Augustus Washington Graham was born in Hillsborough, N.C., on 8 June 1849, the son of William Alexander Graham (1804-1875) and Susannah Sarah Washington Graham (1816-1890). His father served as United States senator, 1841-1844, and as governor of North Carolina, 1845-1849.

Augustus Washington Graham had six brothers and a sister who lived to adulthood:

Joseph Graham (1837-1907) was a physician in Lincoln County and Charlotte, N.C.

John Washington Graham (1838-1928) was an Episcopalian; Confederate major; Orange County solicitor, 1866-1868; delegate to the North Carolina Constitutional Convention of 1868; state senator, 1868-1872, 1876, 1907-1908, 1911; railroad trustee; and lawyer with his brother James in Hillsborough. He married first Rebecca Bennehan Cameron (1840-1883), with whom he had eight children, and then, in 1887, Margaret Forrester Bailey, with whom he had one child.

William Alexander Graham Jr. (1839-1923) received an A.B. from Princeton in 1860. He was a Confederate major and farmed his grandfather Joseph Graham's plantation in Lincoln County. He was a Baptist; white supremacist; state senator, 1874, 1878; member of the North Carolina House, 1905; president of the Farmers Alliance, 1901, 1902, 1905; and North Carolina commissioner of agriculture, 1908-1923. He married first Julia Lane (1845-1909) and with her had eleven children, and then Sallie Hill Clark (1864-1936).

James Augustus Graham (1841-1909) was a Confederate captain and lawyer with his brother John in Hillsborough. He married Elizabeth Cheshire Webb (1845-1915), with whom he had four children.

Robert Davidson Graham (1842-1905) was a Confederate captain; farmer in Mecklenburg County; lawyer; secretary of the United States Civil Service Commission, 1884-1886; chair of the United States Board of Pension Appeals, 1886-1888; and principal examiner, United States General Land Office, 1888-1898. He never married.

George Washington Graham (1847-1923) was a physician. He married first Sallie Shaver (1847-1887), and with her had four children, then Alice Leonora Alexander (1842-1905), and then Imogene Tunstall.

Susan Washington Graham (1851-1909) married Walter Clark (1846-1924), associate justice (1889-1903) and chief justice (1903-1924) of the North Carolina Supreme Court, and with whom she had eight children.

Augustus Washington Graham was graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1868 and was admitted to the North Carolina bar in 1872. He practiced law in Hillsborough for sixteen years until 1888 when he moved to Oxford, N.C., and formed a partnership with Robert W. Winston, which was dissolved in 1890. Graham served on the superior court for two years (1895-1896), then returned to private practice, forming a partnership with William A. Devin in 1900, which lasted to 1913. From 1913 to 1927, when Devin retired, Graham practiced with his son, Augustus W. Graham Jr.

Graham held numerous positions related to his law practice over the course of his career. He was secretary of the Board of Arbitration created by the legislatures of Virginia and Maryland to settle a long-standing boundary dispute and served on the Board, 1873-1876. He served on the Board of Town Commissioners of Oxford, 1889-1892, and as chair of the Board of Education of Granville County, 1907-1908. In 1915, Graham became cotton futures attorney for the United States Internal Revenue Service and was president of the American Cotton and Grain Exchange Inc., 1919-1922, living in Washington, D.C., and New York.

Graham was also active in state politics. He served in the North Carolina Senate in 1885 and in the North Carolina House of Representatives, 1901-1905, 1909, and 1913, including a stint as speaker of the House in 1909. He served as a trustee of the University of North Carolina for thirty-four years.

On 21 November 1876, Graham married Lucy Ann Horner, whose father had founded the Horner Military Academy in 1851. Lucy Horner Graham had at least two sisters: Sophronia Horner and Mary E. Horner (Mollie). Augustus Washington Graham and Lucy Horner Graham had five children: Susan Washington; Augustus Washington Jr.; Sophronia Moore; Alice Robertson, who married Henry Garrett Shirley and died in 1916; and a child who died in infancy in 1884. Graham and his family were members of the Oxford Baptist Church where he held numerous positions of leadership over the years. Graham died on 12 October 1936 at age 87.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 1.1. 1870-1887.

About 700 items.

This subseries covers the seventeen-year period from the beginning of Graham's legal career until his move from Hillsborough to Oxford.

Material from the 1870s consists largely of letters to Graham from relatives and friends concerning family matters, such as the death of Graham's father, events in the careers of his brothers (especially William, who was farming in Lincoln County, N.C.), travels and sicknesses, etc.; upper class social life of those in their twenties in Hillsborough, including courtships, parties, and weddings (including Graham's own); and Orange County and North Carolina politics. There is also some correspondence about legal cases Graham was handling; other North Carolina affairs, including a Ku Klux lynching in 1875; and the conclusion of the Maryland/Virginia border arbitration. Chief correspondents include Graham's brothers; his sister; his parents; some of his sisters-in-law; his brother-in-law Walter Clark (1879); and numerous cousins, especially Alfred J. Morrison and A.W. Knox. Also included are two letters in 1879 from Paul A. Michailowskey, a resident of Odessa, Russia, discussing immigration prospects.

Correspondence for 1880-1887 continues to deal with Graham's law practice, county and state politics, and family affairs. Other topics discussed substantially include mining interests, both in North Carolina and in Mexico (see especially letters of December 1881, November 1885, and March 1887) and land deals and speculation. Other topics are running telephone lines in Hillsborough (May 1883), affairs of Paul A. Michailowskey, hunting dogs, the University of North Carolina, and Graham's move to Oxford (late 1887). Letters about Graham's legal work relate to a variety of cases, mostly in Durham and Orange counties, including estate settlements, debt collections, divorces, pardons of prisoners, and land claims.

Political affairs are covered in numerous letters about Democratic Party affairs in Orange County and elsewhere; Graham's election to the state Senate in 1884 and activities in 1885 while he was in the Senate, especially the Stock Law; his brother John's unsuccessful campaign for the United States House in 1886; and judicial and other appointments. Among Graham's many correspondents on legal and political matters were Walter Clark (about fifty letters during this period); his brothers, especially James, Robert, and William, who also wrote about family matters; Kemp Battle; George T. Winston; E. J. Parrish; Bennehan and Paul Cameron; H. G. Conner (1886); and Josephus Daniels (25 May 1887).

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 1.2. 1888-1897.

About 800 items.

This subseries covers the period from Graham's partnership with Robert W. Winston, 1888-1890, through his tenure on the state superior court, 1895-1897. Law, business, and politics are major topics, with little in the way of intimate family material. In addition to his brothers (mainly George), correspondents include Kemp Battle, Bennehan Cameron, Walter Clark, Josephus Daniels, S. H. Webb, and Zebulon Vance. There is also a letter from Jefferson Davis requesting a copy of speeches by Graham's father William Alexander Graham (30 September 1889).

Items related to Graham's judgeship chiefly include commissions to hold court and requests for jobs as clerks of court. Among legal matters covered is a case against a "New York yankee" who was acting as George Vanderbilt's agent in buying land in western North Carolina (June and July 1891, especially 9 June 1891).

Business matters include Graham's interest in railroads (e.g., 9 September 1895) and in a cigarette-making machine apparently developed by his brother Robert (16, 20, and 21 April 1897 and 1 and 11 May 1897).

There are many political letters from January to October 1893 and a few thereafter about the disputed outcome of the 1892 congressional election between Archibald H. A. Williams and Thomas Settle. Williams, the incumbent Democrat who lost to Republican Settle, claimed that many African-Americans had voted illegally; Graham served as Williams' attorney when he challenged the election result. In an early letter about this election, S. H. Webb wrote Graham about the "general conspiracy to defeat Williams" and how "every negro from 18 years old up voted for Settle." He also noted that "[Benjamin?] Duke's money seemed to have been used against Williams with considerable effect" (13 January 1893 [misdated internally as 1892 but filed with 1893]). Some of the correspondence between Williams and Graham concerns a dispute about Graham's fee for his services.

In 1894, Graham himself unsuccessfully challenged Thomas Settle for this congressional seat (see especially September-October 1894). Much of his opposition came from Populists (see July, 16 August, 17 October, November-December 1894). A related topic covered is the North Carolina State Farmers' Alliance (e.g., 10 September 1890 and 11 May 1893).

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 1.3. 1898-1912.

About 3,000 items.

This subseries covers fifteen years during which Graham, for the most part, practiced law with William A. Devin in Oxford, N.C. Graham also served in the North Carolina House of Representatives, 1901-1905, and again in 1909 when he was speaker. Correspondents include George Graham, Julian Carr, Walter Clark, and Samuel M. Gattis.

Graham's business ventures are the subject of much of the correspondence in this subseries. For instance, beginning around September 1898 and continuing through 1907, letters document his involvement in several mining companies--the Boston and Carolina Copper Mining Company, the Blue Wing Mining Company, and Seaboard Copper--all with operations near the North Carolina-Virginia border. Graham's railroad dealings are also covered, including his appointment by Governor Aycock as a director of the North Carolina Railroad in June 1901 and his interest in the Oxford and Coast Line Railroad in 1902 and thereafter.

Political correspondence during this period not only covers Graham's own legislative races and his election as speaker of the North Carolina House in January 1909, but also his role as an informal adviser to Walter Clark in his races for supreme court chief justice and, in 1912, for the United States Senate. Letters also document Graham's unsuccessful efforts to obtain the Democratic nomination for State Corporation Commissioner (see May-June 1910). Earlier, there is some material about the Republican-Populist fusion (e.g., 15 and 28 September 1898).

The "Kilgo trial" ( Gattis vs. Kilgo ) is the subject of numerous letters beginning in the fall of 1901 and continuing through at least January 1906. (See Subseries 2.1 for more information on this trial.)

A number of letters relate to Civil War veterans' affairs. They document Graham's efforts to publish a Confederate regimental history (June 1901) and C. C. Wheeler's efforts to enlist Graham's aid in obtaining a Civil War pension (20 June and 19 October 1901, 27 August 1902). Among other veteran-related correspondence is a letter from the commander-in-chief of the United Sons of Confederate Veterans comparing the movement to encourage the commercial development of the South to the cause for which their fathers had fought (18 February 1911). Another letter sought the reappointment of General James Longstreet's widow as postmaster of Gainesville, Ga. (22 November 1912). Other materials related to Confederate veterans may be found in Subseries 2.6.

As a trustee of the University of North Carolina, Graham corresponded with others on the selection of a new University president in 1900. Graham's brother George suggested some informal religious criteria for the job: "For President of the University get a Presbyterian if you can, next an Episcopalian or a sinner without a God or a church. For as soon as you elect either a Baptist or a Methodist the devil is going to get the institution and the fullness thereof" (18 April 1900).

This subseries covers the last twenty-four years of Graham's life. Graham formed a law partnership with his son at the beginning of this period that he maintained until his death. During these years, Graham served as cotton futures attorney for the United States Internal Revenue Service, February 1915-August 1919, and as president of the American Cotton and Grain Exchange, September 1919-September 1922, both of these positions generating a great deal of correspondence.

Much correspondence in 1913 concerns the efforts of Graham and W. H. Osborn to obtain positions in Woodrow Wilson's administration. By July 1913, Osborn became commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, and Graham was appointed cotton futures attorney for the Internal Revenue Service in February 1915.

This subseries also contains correspondence between Graham as cotton futures attorney and other cotton futures officials. Their correspondence contains information concerning the New York and New Orleans Cotton Exchanges and suggestions for modifications to the Cotton Futures Act and improvements in handling cotton exchange transactions. This correspondence is mainly from C. B. Griffith and W. R. Cochran.

Despite living in Washington, D.C., and New York during much of this period, Graham maintained a keen interest in North Carolina politics, where he continued to vote. Included is correspondence about the Granville County Democratic convention in 1916 (20 April 1916). There is also an account of a near riot that occurred just after the 1920 elections when Republican mill workers from Carrboro, N.C., paraded through Chapel Hill, where they clashed with egg-throwing, Democrat college boys (13 November 1920). Other important political letters outline Graham's opposition to women's suffrage (7 June 1920, 1 June 1920), document textile executive W. S. Forbes's complaints about labor's gains under Woodrow Wilson (1 November 1920), and reveal Graham's own unhappiness with Wilson (e.g., 7 January 1922). In a letter written during the closing days of World War I, Walter Clark suggested his appointment to the Peace Commission (6 November 1918).

There is also Civil War-related material, including items documenting Graham's attendance at the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1913 and letters about a United Confederate Veterans convention in San Antonio (March 1913).

Correspondence also documents Graham's continued interest in the University of North Carolina, including his efforts to arrange an alumni directory in time for his class's 50th reunion (May 1918). Other organizations with which Graham was involved included the North Carolina Good Roads Association (e.g., 11 June 1917) and the New York Southern Society (e.g., its 31 August 1920 financial statement).

There are several letters about a memorial to Stephen Moore, Graham's Revolutionary War ancestor (October-November 1925) and a letter to Graham from a Frank Fleming about his observations in Russia, where he worked for a tobacco export firm during shortly before the revolution (12 January 1914).

Copies of legal documents and notes pertaining to the suit the Reverend Thomas J. Gattis brought against John C. Kilgo and B. N. Duke in the early 1900s. Gattis sued Kilgo and Duke on charges of libel. Two juries in Granville County heard the case as did the North Carolina Supreme Court. Supreme Court Justice Moore ruled, at a pre-trial hearing, that there was not sufficient evidence for a trial by jury. Ironically, two men were found guilty of trying to influence the juries to rule in favor of Kilgo and Duke. A petition to rehear the case was denied. Correspondence related to this case may be found in Subseries 1.3.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Addition of August 2011 (Acc. 101477), 1828-1963 (bulk 1870-1963).

About 4,500 items.

Arrangement: Chronological.

The Addition of 2011 is arranged into Graham Family Correspondence and Related Materials; A.W. Graham and Lucy Horner Graham Correspondence; and Legal, Business, and Financial Papers. Graham family materials consist chiefly of family correspondence of A.W. Graham and his wife Lucy Horner Graham and their children and grandchildren and other members of the Graham, Horner, Shirley, and associated families in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland. Letters contain family news of health, social events, and other local affairs in Hillsborough, Raleigh, Charlotte, Durham, Chapel Hill, and Oxford, N.C., from the late nineteenth- to the mid-twentieth century. Topics include the Valle Crucis Industrial School; caring for children during family illnesses; visits to sanatoriums for dental problems and rheumatism; an 1887 diphtheria outbreak in Raleigh, N.C.; grief following the deaths of infant and adult children; a death by defenestration that may have been a suicide; academic and social life at the University of North Carolina, 1914-1916; and religion and politics, especially school integration, the civil rights movement in the South, anti-communism and Khrushchev, anti-catholicism and the Kennedy family, the Democratic party, and Christianity in America. Also included are materials documenting A.W. Graham's work as a cotton futures attorney for the United States Internal Revenue Service, and later as president of the American Cotton and Grain Exchange; a small amount of personal and informal business correspondence of William Alexander Graham (1804-1875) with his family, friends, and legal clients, chiefly relating to family affairs, life in Hillsborough and Chapel Hill, N.C., and isolated legal and financial matters; and some professional papers of Robert Davidson Graham. The A.W. Graham and Lucy Horner Graham Correspondence is extensive and intimate and documents family life in Oxford, N.C., and Graham's professional life and travel, primarily from North Carolina to New York, N.Y., and Washington, D.C. Topics discussed are similar to those in the Graham Family Correspondence and Related Materials. Legal, Business, and Financial Papers document the affairs of the Graham family.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Addition of August 2011: Graham Family Correspondence and Related Materials, 1828-1963.

About 3,000 items.

Arrangement: Chronological.

Primarily correspondence between A.W. Graham and Lucy Horner Graham and their close family and friends. Chief correspondents include Graham's children, Susan Washington Graham, Augustus Washington Graham Jr., Sophronia Moore Graham, Alice Robertson Graham Shirley, Henry Garnet Shirley, and grandchildren Robert Shirley, Lucy Graham Shirley, Augustus Shirley ("Gus"), and Alice Shirley. Additional correspondence is with members of the Graham, Horner, Shirley, and associated families in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland.

There is a small amount of personal and informal business correspondence, 1829-1859, of William Alexander Graham (1804-1875) with his family, friends, and legal clients, chiefly relating to family affairs, life in Hillsborough and Chapel Hill, N.C., and isolated legal and financial matters.

After 1871, correspondence is between A.W. Graham and Lucy Horner Graham and their friends and relatives in North Carolina, regarding family news, health issues, social events, and other local affairs in Hillsborough, Raleigh, Charlotte, Durham, Chapel Hill, and Oxford, N.C. Also included are isolated letters, circa 1873-1883, to Robert Davidson Graham. The majority of correspondence is between Lucy Horner Graham and close relatives, including her mother-in-law Susan Washington Graham in Raleigh, N.C., and her sister Mary E. Horner ("Mollie"), in Valle Crucis, N.C. Letters from Mary E. Horner describe her work as a missionary and as principal of the Valle Crucis Industrial School, circa 1910-1922.

Family illnesses and deaths are central topics of discussion in personal correspondence. Letters indicate that young children frequently were cared for by close relatives in the Graham and Horner families in Oxford or Raleigh, N.C., when their parents were ill. Correspondence, circa 1880-1935, refers to frequent illnesses suffered by Lucy Horner Graham, including dental problems and rheumatism, that placed her in sanatoriums including the Church Home and Infirmary in Baltimore, Md. (1915, 1916), Tucker Sanatorium in Richmond, Va. (1919, 1921), and the Westbrook Sanatorium in Richmond, Va. (1927, 1928). Correspondence from 1884 documents the death of the infant child of A.W. Graham and Lucy Horner Graham and the mourning that followed. A letter from 1887 describes an outbreak of diphtheria in Raleigh and Wake and Orange counties. Correspondence from 1913 debates the possibility that Sophronia Horner's death by defenestration may have been a suicide.

Between 1915 and 1922, letters from A.W. Graham to his family reflect his work as cotton futures attorney for the United States Internal Revenue Service (1915-1918), and later as president of the American Cotton and Grain Exchange (1919-1922), which required him to spend extended periods in Washington, D.C., and New York, N.Y. There are many letters, circa 1914-1916, from Augustus Washington Graham Jr. to his parents describing his academic and social life as an undergraduate studying law at the University of North Carolina. Augustus Graham Jr.'s letters includes descriptions of a visit to campus by former President William Howard Taft (23 March 1915) and the inauguration of Edward Kidder Graham as president of the university (26 April 1915). Correspondence increased significantly between Henry Garnet Shirley and the four Shirley children in Towson, Md., and A.W. Graham and Lucy Horner Graham, following the death of Alice Robertson Graham Shirley in 1916. The Shirley family continued to be major correspondents of the Graham family through the 1940s.

After the deaths of A.W. Graham and Lucy Horner Graham in 1936, most letters are to Susan Washington Graham from the Shirley family, and from relatives Nina Horner Manning in Spartanburg, S.C., and Susan Clark Erwin in Greensboro, N.C. After 1957, correspondence is almost exclusively between Susan Washington Graham and Susan Clark Erwin. Erwin's letters mention family news and local affairs in Greensboro and discuss religion and politics in great detail, with strongly conservative, Christian, segregationist, anti-Communist, and anti-Catholic views. Regarding the 1960 presidential election, Erwin wrote that she would not vote in the election because, despite identifying as a Democrat, she "will never vote for any Catholic" (22 August 1960). Other topics discussed include school integration, the civil rights movement in the South, Communism, Khrushchev, the Kennedy family, the Democratic party, J.D. Salinger's book The Catcher in the Rye, and Christianity in America.

Other materials include railroad timetables (1887-1888); printed items, mainly pamphlets relating to the Valle Crucis Industrial School, circa 1916; and clippings, which are found mostly in correspondence from Susan Clark Erwin to Susan Washington Graham, circa 1957-1963.

About 1,200 items.

Chiefly letters from A.W.

Correspondence is extensive and intimate and covers topics that include work on the family home and in the garden; Graham's work as cotton futures attorney for the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and as president of the American Cotton and Grain Exchange; Lucy Horner Graham's dental problems and rheumatism that placed her in the Church Home and Infirmary in Baltimore, Md.

(1927, 1928); and grief following the death of their daughter Alice Robertson Graham Shirley, then a young mother. Also included is a 1912 day planner that may have belonged to Lucy Horner Graham.
