Series VII: Books

All books were gifts of Edith Graham Blake.

Per the original typed finding aid, books were boxed as follows - Books by Hough: Box 48: A-O; Box 49: P-S; Box 50 T-Z. Box 50 also contains: Books with Contributions by Hough and Books Re: Hough Family. The books were then listed in the finding aid without box numbers being assigned to the individual books. In converting the finding aid to an EAD document, box numbers were assigned to the individual books in the list based on the original statement.
