The Alexander S. Clay Papers is one of the earliest collections of Congressional papers held by the Russell Library and documents the beginnings of modern, federal policy-making in the twentieth century. The collection consists of correspondence between Senator Clay and his constituents, government officials and public servants, members of his family, and others between 1900 and 1914. Most of the letters are incoming correspondence. Topics discussed in the correspondence include the appointment of postmasters and other civil servants, nominations for students seeking admission to the United States Military Academy (West Point) and Naval Academy (Annapolis), tariffs and international trade legislation, the opening of the Panama Canal, U.S. Supreme Court cases and justice appointments, women's suffrage, Prohibition, Georgia gubernatorial elections, the 1908 presidential election, expansion of rural postal delivery service, relations between the United States and the Philippines, and the 1910 federal census. Also included in the collection are letters received after Clay's death, a photograph, postage stamps, and U.S. Army records from the 31st Regiment of the Georgia Volunteer Infantry (which Clay's son, Frank Butner Clay, served in as a captain) that were collected by the Clay family.
