Charles Burr Todd papers

Call Number: MS 1096
Scope and Contents
The papers of Charles Burr Todd consist entirely of letters, 1880- 1917, to him concerning his writings for Appleton's Cyclopedia of American Biography, his Life and Letters of Joel Barlow, and other works. The majority of the letters are from editors and others whom he consulted or solicited in connection with his work. There are a number of well-known individuals among his correspondents, including Hamilton Fish, W. D. Howells, Henry Cabot Lodge, Theodore Roosevelt, and Ida Tarbell, but their letters offer little of substance. An alphabetical list of selected correspondents is appended-to this finding aid.

The letters were originally mounted in an album, from which they have been removed. The collection is now arranged in chronological order.
