Boxes 2 - 3, 1 medal

Scope and Content Note

The papers of Joseph Judson Dimock (Jr.) consist of correspondence, material relating to his collection of pistols and revolvers, family photographs and glass plate negatives, clippings and personal items. Correspondence (1875 - 1891) is from Dimock's aunt Jennie and from his grandfather, Joseph Warner Dimock, with the exception of three letters to Dimock concerning family genealogy. These letters are filed in chronological order and are followed by the inventories, notes, illustrated catalogs, letters, photographs, and one blueprint relating to Dimock's collection of pistols. Most of the original glass plate negatives found in the series were apparently made by Dimock; other photographic prints were made by friends and New York studios. Personal items include books given to Dimock by his mother and grandfather and an address book and a copy (ca. 1880) of Admiral Farragut's general order #10 (1864) to the D.S. flagship Hartford. A memorial leaflet published upon Dimock's death gives biographical information about the Dimock family.
