Acquisition Information

Estate of James O'Hara Cazenove, 1984.


Biographical/Historical Information

The Cazenove family came to America from Geneva, Switzerland in the late 18th century and settled in Alexandria in 1797. The family, which was known for its shipping and importing business, married into the Lee family. James O. Cazenove (1880-1971), of 3756 Seminary Road, was the last of that name to live in Alexandria. His brother, Louis A. DeCazenove reverted to the use of "De" which had been dropped by the family when they came to this country. James and Louis were the sons of Louis A. Cazenove (1851-1925).

Scope and Content

The bulk of this collection deals with James O'Hara Cazenove's financial investments. Approximately half of the correspondence relates to legal/financial matters concerning the estate of J.O. Cazenove's father and brother, as well as his various mining investments. Some of the more interesting pieces are patents and designs for mixers and beaters, for which J.O. Cazenove was awarded patents between 1921 and 1923. His correspondents include William S. Barnes, Edmond W. Brown, Mary Lee Castleman, Carrie Stuart Davis, Jesse Larrabee, George Oldham, Edith Patton Cazenove, Ruth Y. Stuart, and Fred Stedman.

Among the items related to Louis A. DeCazenove are his thesis, "Temperature Investigation in the Priestman Oil Engine," and a 1900 book called Songs of Cornell. DeCazenove's material also includes two scrapbooks: a 1898 to 1902 scrapbook about Cornell University, and a 1902 to 1925 scrapbook about Cornell University, the Dupont Company, cruises to Cuba and the West Indies, trips to Charleston, South Carolina, and other places, and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Arrangement

Correspondence is arranged alphabetically and chronologically. Financial documents are by subject and chronological. Legal documents are chronological. Louis A. DeCazenove materials are by form.
