Collection Summary

Abstract

This collection contains photographs of and collected by historian and United States Senator Henry Cabot Lodge (1850-1924) that depict his family, friends, and colleagues, as well as his personal life, travels, and political work.

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 photographs contains 2,059 photographs in 2 boxes, 2 oversize boxes, and 11 volumes collected by Henry Cabot Lodge. These photographs span the years ca. 1860-1945 and consist of loose photographs and photographs in volumes.

Most of the photographs in this collection are arranged in volumes. One volume is a scrapbook dating from 1867-1868 that contains photographs, papers, and other memorabilia relating to Henry Cabot Lodge's studies at Harvard University as a member of the Class of 1871. Six volumes contain commercial photographs of various places in Europe, collected by Lodge during his travels there from 1871-1903, including during his honeymoon with Anna Cabot Mills Davis Lodge in 1871-1872. Three additional volumes contain commercial photographs of European artwork, also collected by Lodge during his travels ca. 1872-1899. There is also one volume of photographs of San Francisco, compiled ca. 1910-1911 by the Panama-Pacific International Exposition Co. during its campaign for the exposition.

The rest of the collection contains loose photographs, some oversize, that depict or relate to Lodge's personal life; family, friends, and colleagues; and political work as U.S. senator. Portraits include formal and informal photographs of Henry Cabot Lodge, Anna Cabot Mills Davis Lodge, Constance Davis Lodge Gardner, George Cabot Lodge, and John Ellerton Lodge; presidents Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and other Massachusetts and U.S. legislators; various American and European statesmen, authors, and other public figures from the 1860s; and Civil War soldiers and officers. The collection also contains views of various places in Canada and the United States of importance to Lodge, including Nahant, Mass. and the Lodge family home in Washington, D.C.
