The Sweet manuscript collection is a very small part of a much larger personal library, all of which was donated to UCSB.
Included in the manuscript section is correspondence, a diary, photos (Robert B. Sweet and others), scrapbooks, volumes of
engravings, and a set of stereo slides.
Robert Ballantine Sweet (1876-1956) was born in Iowa, but spent most of his life in California. He was a physician (eye and
ear specialist), longtime resident of Long Beach, and an avid book collector and bibliophile, with a wide diversity of interests.
