The Robert Robinson Manuscript Collection

 Collection
Identifier:  SCM 384

Scope and Contents

This collection consists entirely of three manuscript notebooks. Volume one contains notes on the Hebrew text of the Old Testament, as well as financial notes from a church in Kersey (1896-97). The second volume is a manuscript concordance of Ecclesiasticus. The third volume contains notes on the history of missions.

These notebooks were given to the Seminary sometime before Jan. 16, 1939, when they were marked by the library. They were catalogued with the library's Alumni Alcove collection but were removed to the Archives sometime in the late 1980s. These notebooks were organized as a separate manuscript collection in March of 1997.
