Small Manuscripts Collection


This is our collection of “Small Manuscripts”, a catch-all grouping of writings, research, histories, reminisces, letters, and other ephemera collected over the years and deemed especially valuable to research staff or patrons.  The collection is housed in two file cabinets in our Research Library, hence the cabinet/drawer locations listed here. It is updated regularly with new items – this webpage is updated about twice a year. The latest update was applied November, 2021.

You’re welcome to browse it (which can be painful). We suggest using the SEARCH: box just to the lower right to find an item. It’s really fast. 

If you find an item of interest, you can contact our library about it referencing the title or the object ID.  If an item is of particular interest, talk to us about obtaining a digital scan of the item.
