Herbert Kellar Papers, 1887-1955

Container Title
Series: Series 2: McCormick Historical Association , (1533-1960)
Scope and Content Note

Nearly half of the collection is a part of the McCormick Historical Association file (series 2). These records are Kellar's personal copies. Much is probably duplication of documents found in McCormick Collection manuscripts, e.g. the McCormick Historical Association's official records.

General correspondence of the McCormick Historical Association in the Kellar papers (2.1) is filed in a strict chronological sequence (1911-1960). However, for August 1948 there is a separate folder of correspondence with the J.I. Case Company of Racine, Wisconsin.

The (1916-1955) reports and dockets file (2.2) consists of Kellar's copies of monthly reports to (or dockets of the meetings of) the members of the McCormick family (Cyrus Hall, Jr., Anita McCormick Blaine; Harold F.) or their representatives (Cyrus Bentley and others) to whom Kellar was responsible as director of the McCormick Historical Association. The arrangement is chronological throughout.

Kellar's copies of the financial records of the Association (2.3) are filed here in chronological order (1916-1956). They include moving and storage expenses of the transition period immediately preceding transfer of the McCormick Collections to the State Historical Society of Wisconsin.

Sub-series (2.4) entitled “general information re collections, and operation of the Association” (1855-1969) includes operational materials e.g. information about the collections, lists of holdings, lists of materials loaned, bibliographies, et cetera. There is information re the Dicke Collection of Chicagoana, which the McCormicks considered acquiring, and re the Davidson Collection of Virginiana, which they did purchase. There are copies of old documents filed under research and reference; collected materials re McCormick family genealogy, biography, and memorials. Correspondence, reports, scripts, notes and clippings referring to films, radio programs, centennial celebrations, and Agricultural Hall of Fame awards are filed here. In the 1940's the “future of the (McCormick) library” became of foremost importance with the demoliton of the building in which the library was housed. Correspondence, reports, meeting agenda, and materials concerning possible locations for the library can be found in this sub-series.

Papers filed under sub-series (2.5) Virginia collections (1809-1961) include correspondence regarding the acquisition of Virginiana, Americana, McCormick manuscripts, and stamps for the McCormick library. There are also some typewritten copies of documents concerning William Massie of Rockbridge County, Virginia, a friend of Robert and Cyrus Hall McCormick; and of the Tye River and Blue Ridge Turnpike Company; and from the James Dorman Davidson papers, which are part of the McCormick Collections. With the Davidson materials in Kellar's papers are the results of research in the Davidson papers, on nineteenth-century social history, done in 1938 and 1939 by Arthur Stocks.

The most significant and largest group of materials in this sub-section of the papers is filed as “research and reference” (2.6). A wide range of dates is covered here (1533-1957), with the majority of the materials falling in the nineteenth-century. Included is a listing by Kellar's catalogue number of bibliographic references to Cyrus Hall McCormick and the reaper, as follows:

  • AP - agricultural periodicals
  • AS - agricultural societies
  • AG - agricultural patents
  • AM - agricultural encyclopedias
  • BB - biographical materials
  • BG - genealogical materials
  • HA - agricultural history
  • HL - local history
  • HM - general history
  • RP - religious periodicals
  • RM - religious materials
  • MS - mechanical societies
  • MM - mechanical dictionaries
  • MP - mechanical periodicals
  • ME - exposition reports
  • MC - catalogue materials
  • MG - patent records
  • ML - legal records
  • UP - newspapers
  • UM - miscellaneous
  • GP - general periodicals

There is also a chronologically arranged listing of the agricultural periodical (AP) references; and an alphabetical listing of “non-McCormick references - periodical classification.” Also preserved here are typewritten copies of the materials referred to in the bibliographic references; and newspaper references to Cyrus Hall McCormick copied in manuscript form by Charles O'Connor (a brother of Lucile O'Connor Kellar's) from Chicago newspapers of the latter half of the ninetenneth-century. The reaper controversy research materials are arranged chronologically. They deal with the various reaper patent cases with which Cyrus Hall McCormick was involved. The dispute over the invention of the reaper includes materials from the Robert vs. Cyrus Hall McCormick controversy, Hussey vs. McCormick, Seymour and Morgan vs. McCormick, Manny vs. McCormick, the McCormick Patent Extension Cases of 1848, 1859, and 1861, as well as various other rivals and controversies. Also found here are materials referring to the awards, exhibitions, and contests both foreign and domestic) involving reapers; editorial comment relating to reapers; the bound photo-engraved reprint of the 1885 pamphlet, Memorial of Robert McCormick...Including the Early History of the McCormick Reaper; and the published pamphlet, The Life and Works of Robert McCormick Including the Invention of the Reaper by Robert Hall McCormick and James Hall Shields. Also included here are galley proof and page proof of The Invention of the McCormick Reaper (unpublished) by Cyrus Bentley.
