In addition to correspondence, there are various proposals submitted for furnishing the House & Senate, providing labor & material to do the work according to the plans & specifications in the alterations & additions. Lastly, there is a blueprint drawing of a water cooler & stand and double lockers ("W" folder).

Applications for pardon, bills and receipts, outgoing telegrams, quarterly reports, recommendations, text books, and Thanksgiving proclamations comprise a significant portion of this series. The applications for pardon are filed alphabetically and contain petitions, correspondence, prison records, & court records.

Series IV. Personal Papers, 1895-1906 (bulk 1902-1905).
Boxes: 29-53
Extent: 24 boxes.

The Personal Papers series is housed in twenty-four archival boxes and is arranged in two subseries. Subseries have been designated for Chronological Files & Subject Files. This series mainly consists of files transferred from a collection of Montague records donated by Elizabeth Hoskins Montague (Acc. 22001) and transferred from the Library of Virginia's Private Papers Section. Although it's labeled "Personal Papers" much of the series documents the work of Andrew J. Montague in his official capacity as governor of Virginia between 1902 and 1906. The correspondence in this series should be researched in conjunction with the correspondence found in the previous series.

Arranged chronologically, then alphabetically by correspondent.

  • Subseries B: Subject Files, 1895-1906.
    3 boxes.

    The Subject Files subseries is housed in three archival boxes and is arranged in alphabetical order. This subseries contains correspondence, legislation, news clippings, receipts, telegrams, voter lists, and other sundry items. The campaign material file includes news clippings regarding Montague's failed attempt to win Thomas Martin's seat in the U.S. Senate. In addition, this file contains a few pieces of legislation and other documents related to Martin's record as senator. Similarly, there are numerous lists of Democratic voters arranged by county that were compiled for Montague's campaign. Noteworthy is a published directory for Louisa County in 1905. Especially prevalent in this subseries are files regarding clemency requests for J. Samuel McCue, the former mayor of Charlottesville who was hanged in 1905 for the murder of his wife. These files are arranged alphabetically by correspondent and include petitions, newspaper clippings, and McCue's published petition for a rehearing in the Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia. Telegrams from Montague or D.A. Ritchie, his secretary, are also found in this subseries. These files are arranged alphabetically, then chronologically, and include regrets and acceptances for appearances or speaking engagements, sympathy messages, and others. Lastly, there are receipts for various expenditures kept by Montague a few years before and during his governorship. These receipts document purchases for clothing, household goods, groceries, livery, utilities, memberships, and other items.
