Mudd, Richard D.
Papers
Scope: The Richard D. Mudd Papers contain the extensive research files of Richard D. Mudd, whose grandfather, Dr. Samuel A. Mudd, set the leg of Abraham Lincoln's assassin John Wilkes Booth as Booth attempted to escape the scene of the crime through southern Maryland. Samuel A. Mudd went to prison for setting Booth's leg, but Richard D. Mudd decades later contended that his grandfather was simply doing his duty as a medical doctor. Although he was released from prison by President Andrew Johnson, Samuel A. Mudd was never fully cleared of assisting Booth. The case generated controversy when it occurred, and some still find it controversial today. For his part, Richard D. Mudd believed his grandfather was innocent of any complicity in the assassination, so he researched a large number of aspects of the Lincoln assassination to prove his innocence. Representing his research findings, this collection consists mostly of correspondence he compiled with historians and other researchers, newspaper clippings, and published articles. Together, these materials provide detailed secondary source material about Samuel A. Mudd and the Lincoln assassination.

Mullan, John
Papers
Scope: The John Mullan Papers contain documents generated and collected by John Mullan (1830-1909), pioneer, military engineer, and attorney, best known for constructing the Mullan Road in the American West. This collection primarily covers his later years as a Washington, D.C. attorney representing California, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington Territory in claims cases against the federal government. Correspondence with high-ranking officials in those states and with state and federal legislators is prevalent in the Mullan Papers, and the Indian War claims and War of the Rebellion claims represent major topics of discussion. A handful of earlier documents relate to his work on the Mullan Road. Some of Mullan's personal legal documents, including his will and an inventory of his household effects in Washington, D.C., are also retained. Mullan family material is present, too, especially items associated with the Flather family and its gifts to Georgetown University. A host of printed materials, such as drafts of Congressional bills, is preserved. Finally, a number of family photographs, including about 20 of Mullan himself, are contained.
