Physical Description: 14.67 linear feet (14 cartons, 14 folders)

Scope and Content Note

This series is divided into three subseries based on Nasatir's published and unpublished work. All of his research materials were likely used for multiple works, and the documents were organized by following his original order, which may not represent how he used them.

Physical Description: 7.90 linear feet (7 cartons, 20 folders)

Arrangement

Chronological

Scope and Content Note

The documents in this subseries were matched against documents that appeared in the volumes Before Lewis and Clark, and include discards.

Scope and Content Note
