A prominent Boston-area family, the Richardson-Hemenway family was descended from
merchants (Hemenways) and textile manufacturers (Lawrences), and was related to the
Appletons, Cabots, Coolidges, and Higginsons. The collection centers around John and
Hope Hemenway Richardson.
John Richardson, the son of John (1857-1916), a merchant, and Louisa Storrow (Cabot)
Richardson (1861-1949), was born September 30, 1886, in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.
He attended Noble and Greenough School, Harvard College (A.B. 1908), and Harvard Law
School (LL.B. 1911), and from 1911 until his retirement in the 1970s, he was a lawyer
with Ropes and Gray in Boston. He served with Herbert Hoover in the United States
Food Administration and rose from the rank of private to captain in the United States
Army during World War I. An influential member of the Republican Party, John was a
member of the Republican National Committee from 1932 to 1936 and was an ardent supporter
of Herbert Hoover's presidential campaigns.
On September 7, 1909, John Richardson married Hope Hemenway. Hope, the daughter of
Augustus and Harriet (Lawrence) Hemenway, was born October 16, 1887. She graduated
from the Winsor School and attended Radcliffe College for the 1905-1906 academic year.
She served on the board of trustees of the Massachusetts Audubon Society and was an
active member of the League of Women Voters of Milton, Massachusetts. John and Hope
had five children, Hope Richardson (1910-2001), Louisa "Isa" (Richardson) Dreier (1912-1995),
Hetty (Richardson) Phillips (1914-1980), Faith Richardson Barnett (1918-2010), and
John Richardson (1921-2014).
Hope Hemenway Richardson died February 19, 1975. John Richardson died January 24,

The collection contains correspondence, diaries, financial records, photographs, etc.,
documenting the lives of John and Hope Hemenway Richardson, their daughter, Hope Richardson,
and other members of the Richardson family. Most materials arrived at the library
unfoldered and in no discernable order; the archivist created folder titles for those
files. A small number of files were foldered and those titles have been preserved
and appear in quotation marks. Files were arranged by the archivist.
Series I, JOHN AND HOPE HEMENWAY RICHARDSON, 1889-1984 (#1.1-18.5, 35FB.1, 36F+B.1-36F+B.2),
includes correspondence, diaries, notes, clippings, etc., documenting the lives of
John and Hope Hemenway Richardson. It is arranged in two suberies.
Subseries A, Biographical and personal, 1896-1984 (#1.1-8.6, 35FB.1, 36F+B.1-36F+B.2),
includes diaries, financial documents, notes, clippings, etc., documenting the Richardson's
childhoods, education, travels, civic activities, etc. Also included are commissions,
orders, training notes, etc., documenting John Richardson's service in World War I.
Files are arranged alphabetically within the following groupings: Hope Hemenway Richardson,
John Richardson, and John and Hope Hemenway Richardson.
Subseries B, Letters, 1889-1975 (#9.1-18.5), contains letters to John and Hope Hemenway
Richardson from family and friends. Letters generally include accounts of travels,
work, politics, and of daily activities. A majority of letters written between 1904
and 1909 are to John Richardson and generally include references to the Harvard crew
team, which John captained in 1908, focusing on the rivalry between Harvard and Yale
University. Files are arranged alphabetically.
Series II, HOPE RICHARDSON, 1910-1999 (#18.6-28.10, 35FB.2-35FB.3), includes correspondence,
diaries, appointment books, notebooks, etc., documenting the life of Hope Richardson,
eldest daughter of John and Hope Hemenway Richardson. It is arranged in two subseries.

diaries, appointment books, notebooks, etc., documenting Richardson's travels, daily
life, education, and health. Richardson appears to have suffered from migraine headaches
and other unspecified health problems for which she recorded her treatments, including
dietary restriction and prescription medications. Files are arranged alphabetically.
Subseries B, Correspondence, 1910-1998 (#24.9-28.10), contains correspondence between
Hope Richardson and her family and friends. Letters include accounts of travels; education,
including Richardson and several of her friends' attendance at boarding and finishing
schools; health problems; and general news of family and friends, including births,
deaths, weddings, parties, professional activities, and political beliefs. Also included
are exchanges between Richardson and several Unitarian ministers, including Vivian
T. Pomeroy, who was pastor at the First Parish Church in Milton, Massachusetts, which
Hope attended. Files are arranged chronologically, following letters from John and
Hope Hemenway Richardson.
Series III, INTERSTATE 95 EXPANSION PROTEST, 1944-1976 (#28.11-30.4, 36F+B.3, SD.1),
includes correspondence, notes, reports, meeting notices, maps, and printed material
relating to John, Hope Hemenway, and Hope Richardson's opposition to Interstate 695,
the proposed expansion of Interstate 95, which was slated to pass through Canton and
Milton, Massachusetts, near the Richardsons' home. Also included are printed materials
addressing land conservation. Most of the material was found loose, and it was often
unclear whether items belonged to one individual or were shared by all three Richardsons.
These items were filed together and arranged chronologically by year by the archivist.
A file titled "Hope Richardson" containing similar materials was kept intact and is
listed separately. Files are arranged alphabetically.
Series IV, OTHER FAMILY, 1824-1987 (#30.5-34.5, 36F+B.4-36F+B.5, SD.2), includes correspondence,
a genealogy, schoolwork, clippings, etc., belonging to John and Hope Hemenway Richardson's
parents; children, with the exception of Hope Richardson whose papers can be found
in Series II; siblings; and other family members. Of particular interest are letters
written by leading figures of the day to Charles and Eliza Follen, including a detailed
letter from Harriet Beecher Stowe containing biographical information and letters
from Lydia Maria Child discussing slavery, abolition, and women's rights. Files are
Series V, PHOTOGRAPHS, 1862-1994 (#PD.1-PD.27), contains portraits and snapshots of
members of the Hemenway and Richardson families. Photographs depict trips to Europe
and around the United States as well as daily life at the Hemenway and Richardson
homes in Boston, Milton, and Cohasset, Massachusetts. Files are arranged in an order
reflective of the arrangement in previous series.
Most of the photographs in this collection are or will be cataloged in VIA, Harvard
University's Visual Information Access database. Others, referred to as "uncataloged"
photographs, are not of sufficient research interest to warrant cataloging and are
simply treated as part of the documents they accompany; they are marked on the back
with an asterisk in square brackets [*].
