Biography of Charles A. Beard:

Box 5 Original manuscrips (ca 1000pp)

(Includes notes, drafts of chapters,  photocopies, and other archival materials compiled for Vagts's biography of C.A.B. The manuscript  appears to be fragmentary, with only a few chapters having proceeded to the finished stage. Materials  arranged as received, many pages clearly out of sequence; completeness impossible to gauge but still a  substantial archive of primary biographical material relating to Beard. )
