Series 1: Bibliographic and Research Notes. ca. 1870s-1890s.

Physical Description: Cartons 1-28

Arrangement

Arranged alphabetically by state, then subject, and finally, chronologically.

Content/Description

The majority of notes were taken from manuscripts and books which were part of Bancroft's collection during the years 1870 to 1890. Bibliographic notes include title, author, volume, and page citations; many notes are simple, 1- to 4-line summaries of a specific region and date noted in the left hand margin. Research notes of one to ten pages are transcriptions or summaries of historical events or persons. The miscellany files represent, chronologically, items with singular or no subject headings. The subject headings listed under each state are not necessarily uniform, but were derived from the quantity of research notes found within each state.
