Introduction

How and Why the National Society, Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America financed the restoration of this complete collection

 

 

The women's National Society, Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America, organized in Washington, D.C., where its Charter was granted in June, 1898, has had as its chief objective the preservation of the history of Colonial and Revolutionary times by restoring old records.

The Maryland State Chapter, D.F.P.A. started its steady support of restoring records at the Maryland Historical Society soon after its beginning in 1908.

On October 9, 1946, Mrs. J. Edward Duker, newly elected President for the 1946-1949 term, held her first board meeting at the Maryland Historical Society. She expected the director, Mr. James W. Foster to give his usual suggestions for our State restoration project in keeping with our modest budget. He entered the room carrying a few old parchments. Ladies, he said, these are some of the Calvert Papers which have been in our possession since 1888. Historians and research workers would find them invaluable, but in their present condition, we dare not permit them to be handled. To us they are more precious than gold and their restoration must be accomplished in the safest possible way. We have waited all these years hoping that some philanthropist would pay to restore the entire collection of some 1300 papers and maps. So far no one has offered to do so. Today, I decided that your Society as our friend for many years should hear the story of these Calvert Papers. Then, if you wish, you may restore two or three of them each year. It may be that other societies will join you, and eventually we shall be able to make these priceless documents available to scholars.

Mr. Foster then gave a brief background sketch of the Calverts as Lords Proprietors of Maryland. Whether here as Governors in person, or represented by agents in absentia, they maintained, for a period of 144 years, an overseas exchange of orders, official documents, and private letters dealing with every phase of colonial life. Many of these original papers are duplicates of Maryland records lost when our State House was burned. To illustrate the unique quality of these records, Mr. Foster showed us the original receipt for the first two arrows which Maryland was required to pay as an annual tribute to King Charles I, and the false map with which William Penn outwitted Charles Calvert, our fifth Lord Baltimore. All of these papers, so valuable to American history, came into the possession of Henry Harford, the illegitimate son of the last Lord Baltimore. How they were lost in England and then recovered in 1886 made a fascinating story. When Mrs. Duker told Mr. Foster that she expected to attend A National board meeting in Washington and that possibly that society might contribute some money from their Record Fund, he offered to give her a letter outlining the work needed to restore the papers and an estimate of the cost. Our board members voted to restore several of the papers for our Maryland project.

On October 18, 1946, Mrs. Duker, as president of the Maryland Chapter, attended her first National board meeting held at National headquarters in Washington. The new president, Mrs. Edmund Burke Ball presided. Also present were several honorary National presidents, the new National officers and the Presidents or vice-Presidents of thirty-eight states.

Mrs. Llewellyn N. Edwards, chairman of the Executive Committee announced that May, 1948 would complete the 50th year of our society, and requested suggestions for a suitable restoration project of general interest to mark that anniversary. Several small projects were mentioned. When called upon as State president, Mrs. Duker reported that the Maryland Chapter had just had presented to them a wonderful restoration project that she thought would bring honor to our National Society if chosen for its 50th Anniversary project. Still inspired by Mr. Foster's story, Mrs. Duker then launched into a most enthusiastic account of the Calvert Papers; dilating on their historic value not only to Maryland but to all of the original colonies and describing their mysterious disappearance and subsequent rediscovery. The interest aroused in all the board members, especially that of the honorary presidents and the National chairman of Records, Mrs. J. Wendall Kimball of New Hampshire, led Mrs. Kimball to request that Mrs. Duker send to her and to Mrs. Ball a written description of the Calvert Papers and the account of their recovery.

At the next meeting of the National board, January, 1947, Mrs. Ball reported that the Records Committee had received confirmation from Miss Bessie Porter, their consultant on restoration work of the importance of these papers for purposes of historical research. At their request, Mr. Foster gave them further details as to cost and methods of restoration. The committee then decided that the restoration of the Calvert Papers was not only a suitable project but would enable the Society to add a final chapter to the story of these papers by restoring them so that they could be safely removed from the dark recesses of the archives to shed light on the early life of the Maryland colony. The report of the committee was discussed, after which the board unanimously voted that the National Society, as a 50th Anniversary Project, restore the Calvert Papers in the possession of the Maryland Historical Society at a cost not to exceed $5000. and to leave the method to the judgment of that Society. The secretary was ordered to notify Mr. Foster. The board also voted to ask all other societies to hold off and let the N.S.D.F.P.A. finish the whole restoration. Mrs. Ball stated that a letter giving the plan for subscribing to the Anniversary Project together with a mimeographed copy of Mrs. Duker's account of the Calvert Papers would be sent to each state.

The 49th annual meeting, the Society's General Court was held in May, 1947 at the Hotel Statler. After hearing the report of the National board, the members of the National Society voted to accept the board's recommendation that their 50th Anniversary Project be the restoration of the Calvert Papers. Mrs. J. Wendall Kimball, National Records chairman explained that $5000. was the estimated amount needed. She urged chapters and members to send their contributions so that the entire amount would be in hand by the 50th General Court the following year. Since Mrs. Duker, Maryland President had presented this project, she was asked to read a paper she had written telling who the Calverts were, what their Papers contained, and why they were so important in the field of historical research. Mrs. Kimball told the delegates that she would send to each state information concerning her plan to raise the money, also, that those members not present might become familiar with the Anniversary Project, she would include a copy of Mrs. Duker's article.

In several talks to our Maryland Chapter, Mr. Foster described at length the various ways of restoring old records and showed samples of the silk crepeline, imported from China, to be used on the Calvert Papers. Though expensive, restoration using this material was the oldest and safest method known. Our members became much interested in the old parchment maps. When Mr. Foster told of his society's need for a map case to hold the restored maps, they decided to give one. They voted $132. for a case that would hold 150 maps. On the map case is this inscription: June 17, 1948 - Presented to the Maryland Historical Society by the Maryland Society, D.F.P.A., to contain Calvert Parchments restored by the N.S.D.F.P.A. - as its 50th Anniversary Project. Mr. Foster expressed his society's great appreciation for the map case and gave us the Resolution of Thanks adopted by their Council on February 6, 1947.

The General Court of the National Society, D.F.P.A. was held in April, 1948 in the west ballroom of the Shoreham Hotel. In honor of our 50th Anniversary, it was a gala occasion. The outstanding news announced by our president, Mrs. Ball was that the sum of $5000. pledged for the restoration of the Calvert Papers was in hand. The actual work on the parchments, however, had been delayed. Difficulties in obtaining the silk crepeline from China due to the war had been resolved with the arrival of a large supply and the work could go forward. Mrs. Ball stated that hereafter, with Mrs. J. Wendall Kimball, chairman of Records in charge, the Fund for the Calvert Papers would be held in escrow by a Special Committee until the entire work of restoration was completed.

During the next three administrations of the National Society, D.F.P.A., the chairman of the Special Committee - The Restoration of the Calvert Papers reported each year that the work was steadily progressing. Mrs. Duker, elected first National Treasurer and then National Councilor attended the National board meetings during this period. Knowing that she was in constant touch with Mr. Foster and his work, the National presidents succeeding Mrs. Ball allowed her to answer the continual questions of the board members who complained of the delay in finishing the Anniversary Project.

Mr. Foster was much embarrassed that the work did not proceed faster. He had the Hall of Records in Annapolis prepare a few of the old parchment maps on their machines. For all of the other records he had but one worker at the Historical Society who knew the crepeline method and she worked only part time. Finally, in 1954, Miss Louise M. Gary of Baltimore completed the course in specialized crepeline technique at the Hall of Records, and Mr. Foster engaged her to spend her whole time to complete the Calvert Papers restoration. She proved an excellent worker.

At last, at the General Court held at the Shoreham in April, 1957, with the president, Miss Laura Clark Cook presiding, the chairman of the Special Committee, The Completion of the 50th Anniversary Project - Restoration of the Calvert Papers read a letter from Mr. Foster, Director of the Maryland Historical Society stating that the restoration of the entire collection of 1300 manuscripts was now completed. He expressed the great appreciation felt by the Historical Society's Council for the fine gift from the National Society, D.F.P.A., which would be such a boon to future research scholars. He declared it the most important work of restoration yet to be undertaken by any patriotic society.
