Collection Summary

Abstract

This collection consists of the papers of John A. Andrew, prominent anti-slavery lawyer and Civil War governor of Massachusetts, and includes correspondence, scrapbooks, and miscellaneous records, as well as some papers of Andrew's wife, Eliza Jones Hersey Andrew, and his son, John Forrester Andrew.

Biographical Sketch

John Albion Andrew (1818-1867) was a prominent anti-slavery lawyer and Civil War governor of Massachusetts. A native of Windham, Maine, Andrew graduated from Bowdoin College in 1837 and began the practice of law in Boston in 1840. He became active in antebellum reform movements, speaking out strongly in favor of temperance and against slavery, and joined fellow attorneys Richard Henry Dana, Jr. (1815-1882) and Charles Sumner (1811-1874) in fugitive slave litigation. Politically, Andrew was one of the organizers of the anti-slavery Free Soil Party and later helped in the formation of the Republican Party of Massachusetts. Elected overwhelmingly to five one-year terms between 1861 and 1866, the popular Governor Andrew was a leader among the chief executives of northern states in furthering the Union cause during the Civil War. A stalwart supporter of President Abraham Lincoln and his policies, Andrew was in the forefront of vigorous efforts to raise funds and gather troops for the war against the Confederacy. He also advocated the emancipation of slaves at an early date and lobbied successfully for the creation of the first all-black Union regiment, the 54th Massachusetts.

Collection Description

The papers of John A. Andrew, 1772-1895, consist of 25 boxes of loose manuscripts and 16 bound volumes of letterbooks, scrapbooks, and miscellaneous records, microfilmed onto 43 reels. The collection contains a small amount of material on Andrew's antebellum activities on behalf of the anti-slavery and temperance causes; fugitive slave cases; the operations of the New England Emigrant Aid Company, which promoted anti-slavery settlements in Kansas, 1854-1857; and family and personal business matters after 1865. However, the bulk of the collection relates to Andrew's governorship, 1861-1866. Areas especially well documented are: Republican affairs in Massachusetts and the nation, including party nominations, elections, patronage, and Andrew's contributions to the war effort; the recruitment and provisioning of troops; and military appointments and promotions. Correspondence with Francis W. Bird, George S. Boutwell, Charles Sumner, and Henry Wilson relates to Republican Party matters. Letters to and from Albert C. Browne, Jr., George H. Gordon, Henry Lee, Jr., George Gordon Meade, and Horace Binney Sargent discuss the military situation in the field. Among the other important correspondents represented in the collection are: Charles Francis Adams, Nathaniel P. Banks, Maria Weston Chapman, James Freeman Clarke, Richard Henry Dana, Jr., Edward Everett, William Lloyd Garrison, Horace Greeley, Edward Everett Hale, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Julia Ward Howe, Abraham Lincoln, William H. Seward, and Edwin M. Stanton.
