Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains 86 miscellaneous historical documents collected by American history professor John A. Schutz (1919-2005). The material includes 18th-20th century manuscript material including correspondence and documents related to American and British politicians and historians, among others, as well as one 1693 printed tract (incomplete).
John A. Schutz (1919-2005), was a professor, author and long-time Huntington Library reader in colonial American history. Schutz began his teaching career in 1945 at the California Institute of Technology, followed by Whittier College, and, from 1965 to 1991, at the University of Southern California. After Schutz's death, the material he had collected over the years was donated to the Huntington Library, on May 5, 2006, as part of the John A. Schutz Bequest. The Bequest included the William Ewart Gladstone Collection, Henry Cabot Lodge Collection, and the John A. Schutz Miscellany Collection.
