Manuscript Collection

The Society of American Archivists defines “manuscript” as: 1) a handwritten document, 2) an unpublished document, or 3) an author’s draft of a book, article, or other work submitted for publication. Azusa Pacific’s Manuscript Collection includes handwritten documents from people such as Archbishop John Carroll, S.S. Wesley, and King James I, unpublished documents such as Mrs.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). It also contains Civil War letters, Gold Rush letters, and John Muir letters.
