Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


This collection consists of miscellaneous professional and personal papers created by, and in relation to, various members of the Delafield, Livingston, and other related families, such as Edward Livingston (1764-1836), Philip Livingston (1740-1810), and Philip Schuyler (1788-1865), among others. The papers document the professional lives of individuals, particularly those involved in politics and law, as well as the histories of these families; and in doing so, document various aspects of colonial America and the early Republic, in particular, as well as the areas in which the families lived, especially the Hudson Valley region of New York.
