Terry family papers, 1795-1939 (inclusive).


Terry family papers, 1795-1939 (inclusive).

Papers of five family members, the children and daughter-in-law of Alfred and Clarissa Terry, make up the major part of the collection. The most prominent figure is Alfred Howe Terry, a Civil War general in the Union army, whose correspondence and military papers relate to the Fitz-John Porter case, the Indian campaigns (1870s) and reminiscences of military service and the Civil War. Included are orders for the court martial of General Custer and drawings supposedly given to Terry by Sitting Bull. Other family members include his brother, Adrian, who also served in the Civil War, and Adrian's wife, Isadore Wright Terry, whose correspondence includes letters from her husband during the war describing his experiences. The papers of Elizabeth Howe Terry include a diary (1875) kept on an ocean voyage to Europe, while the papers of Harriet Wadsworth Terry, the second lady principal of Vassar College, are largely made up of family correspondence. Papers of other family members and memorabilia, including Civil War mementos and a prescription for the cure of cholera make up the remainder of the papers.
