Biographical/Historical Note


Thomas Affleck was born in 1813 to a prominent Scottish family of Dumfries, Scotland. He emigrated to New York at nineteen and studied agriculture and general sciences while he lived on the East coast. He moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1839, and the following year he became the editor of the Western Farmer and Gardener, a widely circulated agricultural periodical in the West. It was in this position that his views and knowledge as an agriculturalist came to have some value for the American farmer. During a trip to Natchez, Mississippi, in 1842, Affleck met his second wife, Anna Dunbar Smith. They established their household at Ingleside near the town of Washington in Adams County, Mississippi. Through this marriage, Affleck became legally responsible for the large financial debts of Anna’s former husband. He managed the plantations of his wife and stepson and established, at his Ingleside farm, one of the first commercial nurseries in the South. The plants he imported from the North and Europe came to have great agricultural importance in the region. Much of his time was given to public service, and he wrote extensively on scientific and agricultural subjects in order to establish himself as a scholar and public-minded citizen. He served as editor of agricultural departments of several newspapers, and published the Southern Rural Almanac and Plantation Garden Calendar continuously from 1845 to the 1860s. Before the Civil War, Affleck moved to Washington County, Texas. Most of the articles he published in Texas before the Civil War appeared in the Houston Telegraph. After 1865, the majority of his articles appeared in the Galveston News.


Realizing the political unrest in the country, the turmoil that war would cause in the region, as well as being heavily in debt Thomas Affleck disposed of his holding in Mississippi and moved to Texas in 1857. Following the Civil War, Affleck made several trips to the North and to England to promoted immigration of white labor to the South. At the time of his death in 1868, Affleck made his living selling creysilic acid, a carbolic acid compound. The correspondence reflects his extensive knowledge of horticulture. Through his correspondence and publications, Thomas Affleck established himself as a prominent authority in the study of agriculture.


Scope and Content


Thomas Affleck Papers consist of the correspondence, business papers, printed books and pamphlets, legal documents, newspapers, and writings of Thomas Affleck and relate primarily to Thomas Affleck, his family, and his interest in agriculture.


Early papers (1807-1859) pertain to the Affleck and Hannay families of Dumfries, Scotland, Thomas Affleck's early life, and social and economic unrest in Scotland during this time period. Papers also describe Affleck's emigration to the United States, his life in Pennsylvania (1832- 1834), Indiana (1835-1838), and Kentucky (1839-1842), and his activities as editor of the Western Farmer and Gardener. Frontier conditions and the difficulties of the frontier merchant are discussed in correspondence between 1835-1840. A printed copy of a lecture supporting abolition (June 15, 1836) is also among these early papers. Papers from 1842-1859 relate to the management of his wife's plantation near Natchez, Mississippi, his agricultural experiments, the establishment of his commercial nursery, and his service as agricultural editor of several newspapers. Correspondents include Martin W. Philips, Robert W. Scott, Edmund Ruffin, S. D. Gale, E. J. Hooper, Thaddeus W. Harris, Henry S. Randall, N. M. Hentz, John Parkhill, Matt R. Evans, C. B. Stewart, J. V. Jones, N. B. Cloud, and B. L. C. Wailes.


Civil War papers (1860-1865) concern Affleck's relocation to Washington County, Texas, his travels through Mexico in 1863, the establishment of a plantation factory, and the sale of plantation products to the Confederate States of America. Civil War letters written by Affleck's sons, Thomas Dunbar and Isaac Dunbar, describe battles, camp life, and troop movements. There is also a reference to slaves remaining on the plantation (Feb. 17, 1861).


Post Civil War papers describe Affleck's agricultural and speculative enterprises, his project to promote the use of white labor in the South, his interest in irrigation and dredging projects, meat canning, and direct exportation of cattle to England.


Among the undated material are several manuscript writings pertaining to various agricultural and horticultural topics, including Texas pine forests, hogs, poultry, southern cowpeas. There is also a detailed description of the route between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia (n.d.).


Manuscript volumes include diaries (1829-1833) documenting Thomas Affleck’s daily activities with some references to the political environment in Scotland at the time. Volume four (1832) of the diaries gives an account of Affleck’s voyage across the Atlantic to the United States. Manuscript volumes also include letter books (1850-1868); a journal (1854-1856); a record book (1859-1876) recording contracts for construction projects, expenses related to a lumber mill, and expenditures for food, farm equipment, and various sundry items. Additionally manuscript volumes contain miscellaneous memoranda books (1833, 1850, n.d.), notebooks relating to cotton, extracts, and fruits (n.d.), order books (1850-1859), and recipe books (1829-1831, 1866, n.d.). Printed books and pamphlets include works by Thomas Affleck, and related primarily to


agricultural and scientific interests.


Collection also includes typescripts of printed pamphlets, scientific writings of Thomas Affleck, correspondence, and manuscript volumes (described above). Manuscript volumes include diaries (1829-1864), an order book (ca. 1853-1856), letter books (1850-1868), recipe books (1829, 1831, n.d.), a cotton notebook (n.d.), record book (1859-1876), and journal (1854-1856). Correspondence includes an exchange of Civil War letters between Thomas Affleck, his wife, Anna Dunbar Affleck, and their son Dunbar Affleck.


Also among the papers are typescripts of correspondence, printed items and a scrapbook of which the originals are not contained within this collection. Material within the scrapbook pertains to the labor question in Texas, immigration, farm crops, cattle breeding, preserving fresh meat, and related subjects (see appendix A for a complete list of items within the scrapbook and appendix B for a list of printed pamphlets).


Note: Typescripts of original correspondence within the collection accompany the originals; typescripts of manuscript volumes are contained in boxes 31-32; typescripts of correspondence of which there are no originals are housed in box 15b.
