Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection consists of photocopies, transcripts, and microfilm of correspondence and other documents found in various French Archives and Depositories. The bulk of these materials were collected by the Illinois History Survey under the leadership of Clarence W. Alvord and Theodore C. Pease in the early twentieth century. The Survey collected the materials in the course of preparing two series of Illinois history, The Centennial History of Illinois and Collections of the Illinois State Historical Library, from about 1907 through 1939. The selection of the material therefore reflects the research aims of those works.

The contents of this collection were described in detail in the Manuscripts Guide to Collections at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (1976). The relevant pages are attached here in PDF format for download.
