Biographical Note

James E. Edmonds, was the son of Major and Mrs. J.E. Edmonds of Rosedale, Mississippi. Major Edmonds was a 1854 graduate of the University of Mississippi. James E. Edmonds also attended the University, and a significant number of letters in the collection were written during his tenure as a student between 1896 and 1900. Edmonds first entered the University in the fall of 1896, at the age of 16. Although Edmonds attended the University for four years, neither the Alumni Directory nor the Historical Catalogue list his as a graduate. During this years at the University, Edmonds was affiliated with the Hermaean Society and the Blackstone Society. He studied law, and played on both the baseball and football teams. Perhaps his greatest distinction as a student is his work as the illustrator on the first "Ole Miss" yearbook, printed in 1897. Edmonds was a talented artist, as the sketches he included in his letters will attest.

After leaving the University in 1900, Edmonds briefly returned to the Delta, but by 1902 he was working as a newspaper correspondent/artist in New Orleans, Louisiana. During this time he married Rosa Warfield of Natchez, a girl to whom he had been introduced by one of his college friends.

In 1902, Edmonds and Rosa had their first, and only mentioned, child, James E. Edmonds, Jr. In 1918, James Jr. was enrolled in the Northwestern Military and Naval Academy in Walworth, Wisconsin. At some point in the late 1910s (1917-1918), James Edmonds, Sr., became affiliated with the United States Army, for his letters are sent from military bases in Kentucky and Oklahoma. The capacity in which he was associated with the military, whether as an enlisted man or some other position, is unclear from the letters. While a student at the University of Mississippi, however, James had looked forward to the possibility of participating in an American conflict with Spain and was greatly chagrined when his parents refused their consent. One can assume that perhaps he met the American entry into the first World War with equal ardor and enlisted.

In 1924, James Jr. married a woman named Rosaleen in New York. Almost immediately after the wedding James Jr. and Rosaleen left for Paris, where James Jr. was employed by the Paris Branch of the Guaranty Trust Company of New York. In 1925, Rosaleen gave birth to a daughter, whom they named Roseanne.

Scope and Content Note

Edmonds was also a very informative and interesting correspondent. The letters he wrote while at the University cover a wide array of topics. He discusses University affairs: professors, students, fraternities, athletics, course work and, of course, production of the yearbooks. He also chronicles local events of interest, such as an outbreak of typhoid fever at Union Female College. National and international issues also did not escape his interest. He writes of the 1896 election and local reaction to the defeat of William Jennings Bryan, whom he supported, and he writes passionately of the oncoming of the Spanish-American War. Some letters are illustrated, which is noted in the description.

James E. Edmonds' letters from New Orleans are equally interesting, covering topics ranging from squalid conditions in charity hospitals to the outbreak of Yellow Fever in 1905.

The collection contains a significant number of letters written by James Jr. to his parents during his time at the Northwestern Military and Naval Academy in Walworth, Wisconsin, circa 1918. Around the same time, J.E. Edmonds' letters are sent from military bases in Kentucky and Oklahoma.

Later letters written from James Jr. and Rosaleen to his parents (James E. & Rosa) describe their life in Paris. Rosaleen's labor and delivery were complicated and the letters written to James' parents from the American Hospital in Paris, while not tremendously detailed, are useful for the information regarding surgery and obstetrical practices in the early twentieth century.
