Descriptive Summary

Title: Campbell-Mumford Family Papers
Dates: 1719-1980 (bulk 1793-1892)
Abstract: Most of the material in the Campbell-Mumford Papers focuses on William W. Campbell, his son, Douglas Campbell 1st, or Benjamin M. Mumford. Key topics include Mumford's business as an insurance broker, William Campbell's work as a judge and historian, and Douglas Campbell 1st's work as an historian. Much material focuses discretely on the Campbell family or discretely on the Mumford family; only with the marriage of Harriet Bowers Mumford Paige and Douglas Campbell 1st in 1865 were the two families intimately linked.
