The third volume contains copies of letters written during her second European tour, 1887-1888. While in Europe, she studied the traditions and lives of the people, seeking a way of life in which she could put her ideas about social welfare into action. After visiting Toynbee Hall in East London, she decided to establish such a settlement in Chicago, later known as Hull House.

Archaeological Survey of India. Annual Report, 1902/03.

Archaeological Survey of India. ANNUAL REPORT, 1902/03-.

Zug, Switzerland: Inter Documentation,
394 fiche

Annual reports of the Archaeological Survey of India discuss conservation and restoration work undertaken that year, descriptions of newly explored sites, excavations, new finds, and epigraphy. From 1904 to 1934 John Marshall held the post of Director-General of the Department. During this period the excavations at Harappa and Mohenjodaro revolutionized the perception of Indian civilization and culture. The results of the excavations confirmed that in the third millennium before Christ, the peoples of the Punjab and Sind had developed a relatively mature culture. The reports for 1902/03 to 1920/21 are arranged in two parts: administrative and scientific. Beginning in 1921/22, the reports include those of the various provincial archeological circles, formerly published separately.

Microfiche 1-15 contain an index to years 1902 to 1929. A table of contents and a list of plates appears at the beginning of each volume for 1930 to 1937.

ARCHAEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF INDIA. [REPORTS] NEW IMPERIAL SERIES, V. 1-54.

Zug, Switzerland: Inter Documentation,
597 fiche

The New Imperial Series includes archaeological work in India from 1874 to 1937. In 1871, the newly established Department of the Archaeological Survey of India began a country-wide search for all architectural and other remains characterized by their antiquity, beauty, or historic interest. In this series, James Burgess, responsible for the western districts, concentrates his attention on special classes of monuments, such as the Buddhist caves of western India, the Kankali Tila mound at Mathura, and the antiquities of the Bidar and Aurangabad districts. With the retirement of the director, Alexander Cunningham, in 1885 and the assumption by Burgess of the directorship, surveys of northern and southern India were placed in this series. The reports are monographic in format. Half of those issued between 1874 and 1902 were written by Dr. Burgess. In the early years, the survey teams focused on the discovery of Buddhist monuments. In later years this expanded to the documentation of Brahmanic, Jaina, and Islamic monuments.

George Alexander Brown, a Liverpool merchant and banker, spent his boyhood days in Baltimore. His uncle, a linen merchant, employed him in his firm, Alexander Brown & Sons of Baltimore. Brown regarded himself as an American, even though half his life was spent in England. His diaries date from his days in Baltimore. They include comments on the decline of the linen trade after 1817, his partnership in a merchant firm in Tampico, Mexico, in 1825, and his establishment in Liverpool in 1829. The diaries thereafter concern political, family, and business affairs, including notes on the arrival of American ships and reactions to events in America.

George William Frederick Villiers (1800-1870) served as Foreign Secretary in four administrations, intermittently from 1853 to 1870. His correspondence during his time in Washington covered a sensitive period in Anglo-American relations. The United States and Great Britain were partners in a profitable transatlantic trade, but Britain began to have concerns about American expansionism, especially American filibusters in Nicaragua and other areas throughout South and Central America. Clarendon did not serve during the Civil War, but believed Southern independence was assured. After the Northern Victory, it became clear the United States was going to dominate the rest of North America. For related material see the Crampton Papers.

17 reel(s)

Sir John Fiennes Twistleton Crampton was born in Ireland on August 12, 1805. He began his role in Washington when he was appointed Foreign Secretary on July 3, 1845. Eventually he served under two Ministers before he became Charge d'Affaires in 1851. In January 1852 he was appointed Minister to the United States, and served until May 28, 1856, when President Franklin Pierce broke off diplomatic relations with him because of his attempts to recruit American volunteers for service in the British Army during the Crimean War. His correspondence as a member of the British Legation in Washington covered many of the important issues in Anglo-American relations including disputes over fisheries in Canadian waters, the need for Canadian-American trade, and attempts by Americans to acquire naval bases in Cuba. In addition, major problems, such as American filibustering in Nicaragua, and clashes over possible canal routes across the American Isthmus caused disagreements. For related material see the Clarendon Papers.
