Abstract:

The bulk of the collection consists of the letters and diaries of the two explorers between 1857 and 1873. The Kennicott correspondence is all incoming and concerns the establishment of a natural history museum at Northwestern University and the classification of various flora and fauna. The Kennicott materials also include a copy of his Alaska journal.

The papers of Henry Bannister include the five volumes of his diary, recorded between March 21, 1865 and July 5, 1873. The entries after January, 1867 are irregular; however, Bannister's papers include his correspondence between January 1, 1864 and December 21, 1905, with Kennicott and officials at the Smithsonian Institution.

Other items of interest are Bannister's memoir of the Alaska expedition and a number of manuscript essays on the expedition, Kennicott, and Russian possessions in North America. Photographs and correspondence concerning the history of the collection are included, as well as certificates and diplomas documenting his medical education.
