Guide to the Western Historical Manuscripts Collection
This issue of the Guide to the Western Historical Manuscripts Collection supplements the previous Guide, published in 1952. It includes the acquisitions of the Collection since 1951, and combined with the earlier publication, constitutes a complete listing of the holdings of the Collection as of July l, 1956. John A. Galloway, for two years a staff member, now of the History Department at Arkansas State College, did the necessary research for the present bulletin, and prepared the manuscript. The manuscript was typed and the index prepared by Mrs. Jane R. Barry, of the staff of the Manuscripts Collection. The considerable growth of the Collection during the thirteen years of its existence has been facilitated greatly by the unremitting (and unremitted) efforts of friends of historical research and of the University of Missouri, some of them professional historians, but more of them just interested citizens. We are grateful. Sincerely, James N. Primm, Director.--Page 3.
