Maryland Manuscripts

The Maryland Manuscripts grouping consists of a wide variety of materials, such as letters, diaries, printed ephemera, and business ledgers, which have been described individually. Among these items are a number which relate to the environment, including meteorological journals, and notebooks of weather observations, reports of river commissioners, and correspondence. Subject headings in the card catalog under which these documents can be found include: parks, entomology, meteorology, weather, climate, rivers, and Fishing-Maryland.


Among the departmental photographic holdings are images, dating primarily from 1920 to 1940, which depict park lands and facilities, sewer and drain construction, and various rural and mountain settings.
