[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

The Alexander C. Burr Papers, 1940-1977, consist mainly of miscellaneous reports from the 1950s regarding North Dakota lignite and other state natural resources. Also included is a statistical analysis of Charles Carothers' participation in the first North Dakota Constitutional Convention in 1889. Carothers was the youngest member of the Convention and Burr's maternal uncle.

Separated and accessioned as individual collections are copies of the Polish Review (OGL 1183) and the Netherlands News and Netherlands News Digest (OGL 1184). Each of these serials was published during World War II and was designed to make the American public aware of the plight of Nazi occupied countries.
