This page contains links to the finding aids created by the Lucretia Hanson Little History Room.

A finding aid is a descriptive guide to an archival collection.  It may contain biographical or historical information about the person or organization who collected or created the material.  It also contains an inventory of the contents of the collection.  Each finding aid can be on the History Room website and on a printable PDF, and the XML (EAD/MARC 21) code is also viewable.

This is only a small selection of the finding aids available.  Please contact the History Room for more information.
