Materials relating to Willie Person Mangum (1792-1861), a lawyer, Superior Court judge, Whig Party leader, U.S. representative and senator of Orange County, N.C., include family and political correspondence and printed political materials. Of note are a short 1841 letter from Henry Clay and an 1844 letter in which Mangum discussed Whig politics. Papers, 1851-1890, relate chiefly to A. W. Mangum (1834-1890) documenting his life as a student at Randolph-Macon College and work as a Methodist preacher in North Carolina; Confederate Army chaplain at Salisbury Prison, N.C.; and professor at the University of North Carolina, 1875-1890.

Numerous sources on Mangum family history exist, including biographies of several members of the Mangum family in the Dictionary of North Carolina Biography. Series 2 of this collection contains much material on Mangum, Dickson, and related family history, including "A Short History of the Mangum Family of North Carolina," written by Ariana Holliday Dickson Mangum in 1956. This work contains a general genealogy and biographies of some family members (see subseries 2.1). Some of the information below was supplied by William Preston Mangum II. Among family members important in this collection are the following:
Willie Person Mangum (1792-1861) of Walnut Hall Plantation near Red Mountain, Orange (now Durham) County, N.C., was graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1815 and was a lawyer; Superior Court judge, 1818-1823 and 1828; and United States representative and senator, 1823-1853, serving as president of the Senate, 1842-1845. He was a trustee of the University of North Carolina for 47 years. Willie was considered a national leader of the Whig Party, running for president in 1836. Mangum married Charity Alston Cain in 1819.
Priestley Hinton Mangum (d. 1850) is brother of Senator Willie Mangum and was a member of the North Carolina House of Commons.
A. W. Mangum (1834-1890) was the son of Willie Person Mangum's cousin, Ellison Goodloe Mangum, of Locust Grove Plantation, Orange County. He attended Randolph-Macon College and became a Methodist minister. During the Civil War, A. W. served briefly as a Confederate chaplain at Salisbury and Goldsboro, N.C. He later preached in several North Carolina towns, and, in 1875, became professor at the University of North Carolina, holding the chair of mental and moral philosophy and teaching history and English literature. He remained on the faculty until just before his death. His wife was Laura Jane Overman (1843-1914) of Salisbury.
Ernest Preston Mangum (1865-1904) was the son of A. W. and Laura Mangum. Ernest was graduated from the University of North Carolina. He was superintendent of schools in Asheville, Clinton, Concord, and Wilson, N.C., and taught briefly at Western Carolina College. He married Lola Griffin (1867-1949), with whom he had two sons, Charles Preston Mangum (1893- ) and Ernest Preston Mangum, Jr. (1903-1955).
Charles Staples Mangum (1870-1939) was born in Greensboro, N.C., son of A. W. and Laura Mangum. He was graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1891 and, three years later, completed his medical training at the Jefferson Medical College. He returned to Chapel Hill in 1896 as professor of physiology and later became professor of anatomy. He served as dean of the Medical School and was a founder of the School of Public Health. Charles married Laura Rollins Payne (1873-1956) in 1900. One of their children was Charles Staples Mangum, Jr. (1902-1980), a lawyer.
William Goodson Mangum (1924- ) was born in Kinston, N.C., the son of Charles Preston Mangum and Margaret Blanche Edwards Mangum (1895- ). He served in the Army Air Force in World War II and attended the University of North Carolina, where he earned a M.A. in 1959. He also studied at the Corcoran School of Art, the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, and the Art Students League of New York. His work--paintings, drawings, and sculpture--has been widely exhibited. He also taught at Western Carolina College in Cullowhee, N.C., and at Salem College, in Winston-Salem, N.C. He married Ariana Holliday Dickson in 1953.
Ariana Holliday Dickson Mangum (1928- ) of Richmond, Va., was the daughter of Benjamin Abbott Dickson (1897-1976), who, as a colonel in the United States Army, saw active duty in both world wars, and Alice Holliday Dickson (b. 1900) of Indianapolis. Ariana's grandfather was Brigadier General Tracy Campbell Dickson. Ariana's parents divorced in the 1930s, and her mother later became Mrs. Henry Coudon Lau Miller. Ariana's father also remarried; her stepmother was Eleanor Shaler Dickson and her stepbrothers Colin Campbell Dickson and William Abbott Dickson. Ariana traveled extensively, settling in Ireland for seven years. Children of Ariana and William were Margaret Ariana Holliday Mangum (1954-), William Preston Mangum II (1958- ), Alice Holiday Mangum (1960- ), Laura Jane Overman Mangum (1963- ), and Grace Elizabeth Mangum (1966- ).
William Preston Mangum II was graduated from Randolph-Macon Academy in 1978 and pursued several occupations, including working with horses in Montana, Wyoming, and Kentucky, and in restaurants, hotels, and retail stores in various locations. He has also designed t-shirts and written numerous articles on Western lore and family history.Back to Top

Arrangement: chronological. Note that, especially after 1920, materials are roughly sorted by year.
Chiefly personal correspondence and related materials of members of the Mangum family. Also included are items of the related Dickson, Abbott, Holliday, Overman, and other families.
The earliest material, beginning in 1777, consists of deeds and indentures relating to land in Orange (now Durham) County, N.C. There is a copy of lawyer Willie Person Mangum's statement, 1823 or 1824, about his knowledge of debt and controversy between Herman Royster and Duncan Cameron, which had become part of a dispute between Cameron and William Montgomery, rival candidates for state senate. In 1824, there is a letter from William McMurray to the postmaster general about the location of post offices and estate and legal papers relating to Willie Person Mangum. In 1834, there is a letter from Charity Cain Mangum to her sister, Mary Cain Sutherland, in which she complained about the terms of her father's will. In 1837-1840, there are other legal papers relating to Sutherland and Cain family members.
From 1841 to 1846, there are letters from Willie Person Mangum in Washington, D.C., to his wife, daughters, and others about his activities and opinions. In 1841, there is a short note from Henry Clay about Mangum's not needing to attend a meeting of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. In 1844, there is a letter from Mangum to James Watson Webb of the Morning Courier and New York Enquirer giving Whig Party positions on the tariff, the treaty with Texas, and Henry Clay's chances for success. In 1845, there are photocopies of letters (originals at Yale University) from Willie Person Mangum to Francis O. Bacon about the United States Senate's pending investigation of fraud and the testimony to be given by Bacon.
In 1848, there is a letter from Willie Person Mangum to John Strother Pendleton of Virginia denying a rumor that Mangum was supporting Cass and Butler rather than the Whig presidential ticket and expressing zeal for the Taylor and Fillmore ticket. In 1849, there is a photographic copy of a letter from Abraham Lincoln to Willie Person Mangum about an appointment Lincoln wanted (location of original unknown).
Papers relating to A. W. Mangum, son of Willie Person Mangum's cousin, Ellison Goodloe Mangum, begin in 1851 with letters A. W. wrote to his father and others from Randolph-Macon College in Boydton, Va. These letters document Mangum's college life and also activities of the Mangum family members to whom he wrote. In 1852, there is a letter from A. W.'s brother Addison Mangum (b. 1822) of Orange County, N.C., son of E. G. Mangum, about his recent visit to Washington, D.C., and commenting on political issues. In 1853 and 1854, Nathan Hunt Daniel Wilson, a Methodist minister in Greensboro, N.C., is mentioned in A. W. Mangum's letters. Wilson's son, N. H. D. Wilson, Jr., later married A. W. Mangum's daughter Mary Elizabeth. In 1854, the elder Wilson's account as treasurer of the North Carolina Methodist Conference Education Society appears. A. W. Mangum was graduated from Randolph-Macon in 1854, and in 1854 and 1855, there are letters to him from college friends.
By 1857, A. W. Mangum was preaching the Methodist circuit in western North Carolina, and letters, 1857-1860, from him to family members reflect his opinions on local politics and document his activities. In 1858, there are letters from Chapel Hill and other locations where he was preaching, and also letters to and from A. W. Mangum about his receiving and rejecting an offer to teach at the Spartanburg Female Seminary in South Carolina.
In 1861, Mangum's friend Garland Hanes, who was a lawyer in Virginia, wrote about his desire for immediate secession. Letters show that Mangum, who was preaching in Salisbury, N.C., became active ministering to Confederate soldiers, traveling to Virginia shortly after the fall of Fort Sumter to start his tenure as chaplain. In 1862, he was back in Salisbury, from which he wrote describing conditions in the prison there, where United States soldiers were held as prisoners of war. In 1863, Mangum was apparently no longer a chaplain, but was preaching in Goldsboro, from which he wrote to family members about conditions there. In 1864, he returned to Salisbury from which he documented the fear of Sherman's approach (although he does not mention Sherman's Raid). Also in 1864, there is a letter from Addison Mangum in Salisbury to his wife about his activities, and, in 1865, to her about preparations of the Salisbury-Charlotte area against the enemy's approach.
In 1866, Mangum began writing to friends and others gathering information for a sketch of life at Salisbury Prison. In 1868, there is a deed of trust from Greensboro College to Mangum's friend N. H. D. Wilson to secure the debts owned by the College. In 1875, there are materials relating to A. W. Mangum's distribution of the estate of E. G. Mangum. In that year, there are also letters from Kemp P. Battle relating to conditions at the University of North Carolina, where Mangum had become professor of moral philosophy, history, and English literature. In the late 1870s and 1880s, there are a few items relating to the continuing financial problems at Greensboro Female College. In the late 1880s, there are items relating to the Victoria Institute, also called the Philosophical Society of Great Britain), which A. W. Mangum was asked to join. Also in the late 1880s, there are letters to and from Overman and Wilson relatives. In 1890, there are letters of sympathy on the death of A. W. Mangum.
In 1894, there are many courtship letters to Ariana Holliday Dickson Mangum's grandfather, Brigadier General Tracy Campbell Dickson, from his soon-to-be wife, Belle. Dickson, then a lieutenant, was stationed at the Springfield Armory in Springfield, Mass.
In 1904, there are letters of sympathy on the death of Ernest Preston Mangum. During the 1900s, there are also letters to and from Charles Staples Mangum and his wife, Laura Rollins Payne Mangum. Most of these letters document routine travel and family affairs. A few in the early 1910s are from Laura's brother Billy, who was serving in some capacity with the Isthmian Canal Commission. These letters are also about routine family affairs. There is also a letter in 1912 apparently from Benjamin Abbott Dickson, Ariana Holliday Dickson Mangum's father, also with the Isthmian Canal Commission to his mother. In 1914, there are letters of sympathy on the death of Laura Jane Overman Mangum. In 1917, there are many letters that discuss military life in general from John Overman Dysart with the American Expeditionary Forces to Charles Staples Mangum, Jr., in Chapel Hill.
In the 1910s and 1920s, there are scattered letters from Mangum relatives, including from A. W. Mangum, Jr., who wrote from Bellingham, Wa., about an anti-Hindu riot. During these years, there are also scattered and routine letters from Josephus Daniels, Cornelia Phillips Spencer, June Spencer Love, and other friends of the family. Many letters relate to Charles Staples Mangum, Jr.'s academic progress at the University of North Carolina. Others to his father deal with routine University affairs.
Letters of Charles Staples Mangum and Charles Staples Mangum, Jr., taper off in the early 1930s, although there are still some from Charles Staples Mangum, Jr., to his mother as late as 1944. By 1937, most of the letters relate to Ariana Holliday Dickson Mangum (called Docie or Doc), then Ariana Holliday Dickson, who lived chiefly with her mother at Shooter's Hill near Richmond, Va. Many of these letters were written to Ariana at various schools by her father, Benjamin Abbott Dickson. Letters between Ariana and her father and other relatives continue through the 1940s. During World War II, many of these letters between Ariana and her father trace his army activities, and in August 1945, there is a letter enclosing a record of Benjamin Abbott Dickson's military career. In the early 1940s, there are also letters to Ariana from sisters Ann Lee Saunders and Jane Quinn Saunders, young women of her own age who lived at neighboring Tuckahoe Point Farm.
Letters from William (Bill) Goodson Mangum to Ariana Holliday Dickson begin in 1949. While Ariana continued to receive letters from family, especially her father, and friend, by 1952, letters from Bill far exceed those from others by 1952. There are also some letters from Ariana to Bill. These letters chiefly document Bill and Ariana's activities, he beginning his career in painting and she completing her degree at Penn State, and their desire to be together. The volume of letters decreases greatly after their marriage in 1953.
Beginning in 1954, letters are chiefly to and from Bill and Ariana at various locations from family and friends. Many letters are from Benjamin Abbott Dickson at Cold Creek Farm in Paoli, Pa. Most letters discuss routine family and social affairs, but some relate to Bill's continuing his education at the University of North Carolina (M.A., 1959), to his increasing success in exhibiting his art work, and to his teaching career in the late 1950s at Western Carolina College in Cullowhee, N.C., and, beginning in the early 1960s, at Salem College, Winston-Salem, N.C. Other letters reflect Ariana's growing interest in family history. Bill and Ariana traveled frequently, both together and separately, during this period, and there are many postcards that document their journeys. Beginning around 1971, there are many letters from Benjamin Abbott Dickson, who had moved to Devon, Pa., that were meant to be distributed to various lists of recipients. These letters document Dickson's activities and thinking on a wide range of subjects. In 1973, there are many postcards from Ariana in Europe. Also in 1973, William Preston Mangum II was at Randolph-Macon Academy and began writing letters home about his life there.

Since August 2017, we have added ethnic and racial identities for individuals and families represented in collections. To determine identity, we rely on self-identification; other information supplied to the repository by collection creators or sources; public records, press accounts, and secondary sources; and contextual information in the collection materials. Omissions of ethnic and racial identities in finding aids created or updated after August 2017 are an indication of insufficient information to make an educated guess or an individual's preference for identity information to be excluded from description. When we have misidentified, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
