Biographical History

Three generations of the Burlingame family are represented in the papers of this collection. The three major historical figures in the family are discussed below in accordance with the amount of material present on each individual.

Anson Burlingame was born in 1820, the son of Joel and his wife Freelove (Angell) Burlingame. He attended the University of Michigan and Harvard Law School. After marriage to Jane Cornelia Livermore, the daughter of Isaac Livermore, Burlingame began a promising political career in the Massachusetts Senate. In 1855 he was elected as a Republican to Congress where he served three terms. After the presidential campaign of 1860 he became minister to Peking in which capacity he concluded the Burlingame Treaty. Burlingame died while on a diplomatic mission to St. Petersburg, Russia in 1870.

Edward Livermore Burlingame was the first son born to Anson Burlingame in 1848. As a young man he grew up in the Cambridge, Massachusetts area, and in 1861 entered Harvard. When his father was appointed minister to China, young Edward followed him to Peking, and later Paris, Berlin, Heidelberg, and St. Petersburg. In 1871 he began a career with the New York Tribune, and married Ella Frances Badger in the same year. Burlingame became a literary advisor to Charles Scribner's Sons, and in 1886 was appointed editor of the new Scribner's Magazine, a post he held until his resignation in 1914. E. L. Burlingame died in 1922.

The second son of Edward and Ella Burlingame was William Roger Burlingame, who was born in 1889. As a boy Roger attended Morristown School and went on to Harvard University, graduating from the latter in 1913. After serving with the American Expeditionary Force in France, he returned to America and assumed various posts with Charles Scribner's Sons. In 1926 he began a career as a free-lance writer augmented by teaching stints at Barnard and M.I.T. During the course of his long career, Burlingame wrote many articles, essays, books, and short stories. He is particularly known for non-fiction works on the historical impact of industry and technology on American society, though he did publish several novels during the early part of his career. His autobiography, published in 1958, is entitled I Have Known Many Words.

In 1933 Roger married Angeline Whinton, known professionally as Ann Watkins, literary agent and president of Ann Watkins Inc. Mr. and Mrs. Burlingame died within a few days of each other in 1967.

A genealogical chart of the Burlingame family is available at the end of this inventory.


Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Burlingame Family Papers, 1856-1967, consist of the private and public papers of several generations of a prominent American family. The major contributor to the collection is writer and historian Roger Burlingame. There are also small amounts of material relating to Anson, Walter A., Edward Livermore, and Ann (Whinton) Burlingame. The papers are organized in five major groups: Correspondence, Legal and Financial Records, Memorabilia, Organization Records, and Writings.

Correspondence (Boxes 1-14) dates from 1856 to 1967, and is separated into incoming and outgoing letters. Among the items of special interest are the letters written by Walter A. Burlingame describing his experiences in China while accompanying his father, ambassador Anson Burlingame, in 1866 and 1867. Also, present are letters from well known authors including F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Marquand, Edith Wharton, Rudyard Kipling, Archibald MacLeish, Kaye Boyle, Sidney Howard, and others. The Legal and Financial Records group (Boxes 15-16), 18711967, contains documents pertinent to the-business affairs of several family members. There are wills, insurance policies, passports, royalty statements, and a variety of materials of a similar nature.

Memorabilia (Boxes 16-23, Oversize 1-5) dating from 1865 to 1967 contains items of incidental interest about the private lives of the Burlingame and related families. Included in this group are address books, newspaper clippings, ephemera, genealogical records, biographical material, and photographs.

Organization records (Boxes 24-28), 1914-1964, consist of materials related to Roger Burlingame's association with various organizations. Among these are the Century Club, the Housatonic Valley Conference, Office of War Information, and the United States Army.

Writings (Boxes 28-54) date from 1856 to 1967, and include the written works of Roger, Ann, Walter, and Anson Burlingame. The bulk of this material was prepared by Roger Burlingame and includes articles, books, book reviews, diaries, poetry, short stories, and speeches. Included in this group are drafts of published and unpublished works as well as materials used in preparing the drafts. There is a miscellany of literary works and drawings done by others.

The 1977 Accession consists of five article reprints (some with inscriptions) donated by Roger Burlingame. These are listed under Miscellany: Articles.


Arrangement of the Collection

Incoming letters are arranged alphabetically by the last name of the sender or by the name of the institution the sender represents. Outgoing correspondence is arranged chronologically by year and month. Some of the family correspondence has been separated out into a separate section. Items in Memorabilia are organized alphabetically by type of material. Manuscript materials are organized alphabetically by the name of the organization, and subdivided by the type of document. Writings are arranged alphabetically by author, and then by type of written work.

Note that due to rearrangement of the files there is NO BOX 14.
