“An Industrious Mind”

(p.1) Introduction
An Industrious Mind

J. Sears McGee

Stanford University Press

This introduction offers an exploration for the surprising neglect (except for the autobiography and Long Parliament journal) of the massive D’Ewes archive. It then offers four reasons for why this neglect should end: the size and important contents of the collection for a broad array of subjects; D’Ewes’s significance as a consumer of news and conveyer of it to others; the highly unusual quantity and quality of information about his upbringing, education, and family life; D’Ewes’s role in the Long Parliament which was based on his deep political and theological beliefs and commitments.
