Hip Bath Collection

Andrew Jackson Jennings Collection, aka “The Hip-Bath Collection”

DESCRIPTION

The material in this collection was assembled by Andrew Jackson Jennings (1849-1923), a prominent Fall River, Massachusetts, attorney and a member of the defense team in the case of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts vs. Lizzie A. Borden. It is comprised of the most significant material associated with the Borden case known to exist, including physical and forensic evidence, original trial exhibits, and other related material.

HISTORICAL NOTE

In the 1940s, Andrew J. Jennings’ children sold their parents’ June Street residence, which had been vacant for some years. During the process of sorting through the contents of the house, a hip bath was discovered stored in the attic behind old awnings. Thinking the tub was filled with useless material, they were about to instruct a workman to dispose of it until deciding, on second thought, to examine its contents. Contained within was their father’s collection of material pertaining to the Borden case. 

The items were retained by Jennings’ daughter, Mrs. Dwight Stowe Waring, née Marion Jennings (1887-1973), and kept at her Underwood Street residence in Fall River; on extremely rare occasions, they were reluctantly shown to researchers. A product of her generation, and in keeping with the manner adopted by her father, she steadfastly refused to discuss the Borden case. As the years progressed, she grew increasingly annoyed by individuals requesting to examine the material.

PROVENANCE

Entire collection sans HB006, HB007, HB008, and HB009: Andrew J. Jennings; to his wife, née Marion Gibbs Saunders (1854-1933); to their daughter, Mrs. Dwight S. Waring; to the FRHS in memory of her father, 1968, Accession Number: 1968.038.

Shortly after the so-called “Hip Bath Collection” was donated to the FRHS, it was discovered that several items that the Jennings family intended to retain – two scrap albums, a journal of defense team notes, and an accompanying volume of clippings with cross-references to the journal – were, in error, included in the gift. The items in question were immediately returned to Mrs. Waring, but have subsequently been donated to the FRHS by her descendants; thus the collection is intact.

HB006, HB007: Mrs. Dwight S. Waring; to her son, Edward Saunders Waring (1924-2011), to the FRHS, 2011, Accession Number: 2011.001.

HB008: Andrew J. Jennings; to his wife, née Marion G. Saunders; to their daughter, Mrs. Dwight S. Waring; and thus by descent to a great-granddaughter of Andrew J. Jennings; to the FRHS, 2002, Accession Number: 2002.005.

HB009: Andrew J. Jennings; to his wife, née Marion G. Saunders; to their daughter, Mrs. Dwight S. Waring; to her son, Andrew Jennings Waring (1918-2009); to the FRHS, 1993, Accession Number: 1993.050.

INVENTORY

Forensic Evidence

HB001 – Envelope. 

Holograph envelope; wove paper, 6” x 3 ”; imprinted with seal of the City of Fall River, Massachusetts, and return address for “City Marshal, Fall River, Mass.”; inscribed “c.” in upper right corner in lead, and “Hair taken from Hatchet” in ink on body of envelope in hand of Medical Examiner Dr. William Andrew Dolan (1858-1922).

Object Identification Number: 1968.038.001

Enclosures:

HB001.1 – Fragmentary prescription form from mounted hair sample: 

Wove paper, 3” x 3 ”; imprinted “J. C. Brady, Regis[tered], 1 Granite Block, corner Pocasset Street …”; inscribed in ink “Hair placed here 1.57 PM 8-7-92” in hand of Medical Examiner Dr. William Andrew Dolan (1858-1922); traces of mucilage, hair not present.

HB001.2 – Microscope slide with mounted hair sample: 

Glass, 3” x 1”; single strand of hair, approximately 1” in length, mounted under glass cover slip, probably with Canada Balsam mounting medium (oxidized); paper label affixed to glass inscribed in ink “Borden Case Hair from Hatchet.” in hand of Dr. Edward Stickney Wood (1846-1905).

Note:The envelope marked “Hair taken from the hatchet” contained when I opened it two pieces of paper, this one, which was sealed and which contained a short hair, — it does not now, it is empty now, but that is the paper in which the hair was enclosed, contained a short hair one inch long, and containing both root and the point of the hair, and it had a red brown pigment, and is more similar to a cow’s hair than any other animal whose hair I have examined. It was sealed between those two glasses, and can readily be seen if the glass is placed upon a piece of paper. It is animal hair, no question of that, and probably cow’s hair. The envelope also contained a piece of paper which I examined very carefully without removing it from the envelope, and then I have examined with a lens every part of the inside of envelope without finding any hair. It is marked “Hair placed here 1.57 P.M. 8/7/92,” and it contains only a mucilage spot in the center; that is, I was unable to find any hair on it at all, and that hair (pointing to the cow hair) is the only hair I have had as coming from the hatchet.
