Biographical Note:

Albert Haller Tracy was born June 17, 1793, in Norwich, Connecticut. He began the study of medicine with his father, but soon abandoned it to pursue a career in law. He was admitted to the bar in 1815, and settled in Buffalo, where he became a leading attorney. However, because of his absorption in politics, he seldom took on legal cases. His ability as a jurist was exhibited when he was in the New York State Senate (1830-1838) during the time when that body was also the Court for the Correction of Errors, the highest tribunal at the time in the state. He is said to have written and delivered many opinions which showed legal knowledge of the highest order.

Tracy aligned himself politically with the Anti-Masons, and later with the Whigs, working with Millard Fillmore, Thurlow Weed, William H. Seward, John C. Spencer, as well as with non-New Yorkers he met during his time in Congress (1819-1825), and in his work in connection with national party conventions which nominated its presidential candidates in 1824, 1828, 1832, and 1836.  Tracy also distinguished himself during his time in Congress as an expert in government financial affairs. For a time he served as chairman of the committee which oversaw the operations and expenditures of the Treasury Department. After his defeat in 1839 as a Whig candidate for the United States Senate, Tracy refused to be a candidate for public office or to accept any appointment to such, even a cabinet post. However, his advice continued to be sought.

Tracy was also involved in business and cultural affairs of Buffalo. He was one of nine original members of the Buffalo Harbor Company, organized in 1819; a member of the first board of directors of the branch of the United States Bank, established in Buffalo in 1826; one of the incorporators in 1846 of the University of Buffalo; and president of the Buffalo Water Works Company from 1855-1859.  He died in Buffalo, September 19, 1859.

Scope and Content Note:

The collection consists chiefly of letters addressed to Albert H. Tracy from 1815 to 1857, concerning economic conditions and matters of politics and government in New York State and the United States.  

Among the correspondents are Millard Fillmore, Martin Van Buren, Nicholas Biddle, William Henry Seward, Thurlow Weed, Silas Wright, DeWitt Clinton, William L. Marcy, Lewis Cass, John McLean, Francis Granger, and John C. Spencer. In particular, many of these letters relate to Tracy’s own career in the United States House of Representatives and the New York State Senate. Many of the letters also concern Tracy’s involvement with the Anti-Masonic Party and later with the Whig Party.

A number of letters concern presidential election campaigns, especially the 1832 race between Henry Clay and Andrew Jackson. Presidential politics in general were often discussed, especially in regards to the policies of John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, John Tyler, and James Polk.

Tracy and his correspondents also wrote about the economic conditions of New York State and the United States. The National Bank controversy and legislation related to banks and financial institutions were the chief topics of discussion with Nicholas Biddle, Rufus King, Silas Wright, and John C. Spencer.

The collection also includes a few copies and drafts of letters Tracy sent to others; letters sent to his wife, including one from writer and “woman of the age” Lydia H. Sigourney, and a letter from Mary Delano, wife of author Alonzo Delano.

Letters are generally arranged alphabetically by correspondent, with 231 items being letters addressed to Albert H. Tracy. The remaining 27 items include letters written by Tracy, letters addressed to his wife and possibly other family members and relative.  Unpublished typewritten transcripts for most original documents in the collection are found in Box 4.
