Overview and metadata sections

The Blairs were a prominent United States political family based in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia. Along with members of the related Lee family, individuals in the Blair family were active in American politics, business, journalism, law, and philanthropy throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Francis Preston Blair Sr. (1791-1876) was an American newspaper editor, journalist, and politician. Blair was born in Virginia, raised in Kentucky, and later made a home at an estate he named Silver Spring in Montgomery County, Maryland, where his descendants lived after his death. He was a member of Andrew Jackson's Kitchen Cabinet and advised Abraham Lincoln during the American Civil War. From 1831 to 1845, Blair ran The Globe (Washington, D.C.), a newspaper that promoted the interests of the Democratic Party during the administrations of Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren. Blair married Eliza Violet Howard Gist (1794-1877), with whom he had five children, Montgomery Blair (1813–1883), Juliet Blair (1816-1819), Elizabeth Blair (1818-1906), James Lawrence Blair (1819-1852), and Francis Preston Blair Jr. (1821–1875). His son Frank P. (Francis Preston) Blair Jr. (1821–1875) was a politician, lawyer, and major general in the United States Army during the Civil War. He became a member of the Missouri House of Representatives from 1852 to 1856 and later represented Missouri in the United States House of Representatives (1857-1864) and Senate (1871-1873). He and his wife, the philanthropist and organizer Apolline Agatha Alexander Blair (1828–1908), had eight children, including chemist Andrew A. Blair (1848-1932), Christine Biddle Blair Graham (1852-1915), James Lawrence Blair (1854-1904), and Francis Preston Blair III (1856-1914). Elizabeth Blair Lee (1818-1906), who was also active in Washington, D. C., political and philanthropic circles, married Samuel Phillips Lee (1812-1897), a naval officer, in 1843. They had one son named Blair Lee (1857-1944), who became a lawyer, legislator and social reformer.

The collection consists of the personal and family papers of five members of the Blair and Lee families of Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia -- Francis Preston Blair (1791-1876); his daughter, Elizabeth Blair Lee (1818-1906); her husband, Samuel Phillips Lee (1812-1897); their son, Blair Lee (1857-1944, Princeton Class of 1880); and his cousin, Andrew Alexander Blair (1848-1932) -- reflecting their various political, journalistic, naval, family, business, legal, and domestic interests. While the collection largely pertains to these five family members, their papers also contain a significant amount of correspondence, documents, and writings of other members of the Blair and Lee families. Among other topics, materials in this collection document the families' involvement in American politics spanning from the Jacksonian Era through World War I.

The Blair family papers consist primarily of papers of politician and journalist Francis Preston Blair (1791-1876), including writings and lectures, documents, family correspondence, articles and other materials related to his editorship of the Globe, estate records, and correspondence with prominent political figures, including many involved with the administration of Andrew Jackson. The papers of his daughter, Elizabeth Blair Lee, document the political and social lives of the Blair and Lee families, as well as her work with the Washington City Orphan Asylum. The papers of Blair's grandson, Andrew Alexander Blair, contain additional family correspondence and span his time at the United States Naval Academy prior to becoming a chemist.

The Lee family papers include the papers of Samuel Phillips Lee, which document his service in the United States Navy, including his involvement in the U.S. Coast Survey, as well as the management of the Silver Spring Farm, real estate ventures, and family and domestic life. The papers of his son, the lawyer and politician Blair Lee, relate to his life as a student, work as a lawyer and United States senator during World War I and the administration of Woodrow Wilson, service in various organizations, and personal and family life.

The papers were originally deposited at Princeton University Library on August 1, 1942, and later gifted to the university by P. Blair Lee (Class of 1918) and E. Brooke Lee (Class of 1916) in 1965-1969 (AM 21313).

Collection Inventory

Scope and Contents

The papers of Francis Preston Blair, journalist and politician, consist of writings, correspondence, documents, materials regarding Blair as a subject, printed matter, papers of other persons, and additional papers. The writings include his speeches, editorials, addresses, articles, essays, and general works; these date from 1830, when Blair was called to Washington, D.C., by President Andrew Jackson to edit the Globe, the official newspaper of the Democratic administration. Although he never held an elected office, Blair was considered a person of political importance and influence in the mid-19th century, and his correspondence is indicative of this, containing letters from Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), Martin Van Buren (1782-1862), and Andrew Johnson (1808-1875), as well as senators Lewis Cass (1782-1866), John Charles Fremont (1813-1890), and John Jordan Crittenden (1787-1863), and congressmen Schuyler Colfax (1823-1885), Edward Livingston (1764-1836), and Thomas Patrick Moore (1797-1853).

Also included is family correspondence, especially with his sons, Francis "Frank" Preston Blair, Jr. (1821-1875, Princeton Class of 1841), lawyer, general, and politician, and Montgomery Blair (1813-1883), lawyer, statesman, and postmaster general in President Abraham Lincoln's cabinet, and daughter, Elizabeth Blair Lee, wife of Admiral Samuel Phillips Lee and mother of Blair Lee.

In addition, there are documents including Blair's last will and testament, financial papers such as receipts, checks, checkbooks, and account books. Among papers of others persons, there is correspondence of Andrew Jackson, manuscripts contributed to the Globe, and old family papers, many of them relating to the family of Eliza Violet Gist, Blair's wife.

Scope and Contents

The papers of Samuel Phillips Lee, naval officer and farmer, consist of miscellaneous writings and notes, diaries, memoranda books, and account books (1858-1896), logs and journals (1847-1866), correspondence, documents, naval records (1861-1872), maps, photographs, memorabilia, artifacts, miscellaneous material, printed matter, and papers of others. Although a professional naval officer (1825-1873), Lee spent his retirement years (1873-1897) at Silver Spring Farm, the management of which had been transferred to him by his father-in-law, Francis Preston Blair. The collection reflects these dual careers as well as Lee's business interests in real estate, especially holdings in St. Louis, Missouri, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. An avid record keeper and commentator, his logs, journals, notebooks, and correspondence contain memoranda of explanation and insightful personal notations.

Of special interest is the correspondence between Lee and his wife, Elizabeth Blair Lee, during the long periods when he was at sea and she remained at home in Washington, D.C., observing and reflecting on the political and social scenes, especially during the Civil War years (1861-1864). The Civil War correspondence of Elizabeth Blair Lee, dating from December 5, 1861 to March 4, 1865, has been published in Wartime Washington: The Civil War Letters of Elizabeth Blair Lee, by Virginia Jeans Laas. The correspondence also contains letters by family members such as his brother, John Fitzgerald Lee (1813-1884), and sister, Frances A. Lee (1837-1889), as well as miscellaneous Blair and Lee family members. Also included are naval personnel such as surgeon John Croxall Palmer (1811-1883), scientist John Mercer Brooke (1826-1906), Gideon Welles (1802-1878), secretary of the navy during the Civil War, and Alexander Dallas Bache (1806-1867), superintendent of the Coast Survey. Many of the letters deal with promotions, transfers, and requests for supplies.

The documents contain both personal (naval appointments, powers of attorney, wills, and financial papers) and real estate (tax receipts, deeds, leases, insurance policies, and memoranda of agreement). About a quarter of Lee's papers contain naval records, coal records, lists of officers, passengers, and seamen, descriptions of ships, and prizes, to name but a few, for ships such as the Brandywine, Young Rover, Vandalia, Newborn, Dolphin, Severn, and Worcester. There are 101 maps in the collection pertaining to Lee's duty with the U.S. Coast Survey and later during the Civil War as commander of the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron and the Mississippi Squadron. The papers of others contain mainly family correspondence.
