Collection Description & Creator Information
Consists of Wertenbaker's works, correspondence, photographs, miscellaneous material, and printed matter. The collection contains manuscripts of his books-- The Planters of Colonial Virginia (Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University, 1922), The Founding of American Civilization (New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1938), The Old South (New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1942), Princeton 1746-1896 (Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press, 1946), Father Knickerbocker Rebels (New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1948)--as well as working files for articles (many on notable Virginians, the Civil War, and Reconstruction), university and public lectures, and speeches. Much of Wertenbaker's works reflect his scholarly interest in Colonial America in general and the state of Virginia in particular. The bulk of the correspondence concerns his historical research, works, and interests, including professional societies, such as the American Philosophical Society and the American Historical Association, although there is some family correspondence as well. In addition, the collection contains a scrapbook, slides used to illustrate his lectures, offprints of Wertenbaker's articles, and subject files.
