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) 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 Included in this group are drafts of published and unpublished works as well as materials used in preparing the drafts.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 written by others.

(27 Jan 1868), Singapore (30 Jan 1868), and Benares (17 Feb 1868). There are also four letters to this mother from Alexandria, Jerusalem, and Beyrouth (Mar-Apr 1868).
