Abstract:

The collection consists of letters, manuscripts (including 9 journals and 2 sketch books), and photographs arranged in three separate groups. The first group of papers concern Gunnison himself: his journal kept in Florida and Georgia in 1840, information about Wisconsin Territory (1841), the Stansbury Expedition (1849-50), life among the Mormons, the expedition that Gunnison led from St. Louis to Utah (1853), and the official communications related to his death. The second group contains letters written by his wife's family in the South during the Civil War and also some Bunnison and Briard family materials. The third group concerns his nephew, Charles Andrew Gunnison, who traveled in Europe and Japan with San Francisco area businessman Timothy Hopkins.
