Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Horace Scudder Papers consists of correspondence addressed to Scudder and/or his wife. The miscellaneous documents, clippings, autographs, appear to have been collected by Scudder, although no particular pattern is discernible. Subjects are primarily concerned with social matters and his editing work, in particular the preparation of his biography of James Russell Lowell. Items are arranged alphabetically by name of principal person. Of particular note in the collection are the Rev. Timothy Edward notebooks (1723), the Rev. Samuel Buell sermons (1746-1747), the single page of James Fenimore Cooper’s The Oak Openings, the draft of the James Monroe letter to the Committee of Publick Safety respecting Jay’s Treaty (1794), and the John Greenleaf Whittier letters to Scudder concerning the preparation of the Riverside edition of his writings.

Collection Historical Note

Horace Elisha Scudder (October 16, 1838 – January 11, 1902) was an American author and editor. He graduated from Boston Latin School in 1854 and from Williams College in 1858, taught school in New York City, and subsequently, returned to Boston and devoted himself to literary work.

Scudder is now best known for his children's books. Perhaps his most popular work is The Children's Book, a collection of literature, The Book of Fables, The Book of Folk Stories, Fables and Folk Stories, and The Book of Legends, suitable for the first four grades. He was the leading advocate of introducing litera­ture into the schools at a time when such advocacy was uphill work, and he edited a great number of literary classics for school use.  Scudder was the author of Dream Children (1864), The Dwellers in Five-Sisters Court (1876), and biographies of Noah Webster (1882), Bayard Taylor (1884), George Washington (1890), and James Russell Lowell (1901). He also edited Atlantic Monthly (1890-1902) and the Riverside Magazine for Young People (1867-1870).
