BIOGRAPHY

Enoch A. Bryan was born in Bloomington, Indiana, on May 10, 1855. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree (A.B.) from Indiana University in 1878 and a Master of Arts degree (A.M.) from the same institution in 1885. In 1893, he returned to school and received another Master of Arts degree (A.M.) from Harvard University. He had three Honorary Doctor of Law degrees bestowed: one from Michigan State University in 1907, one from Indiana University in 1920, and one from Washington State University in 1929. After beginning his career as the Superintendent of Public Schools in Grayville, Illinois, Bryan served as the President of Vincennes University in Vincennes, Indiana, from 1882 to 1893. He came to Washington State University (then Washington Agricultural College) as President in 1893 and served in that capacity until 1916. In 1916, Bryan attempted to attain the Washington State nomination for a seat in the United States Senate but was defeated. In 1917, he became the Commissioner of Education for the State of Idaho, serving until 1923. Bryan then returned to Washington State University as a professor of economic history. He served in that capacity until 1939 when he retired with the rank of Professor Emeritus. Dr. Bryan died in Pullman, Washington, on November 6, 1941.

ARRANGEMENT AND DESCRIPTION

The Enoch Albert Bryan Family Papers are arranged in 18 series. The first 15 series consist of letters by each of 15 particular persons, usually sent to a member of the E. A. Bryan family. Internally, these series are arranged chronologically. In the inventory list, the information furnished for each letter dated before January 1, 1921 is as follows: the addressee, the place from which the letter was written, the date of the letter, and a short description of the contents. The author of each letter is not noted, all being identical within each respective series. This format is varied in the last three series. Descriptions of the diverse letters of series 16, General Correspondence, also note the author of each individual letter. Information relative to items other than correspondence includes a short description and date. Letters dated after January 1, 1921, are grouped together at the end of each series in chronological order and are described as groups, rather than on an itemized basis as is done in the more significant earlier letters.

The first series, Correspondence from Enoch Albert Bryan, contains letters regarding Bryan's education, teaching, friendships, and courtship and life with Hattie Williams Bryan. The second series, Correspondence from Hattie Williams Bryan, contains letters regarding her courtship and life with Enoch Albert Bryan, friendships, family, and travels. Correspondence from Eliza Bryan, E. A. Bryan's mother, comprises the third series and deals with family matters, especially the farm, and E. A. Bryan's interests. The fourth series, Correspondence from John Bryan, E. A. Bryan's father, concerns family matters, his work as a minister, and E. A. Bryan's interests. The fifth series is Correspondence from James Albert Woodburn, a lifelong friend of E. A. Bryan. The series contains letters regarding his friendship with Bryan, education, teaching, fishing, and friends. The seventh series contains letters from Jennie Bryan, E. A. Bryan's sister, regarding the Bryan family and her studies. The eighth series contains letters from Hattie's mother, L. V. Williams, mostly to Hattie regarding the family and friends. Series nine contains letters from E. A. Bryan's brother, Joseph Bryan. The letters are about his education, work, family, and personal problems. The tenth, eleventh, and twelfth series contain letters by Jessie Williams, Hattie's sister; Elmer Williams, Hattie's brother; and Lizzie Bryan Ramsey, E. A. Bryan's sister. Series thirteen contains letters by Bertha Bryan, E. A. and Hattie's oldest daughter who died at the age of eighteen. These letters tell of the life of a young girl in the Bryan family. The fourteenth series contains letters from Arthur Bryan, E. A. and Hattie's son. Included are the letters of a child as well as a young man involved in helping in his father's business interests. Series fifteen contains letters from Gertrude Bryan, the youngest daughter of Enoch and Hattie. These are mostly letters written when she was a child. The sixteenth series, General Correspondence, is arranged alphabetically by author. This series contains correspondence from many people, chiefly family and friends, to the E. A. Bryan family members and concerns information on families, friends, travel, and E. A. Bryan's career as an educational administrator and real estate investor. Series seventeen, Oversized Materials, is in order by date and consist of correspondence for the most part. The guide includes cross reference entries for these items in the several series based on authorship, thus describing these letters in the logical sequence even though they are of a large size and require separate storage as an oversize series. Series eighteen, Related Materials, is in alphabetical order under the folder heading which is a description of the materials (i.e. calling/name cards, etc.).

The bulk of the letters in the collection are holograph signed letters in the hand of the sender.
