The papers of Robert Kennicott and Henry M. Bannister constitute a small but valuable collection, especially for the history of American science. The bulk of the collection consists of the letters and diaries of the two explorers, for the years 1857-1873. The papers of Henry Bannister are more extensive than those of his mentor. Photographs and correspondence concerning the history of the collection are also included.
