     Biographical note 
 Edwin Green Bedford (1814-1900) was a prominent Bourbon County, Kentucky stock breeder, noted for his interest in breeding of shorthorn cattle and hogs. He was married twice, one wife being the daughter of General James Garrard and granddaughter of Governor James Garrard.    
   
     Scope and Contents 
 The Edwin Green Bedford papers (dated 1812-1902; 1.8 cubic feet; 4 boxes) consist of diaries and correspondence pertaining to Bedford's stock breeding enterprises. The diaries give data on the weather, observations on methods of cultivation of crops, sales of livestock within the state, trips made to other states to buy cattle, prizes won by his stock at various fairs, the health of his family and servants, and hunting trips. The diaries concer Bedford's activities as a citizen, his service on a jury, and his political opinions. Although the diaries cover the period of the Civil War, there is little information regarding the conflict. The correspondence includes a letter from Lewis Sanders about the importation of cattle in 1817; letters from John Thornton, Bedford's agent in London; and a letter from Thomas Bedford describing his experience in the War of 1812.
