BIBLIOGRAPHIES RELATING TO THE MILITARY ACADEMY AND TO 

WEST POINT.* 

The following- bibliographies relating to the United States Military 
Academy and to the post of West Point have been constructed — 

First: By giving references to books and periodicals in the Librarx' of 
the Academy. The letter "A" following a title indicates that the book 
is owned by the Library of the I'nited States Military Academy. 

Second: By copying titles from Poore's Catalogue of Government 
Publications, 1774-18S1, and its \-arious continuations to 1902. Onl\' a 
few references to Congressional documents could be verified by the editor 
in the course of the work on accoiuit of lack of time. 

Third: By copying titles from catalogues of books, etc., in the lilirary 
of the War Department. Washington. 

Fourth: B\' copving titles from catalogues of books, etc., now in the 
collection of the Di\"ision of Militar\- Information, Adjutant-Oeneral's 
Office. 

Fifth: By copying titles from the catalogues of a few large libraries 
in the United .States, and from Poole's and other indexes to periodicals. 

Sixth: By references to certain important series which have been 
thoroughly searched by the editor, such as the American State Papers, 
Military Affairs, and others of the sort. 

Seventh: By reference to the biographies of statesmen and .soldiers 
in the Librar\- of the Academy. Miss Lucretia Pope, daughter of Major- 
General Pope (a graduate of 1S42), was good enough to examine all 
such biographies, page b\-page, marking e\'ery reference to the Academy 
and to a certain list of per.'^ons. Many hundred volumes were thus

searched by Miss Pope, leaf \)\ leaf, and the significant entries snbse- 
quently copied by myself. This part of the work has been ver\- 
thoroughly done, thanks to Mi.ss Pope's intelligent assiduity. 

Eighth: B}- reference to various series of manuscripts as follows: 

The Cullum manuscripts in the posse.ssion of the Association of Grad- 
uates, United States Military Academy. These manu.scripts have been 
carefully .searched by Capt. Bertram C. Gilbert, Artillery Corps, and by 
myself. They include many letters bj* Colonel Thayer. 

The Swift manuscripts loaned to the United States Military Academy 
by the heirs of Gen. J. G. vSwift, first graduate (1802) of the Academy. 
These pricele.ss papers were, by the great kindness of General Swift's 
heirs, depo.sited in the Library in October and November, 1902, and have 
been as thoroughly examined by Captain Gilbert and by myself as time 
allowed. 

The manuscripts of Capt. Aklen Partridge, vSuperintendent United 
States Military- Academy (1815-1S17), were loaned to us in October, 
1903, by his sou, Mr. Henry V. Partridge, of Norwich, \'t. They have 
been thoroughlj' examined by myself. 

Miscellaneous manuscripts, records of the Dialectic Society, orderly 
books, etc., in the Librarj- of the Academy, which have been thoroughly 
.searched by Capt. Gordon Heiner, Artillery Corps, and by myself. 

The manuscript papers (returus, reports, orderly books, letters, etc.), 
written at West Point in the years 1795 to 1829, which were transferred 
(in February, 1903) from the Schuylkill Arsenal to the Library of the 
Academy, through the courtesy of Capt. John T. Knight, U. S. Army, 
by authority of the Quartermaster-General and of the Adjutant-General, 
U. S. Army. These ha\-e been searched as thoroughlj' as time allowed 
by myself. 

The manu.script index to the daily issues of the New York Times 
newspaper, from 1861 to 1902, from which every reference to West Point 
and to the United States Military Academy has been copied. 

MantLscript orderly books and regimental returns belonging to the 
Pocumtoc Valley Memorial As.sociation, of Deerfield, Mass., which were 
most kindly loaned to us in 1903, through the kindness of the president 
aud secretarj' of the association, and which have been searched by me. 

The manuscript records of the academic board, adjutant, quartermaster, 
aud treasurer. United States Military Academj-, have not been searched 
for lack of time. They should be gone o\-er page by page, and would 
no doubt }-ield rich returns. Under existing conditions it has been 
simply impossible even to begin this work except in one point. The 
general orders, headquarters United vStates Military Academy, from 
Februar}^ 19, 1838 (the date of the disastrous fire which de.stroyed the 
records of the Academy), to 1857 were, however, examined by Lieut. 
A. F. Casad, Artillery Corps, during November 1902. He has extracted 
many items of general interest which appear in the Militar}^ Academy

bibliography-. Capt. Gordon Ileiiicr, Artillery Cordis, has been good 
enough to continue this examination from i<S57 to 1902, and all the 
records from 1S3S to 1902, as well as the orders of the commandant of 
cadets, have been examined by Capt. F. \V. Sladen. I'. S. Arm>', who 
has kindl\- given us the benefit of his .search. 

Capt. H. M. Reeve, Seventeenth Infantry, I'. S. Army, during the 
summer of 1902 thoroughh" searched the mamiscripts of the State Depart- 
ment and of the Library of Congre.ss, and made accurate copies of all 
significant documents with his own hand. 

The greater part of this Ijibliography was completed in July, 1902, 
In the autumn of 1903 it was for the first time possible for me to leave 
my duties at West Point and to consult the manuscripts of the War 
Department in Washington. Through the .great kindness of Brigadier- 
General Ainsworth, Brigadier-General Gillespie, Brigadier-General 
George B. Davis, and Colonel W. P. Hall, the maivuscripts of the Record 
and Pension Office, of the Engineer Department, of the Judge-Advocate- 
General's Department, and of the Adjutant-General's Department were 
opened, and everj* assistance was given by them and by those imme- 
diately in charge of the records, especially by Messrs. Heitman and 
Wood. Brigadier-General Charles P. Humphrey, Quartermaster- 
General, was so good as to provide a stenographer to aid in the work; 
the Chief of the Record and Pension Office and the Adjutant-General 
permitted a large number of selected documents to be copied entire; and 
the Judge-Advocate-General cau.sed copies to be made of two very long 
documents. Copies are filed with the adjutant, United States Military 
Acadenu- and also in the Library. 

The thanks of each and every graduate of the Academy are due for 
the generous aid thus offered b\- the.se gentlemen and by others not here 
named. The materials for a history of the United States Military Acad- 
enij- are now substantially complete. 

The War Department records are \-ery full; at the same time they are 
very special, as they cover official matters only. The bibliography as 
printed here represents more especially such miscellaneous information 
as can be derived from printed books rather than that contained in the 
manuscripts in the War Department. It is relatively much more full 
for the early years of the Academy's history ( 1S02-1S38 ) than for the 
later, since the records at West Point are complete after February, 1838. 

BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THK WRITINGS ol" (IKADUATES. 

The bibliography of the writings of graduates from 1S02 to 1902 has 
been formed — 

First: By including a very few li.sts of their own writings furnished 
bj- the graduates themselves. During the j-ear 1899 a circular was sent 
to every living graduate, asking for a li.st of his published works for 
insertion in \'olume IV of Cullum's Regi.ster. All such lists are here 



4 Centennial of Unt/cd Sfa/cs Military Academy. 

included. They make, however, but au insignificant part of the whole. 
A similar request was printed in the Army and Navy Register for April 
12, 1902, and brought a few returns. All graduates stationed at West 
Point have been formally requested to examine the bibliography while 
it was in manuscript, in order to make it as complete as practicable. 

Some references to the history, etc. , of a few uongraduates are included 
in the bibliography. Washington, Jeffenson, Adams, Monroe, Madison, 
Jack.son, Hamilton, Knox, Pickering, Nicola, and a few others of the 
Revolutionarj' period are mentioned in connection with the origin, found- 
ing, and progress of the Academy. The names and writings of pro- 
fessors and other officers of the Academ}- are likewise included. 

Second: By copying the catalogue cards of the Library of the Military 
Academy for books, etc., published by graduates. The letter "A" fol- 
lowing a title indicates that the book is now in the Library. 

Third: By copying from Cullum's Biographical Register, Volumes I, 
n, IIL I^^ all references to books, etc., printed by graduates. When- 
ever such references were incomplete every effort has been made to com- 
plete them. If any graduate fails to find papers credited which he has 
published, it is earnestly requested that a notice of such omissions be 
sent to the editor. 

Fourth: 3y copying titles from the catalogues of a few large libraries 
in the United States, particularly from the Libraries of Congress, the 
War Department, the Engineer Department, and from all available 
author-indexes to periodicals. 

Fifth: All portraits of graduates (except photographs) owned by the 
United States Militarj- Academy are here catalogued and, in order to 
make our list of portraits complete, I have included a few paintings and 
busts of nongraduates that are owned by the Academy. Most of the 
data under this head have been furni.shed by Prof. C. W. Larned, LT. S. 
Military Academv. 

Sixth: I have made a list of the statues and other memorials erected 
in honor of distinguished graduates throughout the country and it is 
here included, although it is not complete. The data here given have 
been gathered from a great variety' of sources — from the letters of per- 
sonal friends, from published biographies, from the catalogues of brass 
founders, etc. 

vSeventh: A large collection of engraved portraits has been made by 
the Library of the Academj- with the a.ssistance of Paul Lamed, cadet 
U. S. Military Academ>', and a list of them is here printed. 

Eighth : A list of photographs of graduates owned by the West Point 
army mess has been prepared under the direction of Capt. H. M. Reeve, 
U. S. Arm}', and is here included. 

Ninth: The writings of engineer and ordnance officers are taken from 
the indexes to the reports of the Chief of Engineers and of the Chief of 
Ordnance, so far as the>- have been printed. 



IiilrodncioiY Xoic. 5 

All author-iiulfx to thu former reports was iiuule in this library by 
Private Browiily. Tin.- index to the reports of the Chief of luigineers 
has been continued in niantiscript from 1892 to date under the direction 
of Lieut. Col. C. \\". Raymond, Corps of Ivngineers, l)y Mr. John McClure, 
chief clerk of the engineer office, in Philadelphia, by the kind i)ermission 
of the Chief of Engineers, and its data are here included. 

The printed indexes of the reports of the Chief of Ordnance have been 
continued, in manuscript, from 1893 to date by the courtesy of the Chief 
of Ordnance and are here included. 

Annual reports of a routitic nature are, hi gcneyal , not mentioned here. 
Such reports are incident to the official station held by the graduate. 

The reports indexed in the Records of the Civil War are likewi.se 
omitted. Every article written for magazines, etc., b\- graduates has 
been included, whenever it is known to the editor. The object of the 
catalogue has been to exhibit the intellectual product of the Academy 
for a hundred years. If magazine articles of the .sort are included — as 
they certainly should be — it is clear that we can not omit a project for 
a bridge over the Mississi])pi River, or a series of experiments upon the 
effect of explosives. 

It is also obvious that the editor can not decide what .scientific reports 
of the .sort are more important and what are less .so: hence it has 
been necessary to include all such. 

Tenth: The titles of writings of artillery and other officers ha\-e been 
copied from a complete author-index ( manuscript ) to the Journal of the 
United vStates Artillery made t)y Capt. C. DeW'. Willcox, of the Artillery 
Corps, during 1902. 

Eleventh: The titles of the writings of cavalry and other officers ha\-e 
been copied from a complete author-index (manu.script ) to the Journal 
of the United States Cavalry Association made by Lieut. T. A. Roberts, 
Tenth Cavalry, in 1902. 

Tw^elfth: The titles of the writings of infantry and other officers have 
been copied from a complete author-index (manuscript) to the Publica- 
tions of the Infantry Societ>- made by Capt. R. C. I)a\is, Seventeenth 
Infantry, U. S. Army, in April, 1902. 

Thirteenth: The titles of other writings of graduates lia\-e been taken 
from a complete author-index (manuscript ) to the Journal of the United 
Sen'ice Institution made by Lieut. T. A. Roberts. Tenth Cavalry, U. S. 
Army, in 1902. 

Fourteenth: The reports of the Coast Survej", of the National 
Academy of Sciences, of the Pacific Railway Surveys, of the siirve>s 
west of the one-hundredth meridian (Wheeler's and others 1, etc.. have 
been searched b>' the editor. 

Fifteenth: The theses of graduates of the Artillery vSchool. have like- 
wise been catalogued .so far as they could be found. There is no pub- 
lished list of them, so far as is known to me. 



6 Ceutcniiial of United States Military Acadcniv. 

Sixteenth: The valuable index to the Annuals of the Association of 
Graduates United States Militar\- Acadeni)- prepared by Capt. W. C. 
Rivers, First Cavalry, TJ. S. Army, has been consulted for references 
to the places where obituaries and portraits of deceased graduates can 
be found. Where a jK.irtrait is known to exist in any of the books 
catalogued here, the fact is noted after the title entr\'. 

Seventeenth: B}- copying titles from standard biographies of the gradu- 
ates all works there credited to them. In cases of this .sort it has not 
always been pos.sible to obtain full titles, etc.. but no pains have been 
.spared in this regard. 

Eighteenth: The very numerous entries from the i2,s volumes of the 
Official Records of the War of the Rebellion which relate to reports, 
etc., from graduates are not here given. Each one of the 128 vol- 
umes of that work has its own index in which the names of graduates 
occur at e\'ery few lines. The index to these indexes is itself a volume 
of 1,242 pages. Reports from many of the graduates are found in 10, 
20, or even more ^•olumes ; and in man)' places in each separate 
volume. Reference is here made, once for all, to the Official Records 
above cited. Its indexes, together with the entries here printed, exhaust 
the sources of information at present accessible to the editor. 



It is obvious thai a l)ibliography of this .sort can not be made comptetc 
except by very long research, nor without the direct assistance of the 
graduates themselves: nor can it be made accurate except by repeated 
revision by skilled hands. In the publications of Congress, and of the 
War Department, proper credit can not be given to officers without 
turning over the pages of each document one by one. There has been 
no time for an exhaustive examination of the sort. The following 
bibliographies are but .specimens of a work that must eventually be 
done in a thorough and complete manner. They are but a first attempt. 
In making them it has not been possible to command the services of 
even a .single trained clerk. The editor will be grateful for notice of all 
necessary corrections and additions. He is very conscious of the imper- 
fections of the li.sts here printed. 

At the same time he asks that they should be judged by comparing 
them with previously printed lists of the .sort rather than with an ideal 
standard of perfection. They con.stitute a painstaking attempt to 
exhibit the activity of the Military Academy in one direction; and even 
in their present form demonstrate its signal vitality- and usefulness. 

Our graduates are by their training and habit men of action rather 
than scholars, students, or writers. Vet in the latter capacities they 
nave left a mark upon the nineteenth century which is highly honorable 
to their alma mater and to them.selves. Four thousand and twenty-one 
persons graduated at the Military Academy from 1802 to 1902. The

bibliography of the writings of these graduates which follows contains 
about 16,000 titles. It is submitted that this is an extraordinary out- 
put for an institution that, by its nature, trains its pupils for scientific 
and technical work alone. Officers of the Army are taught to act, not 
to write. When an act is approved by the proper official superior, it 
is forgotten and the officer goes on to other acts. Viewed in this light 
the catalogue that follows is mo.st instructive, and it conclusively an.swers 
the question whether or not the educational methods of the Academ\- fit 
its graduates for their places in military and iu civil life.

1801-1805. Extracts from the journal 
(1S30) of John Lillie (appointed cadet 
at the age of 10 years 7 months): "The 
Military Academy was then in its in- 
fancy; all order and regulation, either 
moral or religious, gave way to idleness, 
dissipation, and irreligion. Xo control 
over the conduct of the officers and ca- 
dets was then exercised . . . Drunken- 
ness and Sabbath breaking constituted 
the order of the day, and well it was 
for me that I left that place of ruin."

1814. There was a small library in a 
building about 10 feet .square which 
stood behind the present quarters of

The cadets then encamped at 

Governors Island, New York Harbor, 
in August, and were present at the 
execution of a deserter. During the 
winter there was artillery firing over 
the ice toward Newburg and the cadets 
were expert practical artillerists. Cap-
