Descriptive Summary

REDWOOD COLLECTION--TRANSCRIPTS, (1766-1938)

MS 1530.1

Maryland Historical Society

Baltimore MD 21201-4674


Introduction

Papers in this collection belonged to Mrs. Francis T. Redwood, and consist of some of her personal letters; letters to George B. Coale and Charles Bradenbaugh; four loose-leaf binders of copied letters and records about her son, George B. Redwood; transcribed papers of the Hopkinson, Duche, Dorsey, Coale and other families; and copies of essays and poems.

Letters and papers (c.1916-1938) about Lt. George B. Redwood consist of four loose-leaft binders, indexed, containing typed copies of letters, abstracts of letters, diary abstracts, photographs, postcards and newspaper clippings concerning Redwood's school and military careers, death, and memorial tributes.

The transcribed family papers (1730-1906) were a product of Mrs. Redwood's genealogical and family history research. They consist of hand and typewritten copies of letters, pamphlets, poems, songs, essays, wills, estate papers and genealogical notes. The papers are mostly those of Hopkinson family members, including Thomas, Joseph and Francis Hopkinson, but also include those of Duche, Dorsey and Coale family members, and Dr. John Morgan. Both business and personal correspondence was copied, and correspondents included, in addition to family members, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and Robert Morris. Originals of this material are in the Pennsylvania, New York, and Maryland Historical Societies, the Library of Congress, the Huntington Library, and in private hands.

Letters (1918-1923) to Mrs. Francis T. Redwood concern her son's service in France, his death, and remembrances of him.

Letters of George B. Coale and Charles Bradenbaugh include two letters to Coale (1849, n.d.) from Charles and Adele Hohnstadt of Boston concerning a visit, and thanking him for a composition. Two letters from Charles Bradenbaugh (n.d.) are to an unidentified person, and concern the latter's invention of a pump.

A collection of poems (1840-1903) includes approximately fifty handwritten copies of poems by members of the Proud, Coale and Dorsey families and authors such as Jones Very, Katherine Lee Bates, Benjamin Hallowell and others. Themes range from memorial, religious and pastoral thoughts to World War I. Includes, also, the Song of the Maryland Troops in the Confederate Army.

Essays and sermons (n.d.) are both handwritten and printed, and thematically concern degeneration, insanity pleas in murder cases, New Year thoughts, and Elbert Hubbard's A Message to Garcia, among other topics.
