This page includes finding aids for materials in all Ransom Center collections, including Art, Film, Manuscripts, Performing Arts, and Photography.
The finding aids represent ONLY collections newly cataloged or recataloged into finding aid form since 1990. Prior to 1990, all manuscripts collections were cataloged at item level and are described in the Center's card catalog. Thus many significant collections are not represented online.
For information about collections not in the finding aids list, contact the Head of Reference Services or the appropriate curator (see the Center's Departmental Directory).
The finding aids for fully cataloged collections contain a biographical sketch, scope and contents note, series descriptions, folder list, and correspondents index. The longer finding aids (on paper, more than 15 pages) have been divided into several files, usually one for each component of the inventory, to facilitate use on the web.
Preliminary inventories of not yet fully cataloged collections contain a scope and contents note and folder list, but no index of correspondents.
