The Helen Hance Papers consist of a daunting amount of handwritten research that was done before the age of the personal computer, and over a dozen manuscripts and writings that were born from the expertise that research imbued her with. If her success had equaled her effort, Hance’s name would be more widely known today. This collection consists of 1.5 linear feet of artifacts that include hundreds of pages of handwritten research, travel brochures, drawings, newspaper clippings, correspondence, published and unpublished manuscripts, and maps.
