Custodial History

Michael Tate donated this manuscript to the Criss Library University Archives on July 29, 2013. He had been in possession of the manuscript since the late 1970s, when it had been found in a file labeled "History Club Archives." The manuscript had apparently been donated to the University of Omaha History Club in the 1950s or 1960s by an unknown person. Although the origin of the manuscript is unknown, textual analysis led Michael Tate to consider it authentic.
