The collection includes course notes for Frederick Jackson Turner's history of the American West course, when Homer Cary Hockett
was a graduate assistant to Turner at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, ca. 1902-1903. Hockett later was a faculty member
at Ohio State University. Wilbur Jacobs, the donor, mentions the papers and the importance of such graduate assistants to
Turner's work, in his book, Frederick Jackson Turner's Legacy (San Marino, CA: Huntington Library, 1965), p. 14.
