Summary:

Correspondence, letter books, speeches, and financial records documenting Ward's business and political life, as well as his lifelong devotion to philanthropy, the cause of reform, and the patronage of artists.  Includes papers, ca. 1683-1817, and genealogical notes pertaining to the Ward family; commonplace book of Anna Eliza Bruen, ca. 1823-1824; extensive correspondence with Nicholas Longworth (1782-1863), the Cincinnati horticulturalist and winegrower, between 1841 and 1863; and records of the Montclair Railway Association, 1867-1876, primarily general correspondence of its president, Julius H. Pratt, and of its general superintendent, Henry C. Spaulding.   Marcus L. Ward became a director of the National State Bank in 1846 and continued throughout his life to be active in the business life of his native Newark.  He joined the Republican Party in 1856 and four years later served as a delegate to the national convention which nominated Abraham Lincoln for the presidency.  During the Civil War he established Marcus L. Ward's Office for Soldier's Business - a private bureau which secured soldier's pay and transmitted it to their families.  He also founded the Ward U.S. Military Hospital in Newark, a forerunner of the Soldier's Home, and was chairman of the Public Aid Committee of Newark.  Ward's active interest in the welfare of Civil War veterans and their families continued during the years of Reconstruction.  While Governor of New Jersey, 1866-1869, Ward served as Chairman of the Republican National Committee, and as Chairman and Treasurer of the National Union Committee.  Finally, he served as a U.S. Congressman, 1873-1875.  Included are letters of:
