Selected materials cataloged; remainder arranged.
Correspondence, manuscripts, speeches, and articles of Barnouw. There is little correspondence in the collection and only a few manuscripts, but a large file of Barnouw's published articles and reviews is included in the papers. In addition, there are incomplete sets of two publications that Barnouw edited, WEEKLY REVIEW (1919-1921) and the NETHERLAND-AMERICA FOUNDATION MONTHLY LETTER (1924-1948, 1954-1961). Several old Dutch documents which had been collected by Barnouw are also in the collection. There is one folder of letters and documents relating to the Frisian Freedom movement during the later years of World War II. Also, Barnouw's manuscript of THE PAGEANT OF NETHERLANDS HISTORY transferred from Authors' Manuscripts Collection.
