Biographical/Historical Notes

George Arthur Plimpton

The assembler of this collection, George Arthur Plimpton (AC 1876; 1855-1936) was a publisher, author and collector of books and manuscripts. He attended Philips Exeter Academy, Amherst College and Harvard Law School. He served as a Trustee at Amherst College (1890-95, 1900-36; president of the Board, 1907-36). His collection of manuscripts and books on the history of education was donated to Columbia University in 1936.

French and Indian War

The French and Indian War was the American phase of a worldwide, nine-year war fought between France and Great Britain, 1754-1763. It determined the control of the vast colonial territory of North America. The war began over the specific issue of whether the upper Ohio River valley was a part of the British Empire, and therefore open for trade and settlement by Virginians and Pennsylvanians, or part of the French Empire. Behind this issue, however, was the much larger question of which national culture was to dominate the heart of North America.

Despite a series of military defeats in the first four years of the war, the British and colonial American forces won important victories in 1758 and 1759 against the royal French forces and the various Native Americans allied with them. These victories include battles at Louisbourg, Fort Frontenac, Fort Carillon (Ticonderoga), Crown Point, Fort Duquesne (Pittsburgh) and Fort Niagara. The culmination came with the British victory in Quebec at the Plains of Abraham (September 13, 1759), where the French were forced to surrender. A year later, Montreal and the whole of New France had fallen, and most French and British military conflict on the North American continent had ceased. By the Treaty of Paris (February 10, 1763), France ceded its territory on mainland North America east of the Mississippi River (including Canada) to Great Britain; Spain ceded Florida to Britain but in return received the Louisiana Territory (i.e., the western half of the Mississippi River basin) and New Orleans from the French.

Jeffery Amherst

Jeffery Amherst, 1st Baron Amherst (1717-1797), first gained fame as an officer in the British Army during the French and Indian War. As commander-in-chief of the British forces in North America, he led the British to notable victories at Louisbourg, Quebec City and Montreal. From 1760 to 1763 Amherst was also the first British Governor General in the territories that eventually became Canada. (It is in honor of General Amherst that the Town of Amherst, Massachusetts was named when it was incorporated in 1759; Amherst College derives its name from the town.)

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Plimpton Collection of French and Indian War Items consists of a wide variety of manuscript and printed items which span the years 1670 to 1926. It constitutes a significant resource for research into both the military and social history of the war. The bulk of the collection focuses on the war efforts of British forces during the second half of the eighteenth century, with emphasis on the campaigns directed by General Jeffery Amherst, Commander-in-chief of the troops in North America (1758-1763), which culminated with the capture of French Canada in 1763. There are a few items going back to the early 1700s as well as more recent documentation such as photographs of battlegrounds and records of celebrative events.

The Plimpton Collection includes maps, portraits, drawings, autograph letters, original broadsides of the declarations of war, newspaper clippings, medical care bills, muster rolls, receipts of the purchase of weapons and supplies, bills for the victualling and billeting of soldiers in New England, lottery tickets, and official correspondence between army officials and British authorities. Most items are still mounted onto boards or have photographic reproductions as a result of their being in exhibition at the Lord Jeffery Inn.

History of the Collection

The Plimpton Collection of French and Indian War Items was presented to Amherst College in 1927 by publisher, author, book collector, and then President of the Board of Trustees, George Arthur Plimpton (AC 1876). According to his wishes, a considerable amount of the collection was made readily available to the public on a permanent exhibition held at the Lord Jeffery Inn (Amherst, Mass). Approximately 185 items remained on display at the Inn for decades but, when losses began to occur in the early 1970s, the collection was transferred back to the Amherst College Archives.

Processing Information

Although a printed guide to the exhibition was compiled by J.C. Long and published by the college in 1934, it no longer represents the collection in its entirety. The collection grew substantially over the years through contributions made by Plimpton's son, Francis T. P. Plimpton (AC 1922), and amounts today to over 700 items. When given to the college, the papers were accompanied by a handwritten card index with full descriptions of its items. However, in order to accommodate new acquisitions and manuscripts not described before, the collection was reorganized in 2009 into 16 series which expand on the original 13 subject classifications. For preservation purposes, every item was individually foldered and relabeled accordingly.
