Tho growth of tho work of the Ne
braska State Historical society in tho
last few years brings more and more
into prominence tho naturo of tho part
played by this institution in saving ma
terial relating to Nebraska. Tho soci
ety, indoed, was organized long ago by
prominent NebraskanB who saw that
the work should them bo begun. But
tho young state was in its buoyant ado
lescenco, when it could not pay atten
tion to it3 autobiography. From 1878
until 1893 the work of tho society had to
be adjusted to small quarters, little rtv
enue and small interest on the part of
tho public Through tho etTorts or its
members and patrons the Nobraska
State Historical society was mado a
state institution in ISS-'J, and from that
time the important work of gathering
matter on tho history of Nebraska bo
came one of tho duties of tho state.
An annual appropriation of 85&0 for
tho years 18S3 and 1SS1 initiated Btato
expenditures for historical work in Ne
braska. It might be said that tho set
ting apart of the historical block in 1SG7
was an expression in dollars and cents
of tho state's interest in tho work. But
it is an old story how tho legislature
later gave the historical block to tho
city of Lincoln for a market square.
Very slowly the generosity of legisla
tures increased. The excellent work of
Professor George E. Howard, during
the time secretary of the historical soci
ety from 1SS5 to 1S01, accomplished
great things for the organization of the
work and the collection into tho library
of the Bociety of rare sets of colonial ar
chives. Through his efforts were secured
entire series of publications, such as
the Massachusetts Historical Society
publications which reach from 1S92 to
A now ora in the development of the
society's work began in 1S03 when two
very important changes wero made. The
board of oftteers of the society ap
pointed a person to till tiie office of
assistant secretary and librarian, created
that year, who should give his attention
entirely to that work. At the same
time, through the generosity of the
regents of the university and the efforts
of the officers of the society and univer
sity, large quarters were set apart for
the use of the society in the library
building of the university. Thus the
society came into possession of its fire
proof rooms, and effort were redoubled
to gain proper recognition before the
legislature. The nature of the work is
such that the amount done is in direct
proportion to the appropriations avail
able. The public have a right to expect,
therefore, that the appropriations of
33.500, 55,000 and 810,000 in 1807, 1899
and 1901 will produce commensurate re
sults. The officers feel sure that this is
The "office force,'' as distinguished
from the board of tive officers, president,
two vice presidents, secretary and treas
urer, elected by the historicai society,
consists of "assistant secretary and
librarian, Jay Amos Barrett, who has
general charge of the ork, and who has
occupied this office since its creation in
1S93. Miss Daisy M. Palin has for two
years handled the large newspaper mail
and had charge of the work of classify
ing, arranging, labeling, etc., the files of
accumulated papere. She has bean
made "newspaper clerk" by the board.
In the general work aside from the
newspapers it waB found necessary to
have the help of another man. The
present year the services of A . E. Shel
don were secured to till this need.
While he appears as "director of file
work," the part of the work assigned to
him comprises general oversight of tho
collection of newspapers, management
of the museum and collection of curios,
gathoring of Nebraska state publica
tions and assistance in oditing tho vol
umoj which the Bocioty issues.
Tho work of tho socioty has grown
rapidly and now embraces many linos nf
collection anil investigation. It is tho
purposo of tho association to gatbor,
into a securo and permunont place all
possible material bearing on tho history
of tho state, and to publish just as much
of tho valuablo written matoria! as thoro
may be funds for. So far eight volumes
have been issued, and two moro aro in
press. One of these consists of the Tip
ton manuscripts which aro regarded as
a unique contribution to tho biographi
cal literaturo of Nebraska public men.
Tho library of the society has grown to
1,500 volumes and pamphlets together,
which is rich in two particulars. An ex
change of publications is maintained
with other historical societies and
libraries, from which comes a set of his
torical publications extromely valuablo
to the historians. The nucleus of tho
colonial documents founded by the wis
dom and foresight of Professor Howard
baB been added to until this part of tho
library is depended on by students of
colonial history in the Btato. Tho soci
ety aims, of course, to keep everything
extant on Nebraska, and is gathering
new and o!d material of this kind con
stantly. Nearly complete sets of stato
publications are to be consulted at its
roome. It has the only large collection
of Nebraska newspapers in the state,
and is the only library where about all
local Nebraska newspapers are to bo
seen. A great clipping bureau for
duplicate papers is carried on, and a
groat mass of Nebraska und other mato
ria! made readily available. In connec
tion with the large and rapidly growing
collection of curios, it is noteworthy
that the socio:y has been able to com
mence active field work in arcbaeology
this year. The services of Mr. E. E.
Blackman aro engaged for this, and a
great deal of archaeological research is
being made. Mr. Blackman, as is well
known, is an enthusiastic hunter after
Indian things, and whilo he is compara
tively young as an exclusive archaeolo
gist, he has long studied along this line.
He has tho support of the noted archae
ologist, J. T. Browor, who will cooper
ate with Mr. Blackman this autumn
in making an archaeological survey of
the eastern end of our state. Another
special feature of the work is a circular
issued several times a year in cooper
ation with newspapers. Still another
departure is a plan to issue a biennial
report beside the collections of material
in hound volumes.
The public will be made cognizant
soon of the plans of the society for a
special building to accommodate tho
rapidly growing work. The officers in
vito the public to use the library and
collection of newspapers, and to linger
about the collection of curios indefinitely.
