SCOPE AND CONTENT

The E. Digby Baltzell Papers consist of manuscripts and research sources pertaining to two of Baltzell's books, Puritan Boston and Quaker Philadelphia (1979) and Sporting Gentlemen (1995). The first series includes manuscripts generated in various stages of the publication of the book Puritan Boston and Quaker Philadelphia, namely, drafts of discrete chapters, complete manuscript (including appendix, notes, and index), a bound page proof, and two sets of master page proof with the author's editing. 

The second series is divided into three subseries: Manuscripts, notes, and correspondence; Clippings; and Reference books. The subseries of Manuscripts, notes, and correspondence contains the page proof of the book Sporting Gentlemen; material used for publication including figure pages, photo prints for inserts, tables and statistics; the author's research notes; and correspondence and other material related to the research or publication. The Clippings and Reference books include all the research sources the author had referred to in producing the book.
