Henry Cullen Adams papers, 1870-1906.

Papers of Henry Cullen Adams, who represented Wisconsin's 2nd Congressional District, 1903-1906, primarily consisting of correspondence and speeches. The papers focus on Adams' three congressional election campaigns and include only scant material about his pre-Congressional career and his legislative accomplishments. There is some information on his work for the enactment of the federal Grout Bill taxing oleomargarine, Arizona-New Mexico Joint Statehood Bill, Philippine Tariff measure, fight against food adulteration, Adams bill to aid agricultural experiment stations, and his opposition to the dictatorial methods of Speaker Joseph G. Cannon. Adams support for agriculture appears most prominently in correspondence with William D. Hoard and officers of the National Dairy Union, and in speeches. The campaign correspondence is exceptionally frank and informative and includes exchanges with many local supporters, district campaign head Grant Thomas, Henry Casson, Elisha W. Keyes, and Joseph W. Babcock of the National Republican Congressional Campaign Committee. The papers include a typescript copy of Mrs. Adams account of the 1905 congressional tour of inspection to Alaska. Ben C. Adams, Henry's brother, is represented by one speech and numerous political letters.
