The papers detail the personal lives and professional careers of several generations and family lines of the Baldwin family. The legal, political, and business activities of family members in Connecticut, New York, and elsewhere are documented. Major topics include: family, women, law, education, Connecticut and New York politics and government, New Haven, Connecticut, and Yale University.
Financial and legal papers of the Bishop family of Connecticut. The largest part of the papers consists of deeds for properties in New Haven, East Haven, Fair Haven, Branford, Hamden and Guilford, Connecticut. Also included are manifests for slaves shipped from New Haven to Savannah, Charleston and Norfolk (1822-1824). The major figures are Elias Bradley Bishop of New Haven and Jonathan Bishop Sr. and Jr. of Guilford.
The records consist of abstracts of title, atlases, maps, indices, index card locator files, probate extracts, and ownership files from the Clark, Hall, and Peck and White Brothers, and its predecessors, the most active New Haven law firms in real property law between the 1860s and 1982.
Correspondence, financial papers and memorabilia of members of the Gibbs family. Of principal interest are thirteen letters (1783-1796) from Roger Sherman to his brother-in-law, Henry Gibbs, of which five (1789-1790) discuss the deliberations of the first Congress of the United States. Other figures represented in the papers are two Josiah Willard Gibbses (father and son) and Addison Van Name.
Correspondence and legal and financial papers of the Lathrop family of Norwich, Connecticut. More than half of the papers are made up of deeds, receipts, bills of sale, and maps of lands in the Connecticut Western Reserve of Ohio (1830-1832) inherited by Jonathan G. W. Trumbull through his wife from Joshua and David Lathrop. Principal figures in the collection are Joshua Lathrop and his sons, Daniel and Frank T. Lathrop.
The records document quartz mining in Nevada County, California. The collection consists of the corporate records of the North Star Mining Company, Gold Hill Mining Company, and other Grass Valley companies. The collection contains deeds and maps of the area, as well as printed material on Grass Valley and mining.
A smaller quantity of material documents mining in other areas and may have been the property of James D. Hague, one of the largest Grass Valley investors.
The records document the mining of the Comstock Lode, focusing on the operations of the mines, but including information of the San Francisco stock market and court cases involving the mines in both Nevada and California. The collection consists of the corporate records of the Savage Mining Company, the Hale & Norcross Mining Company, and other Comstock companies.
