Document Type: Archival Material

Notes: Holograph.
Notebooks and papers written by Nicollet mainly during the 1838 expedition he led for the U.S. Corps of Topographical Engineers in the Upper Mississippi River region, especially the Minnesota and upper Missouri Rivers in Minnesota and South Dakota. Most of the notes were assembled for his map entitled "Hydrographical basin of the upper Mississippi River ..." (1843), and for a grammar and dictionaries of both the Chippewa and Dakota languages; the latter consist of extensive lists of aboriginal names and phrases with their French or English equivalents. The collection also includes "Quelques notes en montant la Rivière St. Pierre en 1838," the only account of the beginning of that expedition, later recorded in journals, and "Division de la Nation Titons," written in June 1839 while Nicollet was in Fort Pierre, as well as a few letters addressed to him. (For detailed contents, see description included with the collection.).
Mostly in French.
Probably written in 1838 (with one item, cited above, written in 1939), although most items are undated.
Reproduction Notes: Microfilm. [New York, N.Y. : American Museum of Natural History, 1987]. 1 microfilm reel ; 35 mm.
Description: ca. 40 items : maps ; 34 cm. or smaller.
