UWRF ARC Manuscript Collection Inventories

Manuscripts are original, unique documents with literary or historical value. The River Falls Area Research Center (ARC) holds manuscripts that document the history of Northwestern Wisconsin, particularly Burnett, Pierce, Polk and St. Croix Counties. Each manuscript collection is given an RF Mss (River Falls Manuscript) or RF SC (River Falls Small Collection=1 folder) designation as part of its call number. Clicking on the call number will bring you to a collection inventory that details the contents and arrangement of the materials. (more about collection inventories) Collections are grouped here by broad subject matter or geographic region. Items that fall under more than one category may be listed multiple times.

Note:
Clicking on some of the following Collection Inventory links will navigate you away from the UW-River Falls ARC and University Archives website and onto the Wisconsin Historical Society's (WHS) pages. Please direct requests and other inquiries about these collections back to the River Falls ARC rather than the WHS.

This list is currently incomplete: more collection inventories are being added on a regular basis.
