Content and structure elements
Scope and content
Special Collections and Archives regularly receives individual manuscripts and small groupings of materials that have historical significance, but are not substantial enough to necessitate a full finding aid. For administrative and storage purposes, these materials have been grouped into an artificial collection, the Miscellaneous Manuscripts Collection.
This collection consists of materials covering a wide range of topics and format. The contents reflect the breadth of the holdings in Special Collections and Archives, with a particular emphasis on Texas history. Materials may be added to the collection on an ongoing basis. Subject headings have been assigned at the item level.
