Danky, James P.; And Others
The library, archives, iconographic collections, museum, and film archives of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin (Madison) are described, with an emphasis on the history of women in the United States and Canada. The library features works on frontier/utopian communities, ethnic groups, women's organizations, women and labor unions, women's political groups outside the mainstream, family life, spiritualism, genealogy, and anthropology. The archives are a major repository for manuscripts of private individuals and organizations and for Wisconsin state, county, and local governmental records, legal documents, speeches, scrapbooks, and reminiscences. Topics of collections include labor, social action, theater, and mass communications. Wisconsin manuscripts document all facets of the state's history and include diaries, correspondence, interviews, and articles. The iconographic collection consists of photographs, lithographs, paintings, drawings, posters, cartoons, postcards, lantern slides, magazine clippings and advertisements, catalogs, business cards, and other graphics. The film archive contains an extensive United Artists film collection, scripts from the Warner collection, silent films, and television programs. Finding aids, such as guides and files, are identified for each section of the historical society. (KC)
