James M. Barry notebooks

 Collection
Identifier: MSS-0120

Scope and Contents note

This collection consists of two of Barry’s notebooks, both of them leather bound and designed as address books. One of them is an address book, the other contains a miscellany of information: some addresses, business cards, newspaper clippings, and notes on a variety of subjects, among other things. Among the contents is what appears to be a brief history of Barry’s employment, 1910-1932.
