Papers, 1840-1937, 1977.

Papers of Henry Lloyd, American journalist and social-economic reformer, whose name is associated with late nineteenth century populism and radical thought in the United States from 1881-1903. Lloyd was one of the first systematic students of rising corporate capitalism; a pioneer in the field of business and social ethics for an urban-industrial America; a silk-stocking champion of labor's right to organize and a leader in its fight for better treatment; an investigator of the "new liberalism" and of cooperative movements in Europe and of state socialism in New Zealand, and a transmitter of their experiences to America; and an author whose work included his muckraking "Wealth against Commonwealth" (1894), the bulk of whose original manuscript is in the collection. Papers consist of correspondence, 1866-1936; manuscripts of articles and books written by Lloyd; scrapbooks containing annotated clippings of articles by and about Lloyd and subjects in which he was interested; book reviews; research materials; and miscellany. In the miscellany is correspondence, 1896-1937, of Caro Lloyd, mainly dealing with her preparation of the 2-volume biography of her brother, published in 1912; papers from Lloyd's participation in civic activities as a resident of Winnetka, Ill.; and documents from his work with the People's Party, 1894-1896. Lloyd's correspondents included men and women of distinction from a wide geographical area. Among those whose letters are most numerous are: Jane Addams, John P. Altgeld, Edward W. Bemis, Samuel Bowles, John Burroughs, William Clarke of England, Clarence L. Darrow, Thomas Davidson, Eugene V. Debs, Richard T. Ely, Henry George, Washington Gladden, Samuel Gompers, Edward Everett Hale, George D. Herron, William D. Howells, Henry Keenan, Alfred F. von der Leyen of Germany, Edwin D. Mead, Thomas J. Morgan, Eltweed Pomeroy, William M. Salter, Simon Sterne, Ethelbert Stewart, John Swinton, Ida M. Tarbell, Booker T. Washington, Frances E. Willard, and Carroll D. Wright.
