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 that relate to horse racing and breeding, including lists of retailers at horse shows and the constitution and bylaws of the Association of Maryland Horse Shows. These items can be located in the card catalog under the following headings: Horse--Retailers--Maryland, Horse Shows, and Horses.


Among the departmental photographic holdings are images, dating from 1900 through 1971, which depict various horses and equestrian activities. The photographs show individual horses as well as race tracks and horse sales.
