Description/Abstract

Open for Research... Notes on Collections

The very extensive collection of Osborne Family Papers in the George Arents Research Library has been arranged, described and inventoried for research use. The papers were accumulated by three generations of the prominent Auburn, New York family and date from 1812 to 1968. The majority are the papers of Thomas Mott Osborne (1859-1926) and are related to his political and philanthropic activities as well as to his fervent espousal of the cause of prison reform, both as warden of Sing Sing Prison and the Naval Prison at Portsmouth, N. H. and through private channels. His correspondence includes letters from Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels, Attorney General Charles Devens, Christian A. Herter, Herbert H. Lehman, Gerrit Smith Miller, Alfred E. Smith, Oswald Garrison Villard and Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes.
