Archives Collections List

 

The Archives of the Hunt Institute houses over 300 collections of correspondence, field notes, manuscripts and other writings. These collections are primarily original documents donated by Anglo-American individuals working in the field of botany during the twentieth century. A few of our collections do not fit that description and instead bear the imprint of World War II. These collections consist of photocopies or microfilm donated from primarily European libraries that were still reeling from the destruction wrought by war when Mrs. Hunt was collecting in the 1950s and early 1960s.



The alphabetical list below constitutes a partial list of approximately two thirds of our available holdings at this time. Collections are arranged by botanist’s name; an individual botanist may have more than one collection number, if those items constitute discrete collections with separate provenances. Oral history holdings are also included on this list; while we do not lend the tapes, photocopies of transcripts are available for our regular fee. See our Service Charges page for details. When art or other archival holdings are known, those are noted. Please check back at this site in the future, as we will continue to add to our listing. The Hunt Institute Archives is not a browsing collection; to make an appointment to research any of these collections, please contact the Archivist.

Hunt Institute's Archives considers itself a repository of last resort and counsels botanists to install their papers at their home institutions. Donate your papers to your university or institutional archive to increase historical documentation; if you are looking for an alternate repository, feel free to contact us.
