Biography

Robert D. Aldrich (1920-1983), born in Concord, Michigan, worked for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Throughout his life, he maintained and cultivated an interest in the people, organizations, and history of his hometown of Concord. He collected widely: manuscript, printed, and photographic materials, anything that related to Concord or to western Jackson County in general.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The Robert D. Aldrich collection consists of materials--manuscript, printed, and photographic--documenting the history of Concord, Michigan, in western Jackson County. The collection spans the period from the arrival of the first settlers in 1831 to the 1980s. There are a few items dating back into the eighteenth century (as early as 1783) since the papers of some pioneer families predate their arrival in Concord. The bulk of the collection, though, falls in the period since the Civil War.

The collection documents every facet of life in Concord. Included are the papers of numerous Concord citizens consisting of personal correspondence, diaries, account books and newspaper clippings about them. In addition, Aldrich collected the records of various Concord businesses and organizations, as well as some church, school, and governmental records.

The collection has been divided into two series: Manuscript and Printed Materials, and Visual Materials. Both series are arranged alphabetically either by personal name or name of organization, or by general subject area, such as Circus, Underground Railroad, etc.

Manuscript and printed materials [series]

The Manuscript and printed materials series is arranged alphabetically either by personal name or name of organization, or by general subject area, such as Circus, Underground Railroad, etc.

Under the name of an individual in the Manuscript and Printed Materials series, the researcher might find biographical and genealogical information, marriage announcements, newspaper obituaries, and a scattering of correspondence. For some, there is more material, such as diaries for Hiram K. Billings, L. C. Encke, and William J. Piper, and scrapbooks for June Wallace Cory and Sarah Viola Keeler Tuthill. Of some interest are the files of Austin Pomeroy who served as highway commissioner and Jackson County surveyor, and papers about two Concord citizens who achieved national prominence, George Arthur Malcolm and Senator Charles E. Townsend.

Organizational materials are among the most extensive portions of the Aldrich collection. These include account books, inventories, legal papers, minutes, and business correspondence for such firms as the Concord Telephone Company, the Concord General Store, the Concord Milling Company, the Farmers State Bank, and the Aldrich Insurance Company. The collections for Lewis Keeler and Alfred J. Paddock include both personal papers and records of their businesses.

Governmental records include township assessment rolls and various files relating to village government. School records are extensive and include a complete record of District No. 6 from September 1866 to July 1911, including records for the school alumni association and memorabilia for nearly every school year from 1879 to 1952.

Under the names of churches, the researcher will find histories, membership rolls, subscription lists, and collected miscellanea. Churches represented include the Methodist, Presbyterian, and Universalist.

Among the various social and fraternal organizations represented in the collection are a scattering of records for such groups as the Concord Temple Association, the Pleasure Club, and the local American Legion.
