IN ORDER that members of the Kansas State Historical Society and others
interested in historical study may know the class of books we are receiving, a
list is printed annually of the books accessioned in our specialized fields.
These books come to us from three sources, purchase, gift and exchange, and fall
into the following classes: Books by Kansans and about Kansas; books on the West,
including explorations, overland journeys and personal narratives; genealogy and
local history; and books on the Indians of North America, United States history,
biography and allied subjects which are classified as general. The out-of-state
city directories received by the Historical Society are not included in this
We also receive regularly the publications of many historical societies by
exchange, and subscribe to other historical and genealogical publications which
are needed in reference work.
The following is a partial list of books which were added to the library from
October 1, 1941, to September 30, 1942. Government and state official
publications and some books of a general nature are not included. The total
number of books accessioned appeared in the report of the secretary in the
February issue of the Quarterly.
