INTRODUCTION

The Papers of John R. McLane and the McLane Family were a 1983 gift to the Dartmouth College Library from the children of John R. and Elisabeth B. McLane. A prominent New Hampshire lawyer, John R. McLane was also a Dartmouth College alumnus, a trustee, class agent for the Alumni Fund, and member of the Alumni Council for several years. The McLane papers are an important addition to the Library's holdings on outstanding alumni.

John Roy McLane was born January 7, 1886, in Milford, New Hampshire. He graduated from Dartmouth College in 1907, and as a Rhodes Scholar attended Oxford University in 1909. He received his law degree from Harvard in 1912, and opened a law firm in Manchester, New Hampshire the same year. He married Elisabeth Bancroft in 1915; they were the parents of five children.

Always interested in community service, McLane helped found the New Hampshire Children's Aid Society in 1914, and served as Treasurer until 1953, when he became President of the Society. He was a trustee of St. Paul's School in Concord, and of Dartmouth College from 1926-1956, Chairman of the New Hampshire State Board of Arbitration and Conciliation, Justice of the Peace and Notary Public for many years, and served on the Board of Directors of the National Life Insurance Company. An avid skiier and hiker, McLane also found time to travel and to be active in the church. He died in 1969.

The McLane collection occupies 8 boxes, or approximately 10.0 linear feet of shelf space. Materials include correspondence, diaries, pamphlets, clippings, financial information, deeds, photographs, newsletters, memorabilia and personal items. Some of the material is genealogical in nature, and there are smaller groups of papers within the collection that have to do with the lives and careers of family members other than John R. McLane. For example, one group of materials details the career of Dr. Charles P. Bancroft, alienist, and for over twenty-five years head of the New Hampshire Asylum for the Insane. A smaller section of the papers has to do with John McLane, manufacturer, father of John R. McLane, and for a short time, Governor of New Hampshire.

Items of particular interest include letters written by Miriam Bancroft Jenkins from China during the Communist rebellion of the late 1920's, and the McLane family newsletter, Clatter of the Clan. The latter item provides an “inside look” at the activities of the McLane family and many Hanover/Dartmouth personalities during World War II. The diaries of John R. McLane are especially important to the collection; they provide an excellent overview of the legal, political and community activities McLane engaged in during his long career.

No restrictions have been placed on the use of any of the materials in the collection. Further information concerning John R. McLane and the McLane Family may be found in Special Collections in the Dartmouth College Library.

In 1992, the family presented an additional six cartons (9.0 linear feet) of Judge McLane's papers. These can be found as Boxes 8-13 of the collections. This addition contains a rich body of materials relating to McLane's activities as a Dartmouth Alumnus and includes Trustee material from 1938 to 1955, Dartmouth Outing Club papers from 1936 to 1954, development information from 1955 to 1959, and an important run of correspondence relating to Dartmouth from 1938 to 1956.
