Evarts family papers, 1753-1960 (inclusive), 1798-1901 (bulk).

The papers consist of correspondence, writings, legal and financial material, congressional papers, family memorabilia, and other papers of various members of the Evarts family of Vermont, Boston, and New York. The principal figures, however, are Jeremiah Evarts (1781-1831), author, editor, lawyer, and philanthropist, and his son, William Maxwell Evarts (1818-1901), lawyer and statesman. The papers of Jeremiah Evarts relate to his work and writings on Congregational orthodoxy, his travels for the American Board of Foreign Missions, and his efforts on behalf of American Indians. His correspondents include family members, fellow members of the Yale Class of 1802, and many well-known clergymen, lawyers, statesmen, and missionaries. The papers of William Maxwell Evarts relate to New York politics and law, and to his work as a diplomat, as Secretary of State under Rutherford B. Hayes, and as a U.S. Senator (1885-1891). There is very little on some of the more celebrated legal cases with which he was involved, such as the impeachment of Andrew Johnson or the Beecher-Tilton affair, though there is material relating to the trial of Jefferson Davis. Correspondents include many well-known lawyers, diplomats, government officials, statesmen, and fellow members of the Yale Class of 1837.
