Guide to the Doris Duke Papers, 1798-2003 and undated (bulk 1930-1999)

Abstract

Born on November 22, 1912, Doris Duke was the only child of James Buchanan (J.B.) Duke, a founder of the American Tobacco Company and Duke Energy Company and a benefactor of Duke University, and Nanaline Holt Duke. Inheriting a bulk of her father's estate in 1925, which included Duke Farms in New Jersey, Rough Point in Newport, R.I., and a mansion in New York City, Doris was soon dubbed by the press as "the richest girl in the world." Although Doris did her best to live a private life, she contributed to a number of public causes and was an active supporter of the arts, historic preservation, and the environment. Doris Duke died in October 1993 at the age of 80. In her will she left the majority of her estate to the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. The Doris Duke Papers were created by combining materials maintained by staff at the Duke Business Office and/or household staff of the Main Residence, on Doris Duke's behalf. It mostly contains the personal papers generated by or about Doris Duke throughout her lifetime. The collection covers the period 1798 to 2003, although the majority of the collection is concentrated in the 1930s to 1993. The collection is organized into 9 series limited to Doris Duke's personal relationships, dealings, and interests: Administrative Records, Personal Correspondence, Financial Records, Legal Records, Reports and Summaries, Subject Files, and Duke Business Office Safe.

Collection Overview

The Doris Duke papers (formerly MSS.001) is part of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Historical Archives which were donated to the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. The collection is artificial in nature, created by combining materials maintained by staff at the Duke Business Office and/or household staff of the Main Residence, on Doris Duke's behalf. It mostly contains the personal papers generated by or about Doris Duke throughout her lifetime. Since Doris Duke's staff maintained her professional and personal records, often in the same filing structures, materials regarding her personal life were intermingled throughtout the larger collection. In order to improve access to important documents, all materials of a personal nature were selected out and incorporated into this collection. The only major exception is Series VII: Duke Business Office Safe, where the personal and professional contents of the office are maintained together to preserve the integrity of the materials and serve as a testament to business operations.

The Doris Duke Papers covers the period 1798 to 2003, although the majority of the collection is concentrated in the 1930s to 1993. The collection is divided into 7 series limited to Doris Duke's personal relationships, dealings, and interests: Administrative Records, Personal Correspondence (RESTRICTED), Financial Records, Legal Records, Reports and Summaries, Subject Files, and Duke Business Office Safe.

Contents of the Collection

1. Administrative Records, 1906-1993 and undated

This series contains an assortment of materials related to the broad and varied business and personal activities of Doris Duke. Materials related to business activities include correspondence, agendas, reports, and minutes from Doris Duke's business team. Topics range from investments, new ventures (including the chartering of the Newport Restoration Foundation), and loans, to job descriptions, stock donations, approval of gifts (donations), and information on the General Charitable Aid Association. Other business related materials include activity reports, repairs to homes, design proposals, NRF work progress reports, and requests for interviews. While these materials are related to Doris Duke's business pursuits, the personal side of life is also reflected as the authors often comment on current events and other daily activities such as congratulations on her marriage to Porfirio Rubirosa.

Materials related to the personal activities of Doris Duke include invitations to a variety of charitable events, solicitations for charitable contributions (letters addressed directly to Doris Duke and not her charitable organization often from individuals not personally acquainted with her), datebooks, address books, personal letters to friends (copies), magazine subscriptions, and correpondence related to travel. Of particular interest is correspondence (letters, telegrams) between Doris Duke and her mother Nanaline and between Doris Duke and her half-brother Walker Inman Sr. (Miss Duke signed her letters "Sis"), and two letters from Doris Duke while on her honeymoon in 1935.

The materials are loosely arranged in chronological order. Note that the subseries contains several documents written in French and Italian with no translation.

This series also contains electronic records related to a variety of administrative activities at the Duke Farms residence and includes monthly reports from managers, summaries of correspondence generated by the Duke Business Office staff, telephone messages, and lists of request for donations from the Doris Duke Foundation.

2. Personal Correspondence (RESTRICTED),1912-1993 and undated

A majority of the correspondence in this series are written to Doris Duke by a variety of family, friends, and acquaintances. Materials include letters, telegrams, cards, notes, and postcards.

These letters give insight to Doris Duke's experiences while overseas.

A majority of the series is arranged alphabetically by sender. The last box in the series contains general correspondence in which senders could not be identfied and/or letters that may or may not attest to a deeper relationship with Doris Duke. Note that the subseries contains letters written in French and Italian with very few translations.

Inventory Cards, circa 1930s-1990s and undated

This subseries primarily consists of inventory cards either in binders (books) or unbound and were maintained by the Duke Business Office staff, circa 1970s–1990s, to inventory and track the movement of objects on and between Doris Duke’s properties. These cards have been left in the original order they were found and presumably created in. For the most part, they are arranged by location and room thereunder, except as noted below. Also in this subseries are invoices (copies & originals) from art and antique dealers documenting the purchase of art, furniture and other objects from the 1930s to the 1960s, and miscellenous correspondence and inventories from the various residences.

Inventory books 1-47 are arranged by location and room thereunder. Books 48-59 have been arranged by medium and location thereunder. Unbound inventory cards have been kept in the original order they were found and presumably created in. As such, they have been arranged by location and room thereunder. The unbound Shangri La inventory cards were not stored with the other inventory cards but were included in this subseries as they compliment the rest of the Shangri La inventory cards.
