Crittenden, who is most often remembered for the anti-sessionist compromise which bears his name, had an active political life. He was territorial attorney general of Illinois in 1809-1810 and twice attorney general of the United States. He served four times in the United States Senate between 1817 and 1861, was Governor of Kentucky from 1848 to 1850, twice Speaker of the Kentucky House of Representatives, and served one term in the United States House of Representatives, among other offices. Two of Crittenden's sons served as Major Generals on opposite sides during the Civil War. These materials largely consist of Crittenden's outgoing correspondence and deal with personal and political matters. Subjects discussed in the correspondence include personal requests for copies of speeches and other printed materials plus recommendations for military appointments and a legal position. One also concerns the Russellville, Ky. bank. One group of materials also contains two notes and a printed portrait (1863). Arranged numerically by accession number and thereunder chronologically.
