Reports on Mrs. Blaine's real estate, especially the Hubbard Woods Estate. Also a purchase of some rare books; a situation that almost developed into a law suit.

Included are reports on Mrs. Blaine's income tax for the years 1917-1919, and a difficulty which arose with the Treasury Department, which was settled out of court on Mrs. Blaine's terms. There is also a document which outlines in detail the legality of Harold McCormick's divorce from Edith Rockefeller and his legal right to remarry.

Box   120-126
1928-1947
Physical Description: 74 folders 
Note

The Cassels papers from 1928 until his death in 1947, concern the affairs of the Stanley McCormick and Mary Virginia McCormick estates, and Mrs. Blaine's connection with them. The bulk of the correspondence contains financial affairs, legal affairs (which not infrequently were fought out in court), and administrative affairs of these two estates.

Both Stanley and Virginia McCormick were incompetent children of Cyrus Hall McCormick. There was a great deal of legal work involved in handling the properties of these two incompetents. Upon their deaths, it took much effort for Cassels and others to settle their estates.

The biggest single factor which Mrs. Blaine had to deal with through Cassels was the friction between Mrs. Stanley McCormick and the McCormick family on the treatment and property affairs of Stanley McCormick. One case went as far as the Illinois Supreme Court. There were many other cases in Illinois and California.

In the Report of Proceedings of the Circuit Court of Cook County, June 29-July 17, 1915 is a summary of Mary Virginia McCormick's life given in Mrs. Blaine's words. Much can be learned from these folders concerning the legal status of incompetent people and the handling of their estates.

From time to time, shares of International Harvester stock were sold for the estates of Stanley and Virginia, so that one can determine the value of such stock throughout this period. Fluctuation in value of these estates is very evident between 1928 and 1947.

From 1928-1947 there are, interspersed with the affairs of these two estates, items of other interest.

Cassels shared Mrs. Blaine's interest in international affairs, world government, and world peace. In May 1937, there is a letter from James Hamilton Lewis of the United States Senate concerning Roosevelt's court packing attempt. Also in the May 1937 folder is a booklet “Pacific Affairs,” which reveals American knowledge of far eastern affairs at that time.

In the June to December 1937 correspondence are a few pieces which treat very generally the “World Foundation.” In 1938, Cassels wrote concerning the “American Committee for World Citizenship,” but in November of 1938 there is a letter which shows that Mrs. Blaine offered to underwrite the “World Citizens Committee” to the extent of $30,000. A document dated September 20, 1941 shows that Mrs. Blaine gave a total of $60,000 to the World Citizens Association up to that time. Mrs. Blaine was the chairman of the executive committee of this organization, and Cassels the treasurer. These folders include the minutes of the December 5, 1938 meeting of the Executive Committee of the WCA? (found in the January 1939 folder) and also the March 3, 1939 minutes. The latter meeting was held in Mrs. Blaine's Chicago home.

The June 1938 correspondence contains several letters from Cassels and others on “The New Commonwealth,” an international society to promote international law and order through the creation of an equity tribunal and an international police force. During the years preceding and during World War II, Cassels sent Mrs. Blaine a great number of reports from the State Department, which can be found in these folders. Examples include:

  • January 1939 papers on the Lima Conference, including a speech of Alfred Landon;
  • April 15, 1939 speech by Ben M. Cherrington of the Dept. of State on American foreign policy in general;
  • June 6, 1939 speech of Sumner Wells (Under Secretary of State) on the war threat;
  • January 1940 pamphlet by Grenville Clark concerning a “Federation of Free Peoples.”

In 1945 and 1946, Cassels corresponded concerning the United Nations; he sent her the charter etc.

In January of 1943, Cassels was instrumental in the “International Relations Center,” toward which Mrs. Blaine contributed at least $1,000. Also included with the 1943 correspondence is a speech Harold E. Stassen delivered before the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations entitled, “The United Nations as a Pattern for a Lasting Peace,” March 31, 1943 (found in April to December 1943 folder).

From 1943-1947 there are occasional reports on the “Nettie Fowler McCormick Trust for the Chinese People,” worth $100,000, the interest of which was to be used by Madame and Chiang Kai-shek, as they saw fit. Document filed March 20, 1943 contains the details of this trust.

In the 1942-1946 papers are several pieces entitled “Eastern Trust,” which seems to concern financial matters of all the McCormicks, but is not explained.

There is a speech dated December 18, 1945, which either Cassels or Mrs. Blaine must have delivered entitled, “The Battle of Peace.”

Letter of June 27, 1946 reveals that Cassels proofread the galley sheets of “The World at the Crossroads,” a publication of the Executive Committee of the World Citizens Association.

Cassels died July 8, 1947 at the age of 72.

Earlier letters concern tatting work, which Mrs. Caustin did for Mrs. Blaine. She had considerable trouble getting paid.

Last letter asks Mrs. Blaine to buy a house, which Mr. Caustin and his crew had recently built. Since it was 1931 January, there was difficulty in marketing houses. Mrs. Caustin used the argument that by buying the house her husband would be able to put his men to work on a new job. She also wished to sell a thrashing machine patent for $10,000. The patent certificate was signed by Andrew Jackson.

Box   145
1899
Note

Reports on the nature of the possible schools to be opened and the disposition of funds for them.

Prior to July 1899 Jackman was still Assistant Manager of the Chicago Normal School. At that time he accepted Parker's offer of the position of head of the science department and dean of the schools Mrs. Blaine proposed to open. But even the material prior to that date seems to refer to the opening of the schools Mrs. Blaine contemplated. The bulk of the 1899 material consists of quite detailed estimates of income and expenditures, analysis of the several departments and of the purposes of the school as a new experiment in the American school system. These letters are as full and cogent as any in the collection and perhaps the most important save for Parkers.

Box   145
1900 January-July
Note: More of the material in this folder deals with administrative details. Jackman's letter from Germany, March 6th, equals those from Paris of the preceding fall in descriptiveness of educational experiments. Dean's Report to the President also of considerable importance.
