Manuscript Collections

The Manuscript Collection Finding Aids include all of the 200+ processed manuscript collections in the Memphis & Shelby County Room. The bulk of the information about these collections is from the Guide to the Processed Manuscript Collections in the Memphis and Shelby County Room, written and compiled by our very own Gina Cordell.

Each entry should include the following details about the collection:

  • Title
  • Subject(s)
  • Description
  • Processor
  • Contributors
  • Date
  • Materials
  • Size
  • Coverage

Most of the finding aids are available in full-text.
