E.O.C. Ord II Subject Files

Identifier: 1261

Series-level Scope and Content Note

Contains correspondence, manuscripts, receipts, and printed materials originally kept in files by Edward Otho Cresap Ord II. Of interest: documents relating to Ord's business transactions and land holdings in Arizona and ample correspondence between Ord and Mexican military figure Geronimo Trevino, mostly regarding the health of Geronimo Trevino y Ord, who was Ord's nephew, but with some discussion of the Mexican Revolution. Arranged alphabetically across subjects and chronologically within subjects. Every effort was made to preserve the original order of Ord's own filing system. Documents in this series date between 1879 and 1918.
