Title: Calendar of the papers of Mirabeau Buonaparte Lamar. compiled and edited by Michael R. Green.
Description: The 1982 edition of the Calendar of the Papers of Mirabeau Buonaparte Lamar contains not only the calendared papers, but also a preface and introduction with a brief Lamar biography, a detailed account of the provenance and accession history of the papers, an extensive scope and content description, and an addenda and errata section. While some information in this finding aid is taken directly from the calendar--including the above listing of geographic areas, events, and other subjects--its introductory matter contains a wealth of additional biographical, provenance, and scope and content information for the collection. The published calendar includes dates, names, location, a brief summary of the content, number of pages, and other descriptive notes regarding format or condition for each item. It also assigns a document number to each item, which can be used to locate the physical box number for the item in the inventory of this finding aid.
