Abstract:

45 scrapbooks consisting primarily of: newspaper clippings about former slaves and men prominent in the abolition movement; articles and extracts from periodicals and books which mention the "Underground Railroad;" and correspondence with those who still remembered the "Railroad" and its operations. There are especially extensive materials on the state of Ohio, but also include: Canada, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, "southern states," Vermont, Washington D.C., and Wisconsin.

Each scrapbook volume includes a typescript table of contents in front of the volume and a bookplate giving the official title of the collection as the: "Collection of Wilbur Henry Siebert Relating to the Underground Railroad and Fugitive Slaves." The bookplate includes an image of an engraving of Charles T. Webber's 1893 painting, The Underground Railroad.

Materials include: manuscript and typescript letters to Siebert, autograph manuscript and typescript notes by Siebert, manuscript maps, printed pamphlets and maps (some annotated), clippings, statistics, typescript and manuscript transcripts of materials on the UR from many sources, student papers written for Siebert's history courses taught at Ohio State University, a few photographs, and other materials.
