The Society of American Archivists defines "manuscript" as: 1) a handwritten document, 2) an unpublished document, or 3) an author's draft of a book, article, or other work submitted for publication. The Azusa Pacific University's Manuscript Collection includes handwritten documents from people such as Archbishop John Carroll, S. S. Wesley, John Muir, and Will James, unpublished documents such as Mrs. James J. Ayers' diary, and book drafts from Clifford Drury (Nine Years With The Spokane Indians) and Gloria Lothrop (Recollections Of The Flathead Mission).
