Microfilms of the Henry Family Papers at Hagley

Many of the Henry family papers, especially those related to the Boulton Gun Works and to William Henry I’s activities during the Revolutionary War, were transferred by Mary Henry Stites to the Hagley Museum and Library (then called Elutherian Mills Historical Library) in 1968. The collection was at that time microfilmed (15 reels). In 1973 a few additional items were microfilmed on a 16th reel.

The quality of these microfilms is excellent. But the organization of materials is, at times, puzzling. Many documents were not properly identified or were not placed in the most appropriate category. Some materials related to William Henry I (1729-1786), for instance, are filed under the category of the “Boulton Gun Works,” even though Boulton was not established by his grandchildren until nearly thirty years after his death.

One cannot reshuffle material on microfilms, however, so this inventory below identifies the way the materials are organized on the 16 reels of microfilm. Please note, though, that our inventory below attempts to identify nearly every item: thus researchers can now know for the first time the full contents of the collection (even if, in some cases, items appear under inaccurate headings). Please note that at Hagley itself the Henry Family Papers (accession number 1209) are now organized differently: there the materials are separated into two series of 21 boxes (or bound volumes) in all.

Hagley Museum has generously given us permission to digitize these 16 reels of microfilm and to make their contents available. We have begun this process; additional digitized materials will appear soon. Please contact Scott Gordon (spg4@lehigh.edu) if you have questions about these materials.

 

In the guide that follows, we place headers or categories in bold type; individual items are in normal type.
