Brief Description:

The Alexander C. Burr Papers date from 1940 to 1977. The majority of the material consists of miscellaneous reports from the 1950s regarding North Dakota lignite and the state's 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 placed in the Orin G. Libby Photographic Collection were five North Dakota related photographs. Also separated and accessioned as individual Orin G. Libby Manuscript Collections were copies of the Polish Review (OGL#1183) and the Netherlands News and Netherlands News Digest (OGL#1184). Each of these serials were published during World War II, and designed to make the American public aware of the plight of Nazi occupied countries.
