SERIES 11 - RESEARCH NOTES AND WRITINGS

SERIES DESCRIPTION

        Series 11, Research Notes and Writings, is arranged alphabetically into two categories based on authorship (C. F. Himes and Joseph A. Murray), and thereafter the notes and writings under each author are arranged alphabetically by topic (and then chronologically as necessary).
        The notes and writings of C. F. Himes include his research on Thomas Cooper (including corrected drafts), photography, and his and his wife's family genealogies and histories.  A fable titled "The Stupid Bear and the Crafty Old Fox," perhaps written for his grandchildren, is found among these writings.  Also among Himes' writings is a copy of "A Sketch of Dickinson College" with extensive marginal notes, presumably in anticipation of a second edition.
        The research notes and writings of Joseph A. Murray consist primarily of family history notes and biographical materials regarding local personalities.  Also included is a draft of a letter to the Presbyterian Banner.
