Biographical/Historical note

Lucullus Virgil McWhorter was born on the upper waters of the Monongahela River in Harrison County Virginia (later West Virginia) on January 29, 1860. He was one of twelve children born to the Reverend John Minion McWhorter and Rosetta Marple McWhorter, both native Virginians. McWhorter's youthful orientation to life on the land mirrored his rejection of formal education. Summarizing his formal schooling in a biographical questionnaire, McWhorter observed that he did "Four months annual winter terms [roughly the 3rd grade] of indifferent instruction, during years of minority only." He was a voracious if highly focused reader then and throughout his life. His interest in regional history, folklore, and archaeology originated with youthful forays into the woods and countryside of West Virginia where he hunted for archaeological remains of Indians and early settlers. McWhorter's critical study of 19th century American history and his romantic appreciation of nature combined to form his view that the American Indian was the true "aboriginal American". In the course of his life he became an ardent ally and supporter of various Indian tribes, strongly sympathizing with their resentment over the often bad treatment meted out to them by early white settlers and later by the military, "Indian grafters," and the Federal bureaucracy. In his teens his father took him into the family livestock business (breeding devon cattle) in Berlin, West Virginia. Acting on the impulse for adventure and to see Indians first-hand, McWhorter set out on a lark in 1881 to trek through the coastal regions of Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. Eventually, he saw his first Indians in Oklahoma, where he nearly encountered Chief Joseph and the exiled Nez Perces.

In 1883 he returned to cattle ranching in Berlin, West Virginia, and married Ardelia Adaline Swisher on March 17th of that year. She and McWhorter had three children: Ovid Tullius (b. 1884); Iris Oresta (b. 1886); and Virgil Oneco (b. 1888). Their marriage was tragically cut short when Ardelia died in December of 1893. During the 1890s McWhorter actively maintained his interest in archaeology and Indian affairs while he continued his work as a cattle rancher. On June 22, 1895, he married C. Annie Bowman. For the next two years the McWhorter family lived in Upshur County, West Virginia, before moving to Darke County, Ohio, in 1897. McWhorter's dream of settling near Native Americans never wavered. After selling off what he could of disposable property, he and his family left Ohio, moving to the Yakima River Valley in Washington state in 1903. It was there that his involvement with Indian history and culture matured and continued throughout the remainder of his life.

In Washington state McWhorter continued ranching and building his archive of material relating to the conflicts between the Federal government and the Nez Perce and Yakima tribes. (On June 9, 1909, McWhorter became an adopted member of the Yakima Nation. His Indian moniker "Big Foot" attested to the high esteem and affection in which he was held by his Indian friends and associates.) At the same time, he gathered material relating to Indian culture and the legal status of various tribes after the conclusion of the Indian wars in the 1870s. In 1914 McWhorter met author Cristal McLeod, or Mourning Dove, a Colville (Washington) woman of mixed Indian-white descent who had worked up a draft of a semi-autobiographical novel called Co-ge-we-a, The Half Blood: A Depiction of the Great Montana Cattle Range. In a collaborative effort, McWhorter and McLeod devoted much time and expense on finally getting Cogewea published in 1927. Prior to this, McWhorter had completed work on a historical manuscript dealing with the settlement of the western region of Virginia. This title, The Border Settlers of Northwestern Virginia from 1768 to 1795, was published in 1915. In 1917 his research on the Yakima uprising of 1855 resulted in the publication of The Tragedy of the Wahk-Shum: Prelude to the Yakima Indian War, 1855-1856. McWhorter also worked to advance and secure Indian rights locally and nationally during this time, but the Washington years were especially important in terms of his labors as an amateur historian, linguist, and anthropologist (he was a member of various historical organizations, including the Washington State Historical Society).

Scope and Contents note

The Lucullus V. McWhorter Papers chiefly document his research and study of Pacific Northwest Native American history and culture (including MSS and printed material), Indian-government relations from his early years until his death in 1944, the Nez Perce War of 1877, the Yakima Indian War of 1855-1858, regional tribal conflicts, and West Virginia history. Portions of his correspondence shed light on his important relationships with author Mourning Dove and Nez Perce War veteran Yellow Wolf. The collection includes material on McWhorter's ongoing involvement in Indian affairs, chiefly from around the turn of the century until his death in 1944. An important part of the archive is the manuscript material relating to Indian history, tales, folklore, legends, customs, and languages. Some of this narrative material is transcribed (and translated) oral history testimony. The collection contains additional miscellaneous documents relating to McWhorter's involvement in the local (Yakima County) Humane Society. His personal and business correspondence deals with miscellaneous subjects. The bulk of the Native American material relates to the Nez Perces and the Yakimas at a significant transitional period in their history. McWhorter's varied if sometimes confusing documentation of the 1877 Nez Perce War and of Pacific Northwest Indian cultural practices constitutes a significant body of primary source material. His published work is considered essential to understanding Nez Perce history. Most of McWhorter's personal papers were removed by Virgil McWhorter prior to depositing his father's archive at the State College.

Span dates: 1848-1945. Primary dates: 1886-1944.

Arrangement note

The documents in the collection are arranged chronologically into nine series organized around subjects or material formats, with some overlapping in and among series. The original state of McWhorter's papers is lost. The present organization probably maintains a semblance of the original arrangement, reflecting the fact that this was McWhorter's "working" archive. Many folders exhibit a mixture of items and subjects. No hard and fast rule governed placement of documents into series. The amount of material on a given subject or the format and/or the subject indicated where files might appropriately fit into the present classification. A notable exception to this scheme is the availability of material on Indian names and vocabulary in series 2, 3, and 6 (below). Manuscript and historical research material is also scattered throughout the collection. The descriptive inventory is not completely indexed. The essential documents and subjects are described, but some items are not noted in the finding aid. In folder titles, information in brackets is supplied; capitalization of folder titles has been regularized. An * following entries indicates the availability of related photographic material in a separate historical photograph collection. This photographic material is not in this manuscript collection, but is stored as a separate collection, PC 85. Only those entries followed by an * indicate related photographic material. A list of books and other printed material owned by McWhorter is available through the WSU Libraries' online catalog by doing an "author" search on "McWhorter Collection." Some of these exhibit McWhorter's annotations.

Processing Information note

Shortly before his death in 1944, Lucullus V. McWhorter requested that his unfinished Nez Perce history manuscripts (called the "Field History") be edited and completed by competent specialists at the State College of Washington. By 1945, Virgil McWhorter had delivered the bulk of his father's archive of personal papers, manuscripts, and printed material to the State College. A completely reliable provenance for the archive cannot be established subsequent to Lucullus McWhorter's death in 1944, chiefly because much of the donated material was not initially placed in an archival repository. Nelson Ault completed the first collection inventory in 1959. Ault's guide is the basis for the present finding aid. Between 1992 and 1997, José Vargas and other staff in Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections rearranged and sorted parts of the collection. They made changes in the descriptive inventory and did some preservation of brittle materials. Final revisions to Ault's guide were done from August 1997 through February 1998 by Lisa Kliger, working under the supervision of Manuscripts Librarian Robert N. Matuozzi. These changes include implementing the present plan of arrangement, establishing chronological sequences within series and subseries, re-numbering folders and boxes, and undertaking a comprehensive revision of the index and the descriptive inventory. In 2003 one item, a revision of Chapter 31 of McWhorter's The Border Settlers of Northwestern Virginia from 1768 to 1795, was donated to MASC by Lucy Linn McKie.
