Abstract:

There are 71 manuscripts or portions by Burroughs including "Breath of Life," "A Critical Glance into Darwin," "Emerson and his Journals," "Gospel of Nature," "Hazards of the Past," "Hepatica," "A Hunt for the Nightingale," "The Last Harvest," "Leaf and Tendril," "The Long Road," "The New Materialism," "Noon of Science," and "Pepacton."

Also "The Phantoms Behind Us," "President Roosevelt as a Nature Lover and Observer," "The Return," "Riverby," "Science and Literature," "Time and Change," "Under the Apple Trees," "Waiting," and "Ways of Nature." There are also three manuscripts about Burroughs by others.

The correspondence of Burroughs discusses his daily life; sitting for artists; health; writing; travels; visitors; marriage and family; car; homes; philosophy of writing, life and economics; feelings about Germany and World War I; auto camping trips with Thomas A. Edison, Harvey Firestone and Henry Ford; and his death.

Other topics discussed include nature; the weather; England; the Harriman Expedition to Alaska; locusts; travel in North America in 1870; Scotland; and "nature fakers" particularly Henry H. Cross, William J. Long, Ernest Thompson Seton, Abbott H. Thayer and Henry W. Warren.

People discussed include Clara Barrus, Henri Bergson, Julian Burroughs, Ursula North Burroughs, Hamlin Garland, William Dean Howells, Ernest Ingersoll, John Jay Knox, Edgar Lee Masters, John Muir, Cartaino Sciarrino Pietro, Archibald Roosevelt, Quentin Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, Orlando Rouland, Eugene A. Rowland, Alfred H. Sellers, Henry D. Thoreau, Walt Whitman, Woodrow Wilson, and William Winter.

Of special interest are a 1909 friendship calendar with autograph entries by several contemporary authors; 53 birthday greetings to Burroughs on his 70th birthday; an autograph agreement to take a camping trip signed by Burroughs, Clara Burrus, the Thomas A. Edisons, the Henry Fords, and the Harvey S. Firestones; and a lock of Burroughs' hair.

There are also biographical sketches of Burroughs; photographs of oil paintings by Orlando Rouland; sketches by Rouland, E.M. Allen and Myron Beecher Benton; photographs of Burroughs; printed articles by and about him; brochures; postcards; and a John Burroughs Nature Calendar.
