IRWIN B. LAUGHLIN PAPERS, 1878-1944
13 linear feet, 2 linear inches (30 LGA-S boxes)
Herbert Hoover Presidential Library

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Irwin B. Laughlin served in the State Department from 1903 through 1932. He was Secretary of the London Embassy when the First World War began, and worked with Herbert Hoover and the Commission for Relief of Belgium. Hoover later appointed Laughlin Ambassador to Spain where Laughlin served from 1929 to 1932.

Laughlin was born in Pittsburgh on April 26th, 1871, to George M. Laughlin and Isabel Bowman Laughlin. Laughlin attended Yale University and graduated in 1893. He traveled and worked for his father before beginning his diplomatic career in 1903 when he served as Second Secretary to the American Legation at Japan. Laughlin also served in Bangkok (1906), Peking (1907), Russia (1908), Greece (1909), and Germany. 

Laughlin worked at the American Embassy in London from 1912 to 1919, first as Secretary and then as Counselor. Calvin Coolidge appointed Laughlin Minister to Greece in 1924, where Laughlin served through 1926. Laughlin retired in 1932 and died in 1941. He was survived by his wife, Therese Iselin Laughlin and daughter, Gertrude Laughlin Chanler.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The Irwin Laughlin papers consist of just over 13 linear feet of materials ranging from 1878 to 1944. Both his professional and personal life are documented, primarily through extensive correspondence. The papers have been arranged three series.

The Personal files, 1876-1941 series runs to nearly 2 linear feet, 8 linear inches of material.  Within the series, the files are arranged alphabetically by document type or topic. During 2005 reprocessing, Laughlin’s financial records/accounts and his diaries were moved from the name and subject files to his personal papers. The diaries offer insight into the mind of a young man (not yet a diplomat) as he travels the world in the last decade of the 19th century. Laughlin’s thoughts are also revealed in the letters with his mother, father, and brother.

Therese Laughlin Correspondence contains five linear inches of correspondence from 1912 to 1944 arranged alphabetically. The letters provide insight to her relationship with her daughter Gertrude. There is very little which reflects the life of a diplomat’s wife.

Professional Correspondence forms the bulk of the Laughlin collection. Totaling 9 linear feet, 7 linear inches, it contains materials from 1897 to 1940. This series has three sub-series: Alphabetical, Chronological, and Private Files. The Chronological and Private Files provide access to the letters within the provenance of their creation and Laughlin’s own filing system.  Arranged chronologically, these sub-series allow for research within temporal frameworks such as his years in London, Greece, or Spain. The Alphabetical sub-series contains photocopies created by archivists of the letters in the other sub-series. These are arranged alphabetically to provide access by correspondent.
