Abstract:

The bulk of the John Burnham papers consist of Burnham's correspondence from 1891 through 1939, the majority relating to wildlife conservation.

Additional materials include written manuscripts, newspaper and magazine clippings, photographs, speeches, scrapbooks, and various organizational and government documents. A significant part of the collection documents conservation work related to New York State and Adirondack Park. Portions of the collection contain materials that relate to John Burnham's work and legacy, and were created by his son Koert Burnham after John's death.
