harriot ("Hattie") Appleton, 1863-1865, are located in Box 9, Folders 5-8, and provide detail on the activities of the Fifth Massachusetts Battery, as well as the wounded Appleton's convalescence in Europe. Also included is a 6-page Appleton article on the Battle of Five Forks (9.8). Business correspondence with Charles Bowles in Boxes 10 and 11 concerns the operations of Bowles Brothers & Company, an international banking concern based in Paris, and reveals the workings of high finance in the 1870s and 1880s. Letters in Box 11 from Cuba revolutionary J. Monzon Aguirre, Admiral George E. Belknap, Ferdinand de Lesseps (in French), George Frisbie Hoar, Henry Cabot Lodge, and John Davis Long indicate Appleton's interest in American expansionism and the related construction of an isthmian canal through Panama.

This subseries also contains some letters from Appleton relative Francis Coffin (Boxes 2-3) to Salem merchant John Derby regarding trade conditions in Europe and China, 1804-1816. Correspondence between Georgiana Louisa Frances Armistead Appleton and Captain George H. Preble, 1873-1876 (10.6-10), discusses her father, George Armistead, and his heroism in rescuing the American flag at the Battle of Fort McHenry in 1815.
