of private collections, but the Uni-
versity has refused to sell it.
DAK Y Contains Many Items

diaries and account books are the
most interesting or most used be-
cause of the wide variety of items
housed in the Collections.
One highlight of the collections
is an 1802 customs book which,
gives the names of the captains'
and their ships which sailed
around Mackinac Island in that
year and it also lists the ships'
cargoes which consisted mainly of
liquor and playing cards.
Contains Inventory
Some of the University's docu-
ments which are located in Rack-
ham are registrar's records from
the 1860's through part of the
1940's. These records are closed to
the public except when special per-
mission is granted as in the case
to authors doing biographies on
someone who is a University alum-
nus for information on the per-
son's University career.

The present exhibit at Rackham
includes such items of interest asC
an 1863 auction inventory of
former U President Archibald Tap-
pan's household goods. Various
paintings of the campus done inI
the years 1855 to 1870 are also on
display. The first city directory of
Detroit made in 1837. the diary of
a U undergraduate of 1870, and a
handwritten newspaper of 18461
with a handpainted picture of Fort
Wilkins are a few of the journals
of historical interest on view now.
There are 112 collections of
Civil War papers owned by the
Collections. These consist mainly
of letters written by the soldiers
themselves and by their families.
There are very few manuscripts
by nationally known personalities
in this collection, as is true
throughout the library, because1
the content of the papers is what

is of primary importance regard-
less of author.
Many of Michigan's present day
large industries, such as mining,
lumber, and automobile, have do-
nated their early records to be
housed at Rackham because they
are of a valuable nature to anyone
doing research on Michigan of a
century ago.
The Historical Collections are'
supported by the University in-
dependently from the University
Library. Most of the material in
the collections are acquired
through donations and the aid of
alumni of the University.
The Collections are used by peo-
ple from all over the State in writ-
ing articles of historical signifi-
cance. Other institutions use the
facilities of this library as do many
graduate students and professors
at the University.
