Descriptive Identification : Note

Over the course of Cary T. Grayson’s career at the White House and beyond, he wrote numerous articles and gave many speeches which are filed separately in this series, in chronological order. The first box includes a list of CTG’s articles and speeches, probably compiled by Grayson’s secretary, Gladys R. Newman. In addition, Grayson kept a file of correspondence specifically about his public talks and articles. A separate box contains entire magazine issues that include articles by CTG from 1920 – 1927 and one article about Woodrow Wilson from the Saturday Evening Post, Aug. 16, 1999.

Grayson collected and kept the speeches of Woodrow Wilson, most of which were printed by the Government Printing Office; a small number were actual typescripts. W.W.’s speeches are filed chronologically. The final box in the series contains the manuscript of a book about Woodrow Wilson by Cary T. Grayson and Stockton Axson that was never published.

This series includes newspaper and magazine articles about Cary T. Grayson’s life, drafts of articles for biographical encyclopedias, obituaries, insurance applications, etc. Because many of the files include photocopies, it can be assumed that this material was compiled by Cary T. Grayson, Jr., perhaps when he was preparing to publish Woodrow Wilson: An Intimate Memoir in 1960. The biographical materials are filed chronologically.
This series includes a variety of certificates and awards from universities, governments, medical associations, and other agencies. The documents are listed separately below, with notations indicating if they are oversized. The oversized documents are housed in the map case in the Stack Room.

Cary T. Grayson, or his secretary Gladys R. Newman, kept meticulous correspondence files. “Significant” correspondents were given their own heading, arranged alphabetically by last name. These correspondents were either notable individuals such as cabinet members, senators, physicians, etc., organizations Grayson belonged to, or people with whom he corresponded frequently. He also created a “Miscellaneous” file for each letter of the alphabet, in which he filed the rest of his correspondence, by the last name of the correspondent or name of organization. The Correspondence Series section contains a listing of all the correspondents in the collection, with box numbers to serve as physical finding aids. In some cases, such as the Paris Peace Conference memorabilia, items other than correspondence are included. Menus, seating charts, information about the voyage to France were all kept together by Grayson with the rest of his correspondence, and the original order has been preserved. If a letter included a newspaper article or photograph as an enclosure, they are retained with the letter in the correspondence files. Please note, however, that there is a separate series in the Cary T. Grayson Collection for newspaper clippings and another for photographs.

The diary series includes a variety of diaries, date books, address books, and calendars. Some of the diaries from 1918 and 1919 are typed, the rest are in CTG’s handwriting. The typed diaries from 1918 and 1919 are overlapping; some contain more details than others and may be later versions.

These papers show the financial accounts, holdings, and transactions of Cary T. Grayson and his wife, Alice Gertrude Gordon Grayson. Mrs. Grayson inherited money, property, and business interests when she was still a teenager, and she continued to have separate financial interests throughout her marriage to Cary, although they also held joint accounts. The major financial institutions the couple dealt with include: American Security and Trust, East Hampton National Bank, Farmers and Merchants Bank, Guarantee Trust Company, National Savings and Trust, and Riggs National Bank. Unless otherwise noted, the files are arranged chronologically.

This series includes a variety of items, from stories, horse-racing material to war posters and artwork that do not fall into any of the other established Grayson series.

Cary Grayson kept newspaper clippings about himself, his family, Woodrow Wilson, the Wilson administration, the war, the Paris Peace Conference, and other topics that he found interesting.

The collection is divided into ten boxes of general newspaper clippings covering every subject imaginable arranged chronologically; three boxes of English language clippings (mostly British, some American) that cover Woodrow Wilson’s travels in Europe prior to the opening of the Paris Peace Conference and the first few months of the Peace Conference itself; three boxes of French language clippings covering that same time period; and one box of Italian newspaper clippings.

In addition, there are full pages of newspapers or entire issues housed in oversized boxes, most of which date from Dec. 14, 1919 – Feb. 14, 1919 and cover the President’s European tour and the Peace Conference.
This series includes a variety of periodicals (entire issues) collected by the Grayson family between 1913 and 1964. The collection is housed in one oversized Hollinger box and is arranged in date order.

This series consists of fifteen phonograph records housed in one oversized Hollinger box.

Biography or History

Cary Travers Grayson, Woodrow Wilson’s personal physician, as well as loyal friend and confidant, was born 11 October 1878, at Salubria, in Culpeper County, Virginia. Educated at William and Mary and the University of the South, Grayson earned his M.D. from the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond and interned at Columbia Hospital for Women in Washington, D.C. He did post-graduate work at Johns Hopkins medical school under the famous Sir William Osler. After joining the Navy in 1903, Grayson served on the U.S.S. Maryland and was later assigned to temporary duty aboard the presidential yacht, the U.S.S. Mayflower, serving as physician to presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft before Woodrow Wilson appointed him White House physician and aide in 1913. Grayson married Alice Gertrude Gordon on 24 May 1916, and the couple had three sons: James Gordon, born 7 January 1918; Cary Travers, Jr., born 21 March 1919; and, William Cabell, born 28 May 1921. Promoted to Rear Admiral in 1916, Grayson accompanied Woodrow Wilson on both trips to the Paris Peace Conference after World War I and cared for the president after he was incapacitated by a stroke in October 1919. During Grayson’s White House assignment, he also offered medical care to members of the cabinet and their families and to many other prominent officials. He served on the staff of several hospitals and lectured at the U.S. naval medical school. Assigned by President Harding to continue caring for Wilson after Wilson’s second term in office ended in 1921, Grayson remained with Wilson until the ex-president’s death in 1924. Retiring from the Navy in 1928, Grayson was named head of the Gorgas Memorial Institute of Tropical and Preventive Medicine that same year. Franklin D. Roosevelt tapped Grayson to chair his first and second inaugural committees, and later appointed him chairman of the American National Red Cross, a position he held from 1 March 1935 until his death on 15 February 1938, in Washington, DC.
