Historical Note:

One of the most enduring myths about the Declaration of Independence is that it was signed by Congress on July 4, 1776, immediately after it was adopted. In actuality the signed version was created at a later date and some of the signers had not yet even been elected to Congress on July 4. On July 19, 1776, after the New York delegation had been given permission to approve the resolution of independence, making the decision unanimous, Congress ordered a copy of the Declaration to be written on parchment for the delegates to sign. Two future presidents, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, were among the signatories. Edward Rutledge (age 26) was the youngest signer, and Benjamin Franklin (age 70) was the oldest signer. Late signers were Elbridge Gerry, Oliver Wolcott, Lewis Morris, Thomas McKean, and Matthew Thornton (who, because of a lack of space, was unable to place his signature on the top right of the signing area with the other New Hampshire delegates, and had to place his signature on the lower right). As new delegates joined the Congress, they were also allowed to sign. A total of 56 delegates eventually signed.

Scope and Content Note:

This collection consists of original manuscript letters and documents that contain autographs of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Engraved portraits of many of the signers are also included.  In addition, the collection contains the autographs of Robert R. Livingston and Thomas Willing, members of the Continental Congress who voted in favor of independence but did not sign the Declaration, and John Dickinson, who voted against the measure, together with Charles Thomson, Secretary of Congress, and signer of the Declaration, ex officio.  These documents range in date from 1749 to 1829, with most from the period of 1775-1785.

Also in this collection are the scrapbook which originally contained the Israel K. Tefft collection (see Provenance Note), a few miscellaneous portraits, a two-page biographical sketch of Lyman Hall, one of the signers from Georgia, and an index of contents.  This item is stored in the special case originally made to house the collection and scrapbook; the miscellaneous portraits, Hall sketch and index are still in the scrapbook. (Files after Box 6.)

The documents are organized alphabetically by state (colony) and then by surname of signer.

Provenance Note:

The collection was originally assembled by Israel K. Tefft of Savannah, Georgia and later sold at auction in New York City, March 4, 1867, to E. French for $650. New York State purchased it from French in 1868 for $800 and it was deposited in the State Library. (See New York State Library Annual Report for 1874, page 134; also State Library History Bulletin, No. 3, June 1899, page 213).  Many additional items were purchased by the library and subsequently added to the collection.  Accession numbers of these documents are noted in parentheses after each document.

Additional information related to autographs and documents of signers of the Declaration of Independence are found in Box 3 of SC17270. These files, compiled primarily by James I Wyer, director of the New York State Library from 1908 through 1938, include inventories of the collection, correspondence, and auction catalogs, circa 1915.
