Abstract:

"The Wilbur H. Siebert Collection contains correspondence, notes, manuscripts, student papers, maps, and photographs related to Siebert's three main research topics: American Loyalists, the settlement of Florida, and the Underground Railroad. Research material on the Underground Railroad includes the responses generated by Siebert's seven-question survey and copies and notes from a wide variety of sources: books, diaries, letters, photographs, newspaper articles, biographies and memoirs, state, county, and local histories, annual reports, trial records, U.S. and Canadian census reports, legislation, and Congressional speeches. Siebert also traveled Underground Railroad routes, interviewing agents and former fugitive slaves. He organized his research by state and county, eventually binding his notes in volumes according to the location of the Underground Railroad station or activity. Photographs available online document men and women active in the antislavery movement, homes that were Underground Railroad stations, and slaves who escaped to freedom"--Ohio Historical Society web site.
