Biography

James B. Angell was a college president and diplomat. Born in Scituate, Rhode Island on January 7, 1829, Angell was a graduate of Brown University, class of 1849. After a period of travel and study, he joined the faculty of Brown soon after receiving his A.M. in 1853 as professor of modern languages. Angell married Sarah Caswell in 1855, daughter of Brown faculty and future president, Alexis Caswell. He resigned in 1860 to assume the editorship of the Providence Journal, a newspaper he had been writing for since 1858. As editor, Angell was especially interested in topics relating to international law and politics.

In 1866, Angell resigned to accept the presidency of the University of Vermont. In 1869, he was offered the presidency of the University of Michigan. After initially refusing the offer, Angell, after more than a year of negotiation with the regents, accepted the offer to come to Ann Arbor on February 7, 1871. He would remain as president until his retirement in 1909.

Because of his expertise in international affairs, Angell was called upon for occasional diplomatic service. He was minister to China from 1880 to 1881 and a member of a commission of three to negotiate a new immigration treaty which limited but did not absolutely prohibit the entry and residence of Chinese laborers into the United States. Angell remained in China until October 1881 and resumed his academic duties in February 1882.

In 1887, President Grover Cleveland selected Angell to serve on the Anglo-American International Commission on Canadian Fisheries. Later in Cleveland's second administration, Angell was named chairman of the Canadian-American Commission on Deep Waterways from Lakes to Sea. Angell's last diplomatic venture was as U.S. Minister to Turkey, serving from 1897 to 1898.

Angell died April 1, 1916.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The Angell papers documents Angell's academic and diplomatic career. There is extensive material on all phases of University of Michigan business, particularly Angell's contacts with the state legislature, the board of regents, faculty relations, and the various schools, colleges, departments and divisions. Much of the correspondence and the Angell diaries relate to his diplomatic missions, higher education in the United States, and family matters.

Correspondence 1851-1916 [series] (8.7 linear feet)

The Correspondence series is the largest portion of the collection and dates from 1851 to 1916. The series pertains to all phases of Angell's career, university, diplomatic, and personal. Angell corresponded with a wide range of educators, diplomats, and politicians. Two folders of note, titled "Miscellaneous" and "Regarding death of Sarah Angell" contain letters to James from local organizations and university departments offering their condolences for the passing of his wife. These folders also contain a number of obituaries from Michigan and Rhode Island newspapers describing some of Sarah's major accomplishments.

The series also contains a card index to most of Angell's correspondence (Boxes 16-17). Appended to this finding aid is a selective name inventory to these correspondents listing dates of letters. The library also has an extensive (six volume), though incomplete, calendar to the Angell Correspondence series. This calendar consists of fairly detailed summarizations of the individual letters in the collection. The researcher should also note that the correspondence is primarily incoming only with very few copies of Angell's responses.

The Asia Library of the University of Michigan has obtained microfilm copies of Angell's correspondence written while serving in China. The originals of the microfilm are located in the National Archives in Washington D.C.
