Major A.B. Welch Collection

 Unprocessed Material — Multiple Containers
Identifier: H2007-008

Content Description

The collection consists of one CD of transcribed writings of A.B. Welch, who lived in and around the Mandan (N.D.) from 1900 to 1945. Welch’s diaries are being transcribed by Bob Cox, great nephew of A. B. Welch, and creator of the donated CD. The writings give accounts of several Native Americans. The four hundred pages of writings include biographical information, news clippings, letters, and images. Several of the writings are of oral history interviews Welch had with some of the listed Native Americans. A copy of the index will be placed with the Accession Folder. The transcribed materials are in Microsoft Publisher format. During processing, the digital files were migrated from the disk to the SDSA's digital collections, and preservation masters were made. The collection includes an index of the Native Americans who were featured in the project.
