Biographical / Historical
When the Barrett Minor Authors Literary Collection came to Special Collections in 1968, the entire group of hundreds of authors was given the accession number MSS 9040. Around the time the department moved into its new facility in 2004 through 2012, the individual authors in this collection were each given their own manuscript numbers and were cataloged in Virgo. The work of the Barrett volunteers formed the basis of much of the work of description.
The index itself was kept with other card files in a card catalog in Room 138. When this card catalog was removed, the Barrett Minor index card files were boxed and given a new manuscript number (MSS 16730).
.5 Cubic Feet (five card file boxes (3"x5"))
