MS008.20.05. Reference notes
Subseries E, Reference notes, undated, contains Mathematics Notes, Military Tactics Notes and Bible Notes, and provides a level of intellectual access to subjects of personal and professional interest to Silas Casey. All are undated. Casey's interest in mathematics and algebra is reflected here, as well as in numerous letters in the correspondence series with colleague Bengt Alvord and later with his grandson, Thomas Lincoln Casey. The notes on tactics relate to preparations for the publication of manuals on infantry tactics. His best known manual, published in 1862, was used by both Union and Confederate armies during the Civil War. The notes in this sub-series are surprisingly few, and there are no manuscript copies of the manuals. The bible notes contain copies of biblical quotation with no further commentary.

MS008.20.06. Military affairs
Subseries F, Military affairs, 1816-1869, undated, contains a wide range of material, including appointments, commissions, orders, correspondence, reports, receipts, journals, maps, printed matter, and news clippings. Letters of appointment and six parchment commissions are included in this series. Presidential signatures on the commissions include those of Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, James K. Polk, Franklin Pierce, and Abraham Lincoln. The date span is 1836 to 1863. Orders cover the years 1836 to 1864. Correspondence sent consists of a letterbook of requisitions and receipts from Garey's Ferry, East Florida, dated 1838-1839. Correspondence received, dated 1838-[1855] and 1861-1869, is of a military nature and deals with assignments, troop movements, Indian affairs and battles in Mexico and at Fair Oakes. Additional correspondence includes letters retained by Silas Casey for reference. They include letters, to and from others, about the expedition against the Coquille Indians, the occupation of San Juan Island in Puget Sound, and a letter protesting the occupation by the Governor of Vancouver Island. A later group of letters concerns the board of examiners reviewing the manual on military tactics. These letters date to 1851-1859, and 1863-1867 respectively. Casey also retained copies of letters by others recommending him for promotions. These letters are dated 1842, 1856-1857. A group of reports contains Casey's eye witness reports of the Battle of Mexico, 1847, and the Battle of Seven Pines, 1862, also known as the Battle of Fair Oaks. Also included are reports of the evacuation of White House, Virginia and investigations of an incident regarding a colored sentinel. This series also includes a journal bound with thread, recording a six week scouting assignment in Florida. It is undated, but was most likely written in 1839. An undated manuscript copy of bill to the Senate and House of Representatives regarding the addition of regiments to the United States Army for colored troops; during the Civil War, Casey presided over the board of examiners charged with choosing officers to lead colored troops, so it is likely that he may have had some interest in this bill. A collection of maps contains four small, hand-drawn maps, one of the Coquille River, Oregon Territory, the others of Civil War sites. The first, dated, 1851, traces the route of Lt. Colonel Silas Casey's Command along the Coquille River. The second shows the approximate position of the Army of the Potomac on July 2, 1862. The other two, which are undated and untitled, show General Wessell's Headquarters near Live Oak Bridge and pickets from Woodyard Ford to Little River Pike. Finally, this series contains a miscellaneous assortment of items dating from 1845 to 1874, including a pamphlet listing the officers of Major General Winfield Scott engaged in the Battle of Mexico, 1848, and a copy of the Army & Navy Journal, October 31, 1874, describing the Battle of Fair Oaks, also described in a news clipping.

One is to President James K. Polk. Subseries B, Other papers, 1830-ca. 1861, undated, contains two receipts from Thomas Lincoln Casey; a 1850 deed for a lot of land in San Diego, California; two poems, either by Abby, or more likely unattributed copies of some published work. One poem is dated 1830, the year of Abby's marriage to Silas Casey.

MS008.38. Professional papers of Thomas Lincoln Casey (1831-1896): Washington Monument, Washington, D.C.
Professional papers
Series XXXVIII, Professional papers of Thomas Lincoln Casey (1831-1896): Washington Monument, Washington, D.C., 1848-1895, undated (#40.1-42.30), contains professional correspondence; notes; memoranda; sketches; work diaries; reports; engineering calculations; test results for building materials; financial expenditures and estimates; receipts; contracts; printed material; drawings/ prints; a poem about the Monument; and photographs; relating to Casey's work on the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C. The series also contains the papers of Robert Mills, the original architect assigned to the Monument project; and the papers of George W. Davis and Bernard R. Green, two of Casey's assistants. The papers comprising this series were previously separated out from the larger collection of the Thomas Lincoln Casey's papers (now Series XXII), prior to the 2013-2014 grant project. The creation of an "artificial" project series was intended to better facilitate the needs of researchers. Materials comprising the series were selected based on content and in conjunction with the time span of 1848 to 1895; records mentioning the Monument or appearing to relate to the Monument project, as well as fitting the appropriate time frame, were removed from what is now Series XXII and placed into what is now Series XXXVIII. (Please note that not all papers relating to the Monument project may have been incorporated into Series XXXVIII.) See Series XXXII, Series XXXIX, and Series XL for related material. Additional reading on the Washington Monument may be found in the 1984 publication by Louis Torres: To the Immortal Name and Memory of George Washington: the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the Construction of the Washington Monument. The series is arranged in ten subseries.

MS008.38.01. Papers of Robert Mills
Subseries A, Papers of Robert Mills, 1848-1854, undated (#40.1-40.5), contains the papers of Robert Mills, the original architect assigned to work on the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C. The papers include contracts, estimates, expenditures, reports, and machinery complications regarding marble cutting. The contracts include documents regarding the obelisk and A.D. Bishop; Roach and the hauling of stone; and Alex R. [? Batelen] and the delivery of cement. The estimates focus on A.D. Bishop and the foundation of the obelisk and William Dougherty and the Monument's shaft. Expenditures pertain to the foundation and gearing by William Dougherty (early superintendent of construction). The reports are Robert Mills' plans regarding construction and materials; height of the foundations; and the strength and scaling of the marble (the undated report is signed by James Renwick, Jr., as well as by Robert Mills). The machinery complications concern William Dougherty and the complications with the marble cutting.

MS008.39. Professional papers of Thomas Lincoln Casey (1831-1896): State, War and Navy Building, Washington, D.C.
Professional papers
Series XXXIX, Professional papers of Thomas Lincoln Casey (1831-1896): State, War and Navy Building, Washington, D.C., 1871-1889, undated (#43.1-46.42), contains professional correspondence; official reports; memoranda; drawings; notes; contracts; estimate and expenditure records; engineering calculations; financial accounts; printed material; etc.; relating to Casey's work on the State, War and Navy Building in Washington, D.C. A sizable portion of the series is comprised of Bernard R. Green's (assistant to Casey) correspondence and reports to Casey, which also contain commentary on other projects under Casey's direction. Green's documents are noted as being detailed, lively, and discursive, in contrast to the documents submitted by Green's deputy, E. Sutherland. The papers comprising this series were previously separated out from the larger collection of the Thomas Lincoln Casey's papers (now Series XXII), prior to the 2013-2014 grant project. The creation of an "artificial" project series was intended to better facilitate the needs of researchers. (Please note that not all papers relating to the State, War and Navy Building project may have been incorporated into Series XXXIX.) See Series XXXII, Series XXXVIII, and Series XL for related material. The series is arranged alphabetically by record type, and thereunder chronologically.

MS008.40. Professional papers of Thomas Lincoln Casey (1831-1896): Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.
Professional papers
Series XL, Professional papers of Thomas Lincoln Casey (1831-1896): Library of Congress, Washington, D.C., 1888-1896, undated (#47.1-48.13), contains progress reports; financial records (includes estimates; proposals; expenditures; documents regarding materials and services; and related); a commission from the U.S. Treasury Department for the Library of Congress to oversee expenditures; employment records; Congressional recommendations for hiring (includes names of persons hired, turned down, and/ or dropped/ retained for service); a typescript of the "Law Relating to the Building of the Library of Congress;" lists of sculptures and other artisans; blueprints and sketches; photographs and photograph albums; clippings; and obituaries for Casey. The papers comprising this series were previously separated out from the larger collection of the Thomas Lincoln Casey's papers (now Series XXII), prior to the 2013-2014 grant project. The creation of an "artificial" project series was intended to better facilitate the needs of researchers (Please note that not all papers relating to the Monument project may have been incorporated into Series XL.) See Series XXXII, Series XXXVIII, and Series XXXIX for related material. The series is arranged alphabetically by record type, then by topic and/or chronologically. The progress reports are comprised of letters to Casey from superintendent engineer Bernard R. Green, superintendent engineer. The 1889 reports include an annulled contract for furnishing broken stone. The 1890 reports includes a letter from Green referring to the laying of the cornerstone with little fanfare and noting that architect Pelz was absent. The 1891 August reports comment on the deteriorating physical and mental health of Pelz; the arrival of large quantities of material; plans for the roof ventilation; stone from Hallowell, Maine; and Pelz's plans for arrangement of the dentils in the window pediments. The 1891 September reports comment on Pelz's return to the project and Pelz's improved health. The 1892 reports discuss progress on octagon bookstacks, the "Marble Question," and a dispute between two men named Batterson, father and son; the two letters regarding the Batterson matter are from Green or Green's deputy, E. Sutherland. The 1893 reports discuss gilding the dome and the esthetic effects of the bright versus painted surfaces; granite capitals; the use of foreign rather than domestic marble in the Congressional Library; and Green's visits with Edward Pearce Casey (1864-1940) regarding hall designs. The 1883 reports discuss work progress; the arrival of Bissell's bronze statue of Kent from [? Burran] Brothers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; pending meetings with Edward Pearce Casey (1864-1940) in New York City, New York; an on-site accident involving a boy falling through the skylight scaffold; and other related work such as flooring, tiling, woodwork, mosaics, the main stairway, statues and ornaments, etc.; the reports are sent by both Green or Sutherland. The lists of sculptors and other artisans are undated and may have been compiled after 1895. The lists are typescript manuscripts with annotations, which provide the location of each piece of work, date of offer, subject matter, date of acceptance, date of order, amount paid, and date of acceptance of sketches with remarks. Also included with the lists are minutes of a meeting with Casey, St. Gaudens, J.Q. Ward, and O.L. Warner; the meeting was held on January 26, 1894. The annotated blueprints are of archways, ornaments, and the main entrance porch. The sketches include an unsigned "Clock for 2nd Tier Alcove, Reading Room," and plans for window openings, the main entrance doors, curbs, and a roadway. Photographic material includes a grouping of ten mounted photographs: Reading Room, Stairway, Grand Stair Hall, History Mantel, Bronze Door, and the Pavilion of the Arts and Sciences. Most of the photographs are inscribed on the left: Smithmeyer and Pelz, Architects and on the right: Edw. Pearce Casey, Architect. Some of the photographs also have numbers applied to the mat with an adhesive. A photograph album containing approximately fifty cyanotype views, plus some sepia or albumen prints (bound with clippings regarding the building and appearance of the Library of Congress building) are also included in the series. The album depicts the sculptural and painted ornamentation of the Library of Congress Building as originally planned and/or altered in 1894 and 1895; most are annotated in red. Note: In March of 1991, John Hackett from the office of the Architect of the Capitol found the signature of Edward Pearce Casey (1864-1940) throughout the album. Based on Hackett's extensive knowledge regarding the construction of the Library of Congress, Hackett believes that the album belongs to Edward Pearce Casey (1864-1940) and not to Thomas Lincoln Casey (1831-1896). The appended clippings, regarding the Library of Congress Building, may indicate that Edward Pearce Casey (1864-1940) was hired to carry out the interior design of the Building following Edward's graduation from the Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1892 and in response to architect Pelz's apparent "mental breakdown." See #47.4 (Progress reports: August-September, 1892) for related material. Note: See #122.1-122.2 for related material [scrapbooks of Edward Pearce Casey (1864-1940)].

The primary senders/recipients of the correspondence include President Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822-1893; president, 1877-1881); First Lady Lucy (Webb) Hayes (1831-1889); Webb Hayes (1856-1934), son of Rutherford B. and Lucy Hayes; and Thomas Lincoln Casey (1831-1896). The majority of the letters focus on Casey acting as liaison for the Hayes family, while the First Family engaged in purchasing Haviland China for the White House from the Haviland China Company. Casey also interceded on behalf of the First Family for additional White House purchases (including a piano) and repairs. The correspondence between Casey and the Hayes family continued after the end of the Hayes administration. Other correspondence include invitations to dinner; an invitation to a statue unveiling in Ohio; workmen requests; flowers sent to Lucy Hayes; thank you notes; payment requests; Hayes family life in Ohio; and a condolence letter regarding the death of Lucy Hayes. Also included in the series is an article regarding the misuse of funds by Hayes, while in Office and Casey's response letter to the Congressional investigation; a clipping relating to the purchase of a piano for the White House; and guest lists, seating arrangement charts, and place cards for White House dinner parties.
