Thomas Earl Anderson Collection
Scope and Contents
The collection reflects Anderson's special interests in genealogy and local history and consists chiefly of the materials gathered in researching in these areas. Materials in the collection include newsclippings, family charts, genealogical notes, census information, correspondence, copies of material from reference sources, maps, and miscellaneous printed ephemera. While containing copies of documents from as early as 1894 (and perhaps earlier), most of the material in the collection is from the period of the 1950s-1990s.
