Guide to Manuscripts and Archives and the American Foreign Policy Center.
Shaddy, Robert Alan
This guide describes the holdings in the manuscript collections, the university archives, and the American Foreign Policy Center, all of which are located in Louisiana Tech University's Prescott Memorial Library. The guide is divided into three sections. The first section, "Manuscript Collections," presents descriptions of 197 collections of personal and family papers, business and corporate records, photographs, diaries, original manuscripts, and other similar materials. The second section, "Collections in the University Archives," identifies 49 holdings of records, papers, and printed publications generated by the Louisiana Industrial Institute, Louisiana Polytechnic Institute, and Louisiana Tech University. These collections include the records of the office of the president of the university, as well as those of other campus divisions, colleges and departments; catalogs, bulletins, directories, yearbooks, and other publications issued by Tech since 1897; and numerous photographs of the campus, university activities, and faculty members. It is noted that the Special Collections Department also serves as a repository for books and periodicals related to the history, literature, and culture of Louisiana and the South. The final section presents a bibliography of the microform collections of primary materials in the American Foreign Policy Center. (MAB)
