Container List

Series III. Boxes labeled H-D (Hawkins-Delafield), circa 1853-1924 (bulk 1880s-1910)

Scope and Contents

The series holds the content of boxes originally labeled as H-D. It includes files of Hawkins and Delafield and the short-lived Hawkins, Delafield and Sturgis. The principals are Lewis Livingston Delafield II, Eugene Hawkins, and Robert Sturgis, with some files of Dexter Hawkins, Caleb Burbank, and a few Lewis Delafield I.

Some notable matters in this series: business disputes, including those concerning the firms Clapp & Co. and Price, McCormick & Co.; various claims against the Manhattan Railway Company and Metropolitan Elevated Railroad Company; and legal work for the Meeks family. Matters concerning the estate of Wilhelm Pickhardt are extensively documented with original correspondence, financial records, etc. concerning Pickhardt's patents, property in Schroon Lake, business dealings, etc. Also extensively documented is Caleb Burbank's work as executor for the will of his uncle, Ambrose Burbank, and the resulting long-running lawsuit of Mary Newcomb, David Newcomb, and others against Caleb.

The series holds some case diaries and other personal papers of the attorneys. Some of these pertain to Robert Sturgis. He seems to have had some involvement or investment with the Nicaragua Canal Company; this series (and series V) have various printed material related to the canal from Sturgis's files.

Arrangement

The documents in this series were originally held in about 180 boxes labeled as H-D, with each label also indicating a number or numbers ranging from 1 to 675, with gaps. Each number represented a packet of documents in the original box. Unlike the D-L and LLD boxes, with only a few exceptions each number related to only one packet and that packet related to only one matter. The container list retains this sequence, with some exceptions to accommodate storage considerations.
