Collection History

Custodial History

The Pyne-Henry Collection of manuscripts relating to Princeton and its alumni was formed in 1894. While some documents related to the history of the University, many related to the careers of significant alumni and this remains a part of the manuscript collection at the Manuscripts Division of Firestone Library. The Library assigned PH numbers to each document, and continued to so until 1909 (PH2082) when the Librarian changed the numbering of manuscripts to AM (for autograph manuscript). At some point other documents relating to Princeton's early history from other sources were added to what came to be known in the University Archives as the Pyne-Henry Collection.
