Correspondence and other papers of Champion Spalding Chase, Civil War veteran, lawyer, and politician. The papers are comprised primarily of personal correspondence between Chase and members of the family, although there is some material related to his Civil War experiences and to his work with the Whig Party and the Republican Party.
The papers consist of correspondence, notes, and background material which document Peter Cooper's legal work to preserve the quality of the environment in the New Haven area and on Long Island Sound. Cases involve issues of energy transmission, coastal area development, highway construction, pollution of public water supplies, air quality control, and nuclear power plant construction.
The largest part of the papers is made up of letters addressed to William D. Ely by young friends from 1837-1847, in which several of the men discuss their careers. Also in the papers are a number of letters (1834-1838) written by Anne Crawford Allen (later his wife) to various members of her family about a visit to Georgia and her view of slavery.
Chiefly typescripts of both the English and German versions of Otis H. Fisk's (1870-1944) book on the government and legal system of the United States, published in German as Kunde über Amerika (1944). Also in the papers are notes on the constitutions of the states of New York and Oklahoma and various diplomas and certificates.
The collection primarily consists of professional correspondence, deeds, land surveys, financial ledgers, a patent letter, receipts, promissory notes, proxy agreements, quit claims, and other materials that document the legal activities of Jesse Gilbert (1797) and other individuals who were possibly employed by the same New Haven law firm. The collection also contains a small amount of personal and family correspondence discussing family news and events.
Correspondence, notes, drafts, clippings of cases from court reporters, all relating to Hazard's work as principal writer of Restatement of the Law: Second Judgements (St. Paul, American Law Institute Publishers, 1982).
