Introduction
The bulk of this collection was acquired by the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center between 1984 and 1986.  In addition to this collection, there is a William M. Evarts folder in the Miscellaneous Manuscripts Collection.  This folder includes approximately 70 letters written by Evarts between November 9, 1833 and November 30, 1895. Evarts correspondence to President Hayes is part of the Rutherford B. Hayes Papers. Evarts correspondence also is included in the George W. McCrary and the E. W. Stoughton Collections.

Biographical Sketch
William Maxwell Evarts was born on February 6, 1818 in Boston, Massachusetts.  He was the son of Jeremiah and Mehetable (Sherman).  His maternal grandfather, Roger Sherman, was a signer of the Declaration of Independence.  Evarts graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in 1837 and an M.A. in 1840.  He attended Dane Law

School at Harvard, and studied in the law office of Daniel Lord of New York City until he was admitted to the bar of New York on July 16, 1841. 

Evarts served as Attorney General of the United States from July 15, 1868 to March 1869.  In this position he took the leading role in the defense of President Andrew Johnson in the impeachment proceedings in 1868.  Rutherford B. Hayes appointed him as Secretary of State in 1877 and he served in this role until 1881.  On January 20, 1885, he was elected United States Senate from New York.  He became totally blind during his term, and rarely made public appearances after his Congressional term was over in 1891. 

Evarts married Helen Minerva on August 30, 1843 in Windsor, VT.  She was the daughter of Allen Wardner, a merchant.  Evarts and his wife had twelve children:  Charles Butler; Roger Sherman; Allen Wardner; William; Hettie Sherman; Mary; Helen Minerva; Elizabeth Hoar; Sherman; Prescott; Louisa Wardner, and Maxwell Evarts.  William M. Evarts died in New York City on February 28, 1901. 

Scope and Content
The collection, dating from 1872 to 1883, contains more than 1,000 pieces of correspondence, mostly incoming between William Maxwell Evarts and leading businessmen, diplomats, politicians, religious leaders, and other prominent individuals from the late 1870s and the early 1880s.  Included among the correspondents are: John J. Astor, Henry Ward Beecher, James G. Blaine, George William Curtis, Cyrus W. Field, Collis P. Huntington, John Jay, James Russell Lowell, Thomas A. Scott, Benjamin Silliman, Morrison R. Waite and Sam Ward.  Correspondence also exists between Evarts and members of his family, including his sons Allen, Charles, Maxwell and Prescott; nephews Daniel Crosby, J. Evarts and Roger Sherman Greene; sister Martha Sherman Tracy, brother-in-law Henry Wardner, and cousin Jeremiah Evarts. 

Eleven letters written by President Rutherford B. Hayes from the Executive Mansion and copies of other Hayes/Evarts correspondence are part of this collection. Also included are materials pertaining to the 1876 election and Evarts’ role with the Louisiana Commission.

The collection is arranged in two segments: individuals with three or more pieces of correspondence and files of those individuals with fewer than three letters.  The files in each segment are arranged alphabetically by the correspondent’s surname as it appears in the item-level descriptive inventory.  There is also an addenda which includes 129 letters to Ebenezer Rockwood Hoar dating from December 28, 1855 to February 14, 1894, as well as correspondence with other individuals by both W. M. Evarts and his son Sherman, dating from 1856-1917.  Also included are several school essays from Yale dating from the 1930s.
