Record Group IV: Horsford Family

Scope and Contents

Record Group IV: Horsford Family preserves the personal and professional materials of Eben Norton Horsford and his immediate family. Series A: Eben Norton Horsford includes record types that range from correspondence, ephemera, financial records, legal documentation, journals, printed materials, and research. While they also include manuscripts and printed materials, Series B - I are dominated by the personal correspondence of Horsford’s two wives and five daughters.

Series A: Eben Norton Horsford

Biographical Note

American chemist Eben Norton Horsford (July 27, 1818 - January 1, 1893), was the only son of missionary and politician Jerediah Horsford and his wife Maria Charity Horsford of Moscow, NY. In addition to Eben, Jerediah and Maria Charity produced four daughters: Maria Horsford Byam, Julia Horsford Norton, Eliza Horsford Tryon, and Laura Horsford.

Eben earned a civil engineering degree from RPI (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) in 1838 and contributed to the Geographical Survey of New York under the supervision of geologist and RPI paleontologist James Hall. Between 1840 - 1844, Eben lectured at Delaware’s Newark College, in addition to teaching mathematics and natural sciences at the Albany Female Academy, where he would meet sisters Mary L’Hommedieu Gardiner and Phoebe Dayton Gardiner as students. Between 1844 - 1847, Eben studied with chemist Justus Freiherr von Liebig in Giessen, Germany and returned to the U.S. to marry Mary L’Hommedieu Gardiner and serve as the Rumford Professor and Lecturer on the Application of Science to the Useful Arts at Harvard University, where he would steadily publish and teach until 1863.

Mary gave birth to four daughters: Mary Leila (Lilian) in 1848, Mary Katherine (Kate) in 1850, Gertrude Hubbard in 1852, and Mary Gardiner (Mamie) in 1855. Mary died a few months after the birth of Mamie. Eben wed Mary’s sister Phoebe in 1857, and the couple produced one daughter, Cornelia Conway Felton, in 1860.

In 1858, Eben founded Rumford Chemical Works with George Francis Wilson, who successfully managed his chemical developments and inventions. Eben’s most successful development was the modern formula for baking powder, but he also produced acid phosphate, anti-chlorine, yeast powder, and developed a process for condensing milk. During the American Civil War, Eben devised an “improved army ration” of dehydrated meat; in addition, Rumford generated methods of attaching armor plating to warships, manufacturing fire-proof safes, and water analyses for municipalities in the Boston area.

In 1873, Eben was selected as a member of the U.S. Scientific Commission for the Vienna Exposition. Eben also strongly supported education and professional options for women while becoming Wellesley College’s Board of Visitors President in 1877 and honorary class member in 1886. It was also during this time that Eben began researching and publishing work about Viking settlements in America, namely the “lost city of Norumbega,” which is believed to be present Weston, MA, in which he had a monument erected in 1889.

The Horsfords led an active social life centered on their Cambridge and Harvard communities. They acquainted with several members of the “Boston Brahmin,” in addition to prominent figures of the Cambridge intelligentsia and literary community, including Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., Henry Longfellow, Sarah Orne Jewett, and Helen Hunt Jackson to name a few.

Scope and Contents

Record Group IV, Series A pertains to Eben Norton Horsford’s personal and professional life in the form of eleven different subseries arranged by record type ranging from correspondence in the form of invitations, letters, postcards, and telegrams, Cambridge and Shelter Island estate management documentation in the form of architectural sketches, indentures, and memorandums, financial records in the form of account books, bills, and receipts, patent related circulars, ephemera, and other printed materials, personal and professional writing in the form of collected research, diaries, journals, and notebooks.

Selected printed materials have been removed to Fales Special collections and cataloged. Please search Bobcat to locate these items.

Subseries 1: Correspondence

Scope and Contents

Record Group IV, Series A, Subseries 1, pertains to Eben Norton Horsford’s personal and professional life in the form of communication with his family, friends, and vast business network. With efforts to separate social and professional content, Subseries 1 is organized by four different subsubseries that feature over 4,243 (10,542 pages) assorted forms of communication that detail distinctive professional projects and or subjects, but there remains a significant amount of overlap. Genres range from announcements, artwork and illustrations, calling / visiting cards, ephemera and printed material in the form of advertisements, clippings, and circulars, collected and original poetry, drafts and reproductions of conversations in the form of handwritten transcriptions and photocopies, financial and legal records, invitations, letters, photographic prints, postcards, research notation, and telegrams.

These materials are arranged alphabetically by the company name or surname of the individual in contact.

Record titles reflect this arrangement by taking the form: [Surname, First Name]: [Location].

In the case that a set of correspondence includes multiple authors or the surname of the individual are unidentified, record titles reflect administrative categories, first names, initials, or nicknames, with possible surnames and locations provided in brackets. In the case that a record includes more than one date expression, the listing will begin with its earliest. If a record is physically undated, approximate ranges are provided. These records are noted "undated" and followed by a "circa" estimate determined by the range represented in the same subseries.

Subsubseries a: Academic and Family

Scope and Contents

Record Group IV, Series A, Subseries 1, subsubseries a: Academic and Family pertains to Eben Norton Horsford’s personal and professional life in the form of communication records with his family, friends, and vast business network. While the isolation of subsubseries a: Academic and Family is an effort to separate specific social and commercial content from the rest of Series A, this subsubseries features a significant amount of overlap. Although this portion of Eben’s correspondence houses personal communication with his immediate and extended family and or concern of private business, such as Cambridge and Shelter Island property management, these materials also illuminate Eben’s childhood, education, and professional ascension in chemistry, food science, and local history.

Academic and Family features over 3,325 letters (8,383 pages) dominated by conversations with local and international academics, professionals across fields of industry, and the general public concerning Eben’s public and scholastic circulation of his work with David Zeisberger’s Indian Dictionary and the history of Viking settlements in America. Genres include announcements, artwork and illustrations, calling / visiting cards, drafts of unsent correspondence, financial and legal records, invitations, letters and reproductions of letters in the form of photocopies and transcriptions, photographic prints, postcards, printed ephemera in the form of advertisements, clippings, notices, and telegrams. Eben conversed with renown American and international activists, archaeologists, administrators, architects, astronomers, bibliographers, botanists, chemists, economists, editors, educators, historians, indexers, librarians, ministers, philosophers, physicists, poets, politicians, social reformers, social scientists, theologians, and writers. In addition, this unique set of correspondence demonstrates the Horsford family’s active social life among their Cambridge and Harvard communities, several members of the “Boston Brahmin,” and prominent figures of the New England literary intelligentsia.

These materials are arranged alphabetically by the company name or surname of the individual in contact.

Record titles reflect this arrangement by taking the form: [Surname, First Name]: [Location].

In the case that a set of correspondence includes multiple authors or the surname of the individual are unidentified, record titles reflect administrative categories, first names, initials, or nicknames, with possible surnames and locations provided in brackets. In the case that a record includes more than one date expression, the listing will begin with its earliest. If a record is physically undated, approximate ranges are provided. These records are noted "undated" and followed by a "circa" estimate determined by the range represented in the same subseries.

James Curtis Booth (July 28, 1810 – March 21, 1888) was an American chemist who was the melter and refiner at the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia for many years. Booth was born in Philadelphia, was educated at the Hartsville Seminary, graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1829, and later studied at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York from 1831 to 1832. He visited Germany between 1833 and 1835, spending the year of 1833 in Professor Friedrich Wöhler's private laboratory in Hesse-Cassel, and then spending nine months in the laboratory of Professor Gustav Magnus in Berlin. He opened a chemistry laboratory in Pennsylvania in 1836 for teaching purposes, and when the demand for teaching and chemical analysis increased, he was assisted by Dr. Martin Hans Boyè until 1845. From 1848, Thomas H. Garrett was his associate, and in 1881 the firm became "Booth, Garrett and Blair." The James Curtis Booth Papers (1785-1944) are preserved at the Othmer Library of Chemical History, Chemical Heritage Foundation in Philadelphia, PA.

Amos Eaton (May 17, 1776 – 10 May 10, 1842) was an American botanist, geologist, and educator. Eaton is considered the founder of the modern scientific prospectus in education, which was a radical departure from the American liberal arts tradition of classics, religion, lecture, and recitation. In 1824, Eaton co-founded the Rensselaer School with Stephen van Rensselaer III. Eaton’s botany teaching laboratory in the 1820s was the first of its kind in the country; his popular lectures and writings inspired numerous thinkers, in particular women, whom he encouraged to attend his public talks on experimental philosophy. The Amos Eaton Papers (1797-1846) are preserved at the New York State Library Manuscripts and Special Collections in Albany, NY.
