This collection consists of historical ephemera from the western United States and Canada, specifically excluding the state
of California. Types of materials include road maps and geographical maps, pamphlets, brochures, guides, articles, magazines,
souvenirs, scrapbooks, city information sheets, fact books, gazetteers, and other odd bits of ephemera. Most items are of
a promotional nature directed at tourism for the state, county, city or region. National parks and state history comprise
the bulk of the subject matter. All decades from 1900 through the 1960s are well represented throughout the collection, though
not necessarily for every state; several items date from the late 1800s.
