Series 1. Legal Documents.
Scope and Contents
This artificial collection was brought together initially as the the old American Indian Law and History Collection from miscellaneous acquisitions that had accrued over twenty years of collecting. Later the collection's scope was broadened somewhat and the title was changed. It is presently a collection of historical documents, correspondence, photographs and ephemera relating to the governments, citizenship, and lands primarily of those tribes located in Oklahoma Indian Territory. The materials in this collection are those pieces that either can not be attributed to another named collection, or otherwise are better served being in this.
This collection consists of papers and documents pertaining to the Indians of North America. Included are government, citizenship and land papers, correspondence, photographs, and a variety of other items concerning Indian affairs primarily in Indian Territory/Oklahoma. Although the majority of the material deals with Indian affairs, the collection does contain papers of a more personal nature as well.
