expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

William Stump Forwood, son of Samuel Forwood, was a physician and local historian of Darlington, Md. He was born 27 January 1830 in Darlington and remained there most of his life. At his father's urging, he moved to Gosport, Ala., in 1848, returning to Maryland in 1851. He again lived in Gosport during the period 1870-1873. He married Pamela Wilson, probably in June 1857. She died in childbirth on 19 March 1860. On 6 May 1863, Forwood married Addie Bond. Forwood and his second wife had two children, Lizzie and Katie.

Forwood served as president of the Clarke County, Alabama, Medical Society; the Pennsylvania and Maryland Union Medical Association; and the Harford Historical Society, of which he was a charter member. He was also president and founder of the Medical Society of Harford County.

Forwood wrote extensively on the "ethnological" justification for slavery. He also published articles in medical journals on a variety of topics. He was the author of An Historical and Descriptive Narrative of the Mammoth Cave of Kentucky, first published in 1870.

Forwood remained active in his medical practice until his death, apparently in 1891.

About 850 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Mostly personal and professional correspondence of William Stump Forwood with family members, friends, and professional associates.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 1.1. 1836-1861.

About 270 items.

Mostly letters from family members, especially from Forwood's father, Samuel, who moved to Gosport (Clarke County), Ala., in 1832. These letters concern health matters and farming conditions in Alabama. Also of interest are Samuel Forwood's references to slavery and the impending Civil War.

In a letter dated 8 October 1846, Samuel Forwood advised his son to become a doctor because "it will not prevent you from being a Farmer, you could attend to both...and it is an easy profession to acquire."

Numerous letters, beginning 4 April 1857, discuss the alleged intellectual inferiority of the black race.

About 50 items.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 1.3. 1866-1884.

About 250 items.

Letters from Samuel Forwood continue, except for the periods 1870-1873, when William Stump Forwood was in Alabama, and 1873-1875, a break in correspondence apparently due to a disagreement between Forwood and his father leading to Forwood's return to Maryland.

Forwood's interest in local history and Mammoth Cave also apparently began during this period. Letters beginning in 1868 concern a lawsuit involving the Mammoth Cave book.

Correspondence beginning in 1874 reflects Forwood's almost constant financial troubles. In a letter dated 10 September 1876, he wrote of his difficulties collecting payments, and stated, "my profession is not a profitable one ...." Letters beginning in 1883 concern a lawsuit against his brother Henry over a financial matter.

Letters during this period also mention Forwood's unnamed illness, a recurrent topic in letters from 1875 until his death in or about 1891.
