Copley Amory papers

Identifier: MS-417


The Amory papers consist almost entirely of family correspondence, and are arranged alphabetically by the name of the writer. The World War I letters of Copley Amory, Jr. and his two brothers, both of who were seriously wounded, are included in the collection, as are the letters written by their grandfather, Henry Sturgis Russell, during the Civil War. Captured early in the War, Russell was sent to Libby Prison. His account of his stay there, and subsequent parole, sheds light on early conditions in the Confederate prison.
