Archival History The Dabney H. Maury Collection contains correspondence and ephemera of Dabney Herndon Maury (1822-1900), held in the Eleanor S. Brockenbrough Library. The vast majority of the library's holdings are postwar, acquired in the late 20th century as a donation from Maury's direct descendants. This correspondence covers Maury's work with the Southern Historical Society, letters to former President Jefferson Davis and his family, and family concerns. Maury's gregarious nature is apparent in the breadth of the correspondence. Letters to Maury include those from Ulysses S. Grant, Grover Cleveland, Jefferson Davis, Jubal Early, and Joseph E. Johnston. Some of the latest correspondence is from distinguished historians Dr. Douglas S. Freeman and Bruce Catton to Maury family members. Wartime holdings include several copies of Maury's Farewell Address of May 1865 and letter-press book of April-May 1865, later converted to a postwar journal.
