J. Neilson Barry Papers 1932-1937 by J. Neilson Barry( )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Correspondence that Barry kept during his research about the Lewis and Clark expedition from 1932 to 1937, while he was a member of the Trailseekers Council. The council aimed to recreate old West trails with as much accuracy as possible. The correspondence in this collection deals with his attempts to find an accurate recreation of the trail used by the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The correspondence was with a variety of forestry officials, two in particular, George Weisel (the donor of part of the collection) and Elers Koch (from whom Weisel received the correspondence). Barry's correspondence contains a wealth of information concerning the Lewis and Clark Expedition, including maps and theories about mistakes made during the journey. To construct his theories, Barry used many of Colter's notes and maps, which were in the possession of the Forestry Service. He also gathered information from miners and from members of the Nez Percé Indian tribe who were familiar with the area. This collection also contains correspondence from 1952 in the form of a letter to Professor Eleanor Dougherty and a letter to President J.J. Donovan, both of the College of Great Falls. In these letters Barry steps away from Colter's map-making efforts and instead analyzes the work of William Clark in light of later mapping discoveries
