Arranged alphabetically

Content/Description

General information, encompassing more than one of the cities or states or time periods, is found in the subject files; however, relevent filing information is often lacking from the notes.The notes include among general research topics biography files, including profiles about Columbus, Cortes, and other early voyagers. Often occuring are virtually blank sheets of paper with a single subject heading. Nothing has been detached fromthose items. They remain a history of the researcher's topical concerns.
A few working drafts for portions of Bancroft's History of Mexico can also be found here, along with production notes for the volumes, although the majority of these are included in Hubert Howe Bancroft, Records of the Library and Publishing Companies (BANC MSS B-C 7).
