SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The collection consists of fifteen letters, dating from 1867-1869, written to Henry Grosvenor Eldrege. All but one of the letters were written by men who were friends and had been co-workers of Eldrege at the Winnebago Agency at Winnebago, Nebraska. Some correspondents include Will Clapp, Bradford Porter, Charles H. Potter, and John Taffe, a U.S. congressman from Nebraska. The letters discuss their daily lives; local happenings in Winnebago (including the developement of the village); and various problems at the agency, including its relation with the federal government.

See the Nebraska History index and the NSHS Library catalog for various articles and publications about the Winnebago Agency and Winnebago Indians.
