From the Library of Congress catalog record: Correspondence (1878-1948), diaries (1913-1948), MSS. Of speeches, articles and books, papers of the Daniels, Bagley, Seabrook, and Worth families, and other material. The bulk of the collection relates to events and policy decisions during Daniels's service (1913-1921) as secretary of the navy during the Wilson administration, but also concerns his career as editor of the Raleigh, N.C., News & Observer before and after his government service, his work with the Democratic Party, his role as U.S. ambassador to Mexico (1933-1941), and his interest in such topics as democracy, prohibition, public health and welfare, naval aviation, and radio communication.
Selections have been made from the Thomas A. Edison Correspondence (Box 76; 6 folders) and the Miller R. Hutchison Correspondence (Box 84, 6 folders). Related material can be found in the Naval Consulting Board and Wartime Research Papers in Part V of the microfilm edition and in the Edison Wartime Research Reports (Charles Hummel Collection) in the digital edition.
