Sherman Addison Chubbuck (1830-1910) was born in Addison, New York to Jacob Chubbuck (1797-1873) and Minerva Tupper (1798-1875). He was a minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church, serving in Minnesota and Pennsylvania. In 1863, he married Catalena Buffington Pendleton (1842-1918) and together the couple had two children: Allie Linwood (1866-1928) and Charles Pendleton (1873-1936).
American Letters collector Wade Hall (1934-2015) was a native of Union Springs, Alabama. Starting in 1962, he lived in Louisville, where he taught English and chaired the English and Humanities/Arts programs at Kentucky Southern College and Bellarmine University. He also taught at the University of Illinois and the University of Florida. He held degrees from Troy State University (B.S.), the University of Alabama (M.A.), and the University of Illinois (Ph.D.). He served for two years in the U.S. Army in the mid-fifties. Dr. Hall was the author of books, monographs, articles, plays, and reviews relating to Kentucky, Alabama, and Southern history and literature. His most recent books include A Visit with Harlan Hubbard; High Upon a Hill: A History of Bellarmine College; A Song in Native Pastures: Randy Atcher's Life in Country Music; and Waters of Life from Conecuh Ridge.
Scope and Content
The Sherman Addison Chubbuck diary (dated 1861-1865; 0.04 cubic feet; 1 folder) comprises one diary that documents the life and work of Methodist minister Sherman Chubbuck in Minnesota during the Civil War. The diary includes pre-designed portions where Chubbuck was able to fill in the blanks with information pertaining to his congregation including the number of members, deaths, baptisms, Sunday-schools, conversions, and amount of money donated by parishioners. Chubbuck also lists the names of funerals he attended, sermons preached, members and friends, costs incurred, and periodical subscribers. In the diary portion, Chubbuck writes about parishioners and colleagues he visited in various towns, the weather, talks given, views on the Civil War and the secessionist states, and the interactions between the white community and the Native Americans. Chubbuck mentions a resolution passed by a Methodist congregation calling for the suppression of the secessionists, a devotion to ending slavery through the church's material aid and sympathy, and discussion of the Sioux Indian Uprising.
The Sherman Addison Chubbuck diary is part of the Wade Hall Collection of American letters, which includes correspondence and diaries from all over North America covering the time period of the Civil to Korean Wars. The materials were collected by Wade Hall and document everyday men and women.
