    Biographical Note

    Over his lifetime, Andrew Allen Harwood (1802-1884), great grandson of Benjamin Franklin, kept letters and notes of interest and autographs in a collection known as ODDS & ENDS. He willed it to his grandson, Thomas Triplett Hunter Harwood. In the year 1940 it passed into the hands of his nephew, A. A. Harwood's great grandson, Wilson Franklin Harwood (Stanford '35).
    A. A. Harwood's career in the Navy started with his appointment as Midshipman on the gun-brig Saranac in 1818. He retired with the rank of Rear Admiral in 1874. For this reason, much of the material he put into his odds and ends was navy connected.
    After 1940, W. F. Harwood added other items of interest that had come into the possession of various branches of the family over time.
    Much of the added documentation concerns George Spencer Wilson, maternal grandfather of W. F. Harwood. G. S. Wilson (1842-1897) from boyhood was in the military service. In 1861 he started as a corporal in the Indiana Volunteers; at the time of his death he was Major and Assistant Adjutant General, U.S. Army.
    Another source was the archives of Lee Lewis Harwood (Stanford '38). Her father, Winford Lee Lewis (1878-1943), a graduate of Stanford University and a chemist, had kept a few letters from Jordan, Hoover, Wilbur, and others.
    Many references will be found in the more recent papers to the parents of W. F. Harwood: Franklin Bache Harwood (1876-) and Margaret Spencer Wilson Harwood (1883-1964).

    Scope and Content

    Letters, notes, autographs, portraits, and other materials collected by the Harwood Family over a period of two hundred-fifty years. Much of the early materials, including Revolutionary War era materials, are navy and military service related. Later materials include letters from major political, financial, and literary figures. Correspondents include Herbert Hoover, Nelson A. Rockefeller, Ray Lyman Wilbur, Pearl S. Buck, and Carl Sandburg. Also included are engravings, photographs, and autographs of historical figures.
