George Perkins Marsh Collection

Provenance

The initial collection of George Perkins Marsh Papers came to the University of Vermont through donations made by Caroline Crane Marsh in the late 1880's and has had material material added from many sources since. It now consists of eighteen cartons, with material dating from 1812 to 1929. The largest part of the collection, Marsh's own papers, have been arranged in the following order: correspondence; diaries, notebooks; printed material; and notes, lists, and miscellaneous manuscripts and memorabilia. The correspondence consists primarily of incoming letters, with some copies of outgoing correspondence. Prominent persons represented in this section include: Spencer Baird; George Bancroft; Frederick Billings; Rufus Choate; Henry Clay; Giuseppe Garibaldi; Ulysses S. Grant; Asa Gray; Arnold Guyot; Joseph Henry; Andrew Johnson; Charles C. Jewett; Justin S. Morrill; Carl Christian Rafn; and Frederick Wislizenus. Diaries date from the period 1864-82, while the notebooks range over such topics as English and foreign languages, scrapbooks, visiting lists and address books and natural history. The printed items are largely copies of Marsh's own writings, from The Camel (1856) to Man and Nature (1864). The last section consists of loose notes taken by Marsh for his writings, notecards and bibliographical lists of books in the Marsh library that Frederick Billings purchased for the University of Vermont after Marsh's death, miscellaneous manuscripts and various memorabilia such as medals, diplomatic pouches and certificates of award.
