Title: Edward Chase Papers, 1844-1895


Edward Chase was born March 5, 1824, in Taunton, Massachusetts. He came to St. Louis in 1847 and took charge of a branch of the New York banking house of Clark, Dodge and Company. The company later became E.W. Clark and Brother, located at the corner of Main and Olive Streets. Mr. Chase later engaged in the insurance business, and his time was thus occupied until 1871, when he was made manager of the St. Louis Clearing House. He married Miss Lydia W. Alden, of Fall River, Massachusetts.

Collection contains various land papers for real estate throughout the United States; business papers consisting of stocks, receipts, and checks that are not necessarily Mr. Chase's; three $50 and one $1 currencies from the State Bank of Illinois, 1851; bankbooks and checkbooks; a map of the state of Georgia, 1869; about ten letters written by Mr. Edward Chase to his wife describing life in St. Louis, including news of the cholera epidemic, 1849-1870.
