Identifier: 11/2/2
Abstract The Kennicott-Bannister Papers constitute a small but valuable collection, especially for the historian of American science. The bulk of the collection consists of the letters and diaries of the two explorers between 1857 and 1873. The papers of Henry Bannister are more complete than those of his mentor. Photographs and correspondence concerning the history of the collection are also included.
