    Scope and Content of Collection

    The collection primarily contains 1914-1916 date books (diaries), a 1914-1917 transit book, photos (prints and negatives), picture postcards, and a few documents and letters of Will L. Brown, San Bernardino, California, who for much of that time was a miner/prospector/trader in the Kasai region of the Belgian Congo. The date books generally talk about drilling operations, day-to-day life, and relations with other Congolese and Europeans in the area.
