Humphrey was apparently a student at Berea College from 1867 to 1871 and later resided in New York City. He was president of the Columbia Salvage Company through 1923, but the papers predominantly relate to his political interests. In addition to being an active member of the National Republican Club, of which he was one of the original incorporators, Humphrey was secretary of the Republican National League (1887 - 1892), secretary of the Sulgrave Institute of the United States (1922), a member of the board of directors of the China Society of America, and a member of the American Peace and Arbitration League.

Scope and Content

The collection consists of miscellaneous correspondence, personal papers, business records, and materials relating to the National Republican Club, of which Humphrey was a long-time member and officer.

Materials include correspondence relating to Humphrey's political interests, his business career, and to his personal life. A large portion relates to the affairs of the National Republican Club headquartered in New York City, and is accompanied by numerous papers read at meetings, political tracts, and pamphlets. Business correspondence includes letters relating to an audit of the Columbia Salvage Company (of which Humphreys was president) by the U.S. Army Contract Audit Division in 1923. Fragmentary correspondence from Humphrey's wife, son, and other family members reflects his personal life.
