American West
The American West Collection includes:

Over 300 manuscripts – ranging from the original manuscript journal and papers of James Audubon, and a twelve page letter of General Custer, to the logbook of a cattle trail driver and the Hinman papers describing the overland trail to California and the Gold Rush.
Broadsides – a host of extremely rare or unique ephemeral material including advertisements, claim certificates, cheques, photos, wanted notices and news-sheets – all of which are superb visual resources.
Maps – an important and underutilized resource for teaching the American West – partly due to their size and unwieldy nature – partly due to their rarity.
Rare printed works – the Graff collection includes many unique or extremely rare items – ranging from extra-illustrated volumes and association copies to city directories and pamphlets and leaflets
