BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE



Alfred Hazlett was born near Kent, Pennsylvania on June 9, 1848.  He grew up on his father’s farm where he attended district country school, prep school and Jefferson College at Canonsburg, Pennsylvania.  Hazlett was admitted to the bar at Greensburg, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.  For a short time he was associated in the practice of law with his brother, James J. Hazlett, and former U.S. Senator Edgar Cowan.



Alfred Hazlett moved to Beatrice, Gage County, Nebraska in 1871.  At the beginning, he was associated with L.W. Colby.  By 1884 he had formed a partnership with Charles O. Bates.  From 1891 to 1894 Hazlett and W.C. LeHane were partners.  In 1895, Hazlett and his cousin, Fulton Jack, went into practice together.  Their firm of Hazlett and Jack, which later became Hazlett, Jack, and Laughlin as Senator Loren H. Laughlin became associated with them, lasted until Hazlett’s death in 1927.  During his 56-year career as a lawyer in Nebraska, Hazlett had a reputation as a safe advisor and as one of the strongest and more resourceful trial lawyers in the state.



Fulton Jack was born in Indiana County, Pennsylvania on June 17, 1869.  A graduate of Pennsylvania’s Washington and Jefferson College, he received his law degree from the Northwestern Indiana Law School in 1894.



Jack arrived in Beatrice, Nebraska in 1895 and was admitted to the bar on July 1st of that year.  He then began practice with his cousin, Alfred Hazlett, in the firm of Hazlett and Jack.  At first, he was closely connected with the activities of the Kilpatrick Brothers in the field of railroad construction.  In his practice with Hazlett, Jack became prominent in general community practice and was known as an effective trial lawyer.



SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE



This collection consists of fourteen boxes and thirty-four volumes of manuscript material arranged in six series:  1) Incoming Correspondence, 1883-1914; 2) Outgoing Correspondence, 1877-1913; 3) Financial Records, 1884-1892; 4) Collection Register, 1875-1890; 5) Records of Clients and Research Reports, 1886-1888; and 6) Miscellany, 1882-1920.



This material relates to the law firm which began as Hazlett and Colby and ended as Hazlett and Jack.  The collection reflects all of the many partnerships of Alfred Hazlett, with L.W. Colby, Charles O. Bates, W.C. LeHane, and Fulton Jack.  The association with Jack, Hazlett’s cousin, lasted from 1895 till 1927, when Hazlett died.  This collection, while providing information about all of Hazlett’s partnerships, contains the greatest amount of material on the longest lasting partnership of his partnerships, the one of Hazlett and Jack.



The Incoming Correspondence, 1883-1914, of Series 1 comprises the bulk of this collection.  Letters are arranged chronologically and then alphabetically by last name of the correspondent.  This isn’t a strict chronological or alphabetical filing system, as letters are grouped together by blocks of time and then by the first letter of the last name.  Therefore, it will be necessary to look under all of the “k” files, for each designated time period, to find all of the letters written by the Kilpatrick Brothers Company, for example.



Topics discussed in the correspondence include questions about and the status of various law cases, collections and claims, complaints about fees, requests for information about clients and residents of Beatrice, politics, and personal news from relatives.  Of particular interest are the reports on the “hard times” in Nebraska during the 1890’s as descriptions of the drought-ridden land and financial losses of clients are provided.  Prominent correspondents include J. Sterling Morton (1885, Apr.-June), Governor Silas Holcomb (1897, July-Dec.), Roscoe Pound (1906, Aug.-Oct.), and Gilbert M. Hitchcock (1910).



File headings reflect the changing names of Hazlett’s law firms as the names Bates, LeHane, and Jack are shown as they become associated with Hazlett.



The Outgoing Correspondence, 1877-1913, of Series 2 consists of twenty-one letterbooks.  Topics discussed include collections and claims, money received, progress of court cases, strategy and plans notes on individuals involved in cases, court appearance, the gathering of evidence and witnesses, and answers to questions asked by other lawyers.  An index, sometimes partial, is included in each volume which lists alphabetically the recipient of these letters and the page number on which a copy of the letter appears.  The volumes reflect Hazlett’s partnerships with Colby, Bates, LeHane, and Jack at different points in time.



Series 3 is comprised of Financial Records, 1884-1892.  Record types include cash account books, ledgers, and journals.  All reflect expenditures and income, but arrangement differentiates the types.  Journals and cash books are in chronological order:  cash book accounts show bills receivable while journals record debits and credits.  The ledgers are arranged by account names, which are indexed.



The Collection Registers, 1875-1890, of Series 4 record money received as collections are made.  Volume 1, 1875-1890 provides the most information as it shows the payer’s name and address, type of claim, date, amount due, interest, when due, amount paid, and to whom remitted.  Entries are arranged alphabetically by first letter of payer’s last name.



Volumes 2 and 3, 1876-1889, record collections made by agents employed by Hazlett’s law firm.  These are arranged chronologically and by the name of the employee.  Entries show the type of collection and the amount received.



Series 5 consists of Records of Clients and Research Reports, 1886-1888.  These were probably maintained for cases engaged in by the law firm.  Entries show the individual’s name, the type of business engaged in and length of time in operation, age, marital status, evaluation of character, habits, and capacity, worth of business, and property owned.



The Miscellany of Series 6 includes various unfiled case-related documents, personal and business files, and a volume with copies of court proceedings, 1885-1887.
