JAMES GRANT COLLECTION 1907-72
 
James Grant, an attorney who immigrated to Iowa around 1836, became a member of the Iowa Territorial Legislature, district judge for counties in northeast Iowa, president of the Chicago and Rock Island Railroad, and representative for Scott County in the Iowa (State) Legislature.  The James Grant Collection of the Putnam Museum of History and Natural Sciences consists of 15 linear feet of personal papers, correspondence, financial records, and documents related to Grant's various careers.
 
The organization of this collection is determined by an item-level card index which lists dates and subjects of correspondence by correspondent; documents are classified as General File, Legal Case File, and Personal File.  These three files comprise the main series of the collection.  The General File consists mostly of correspondence and is organized chronologically, with primary documents dated from 1843 to 1887.  The Legal Case File is organized alphabetically by case, with most documents dated in the 1870s and 1880s.  The Personal File is organized by topic and includes biographical information, financial records, notebooks, correspondence with relatives, and other personal records; primary records in the Personal File are dated 1830s to 1880s.  The following outline is a folder-level inventory of the James Grant Collection.

JAMES GRANT COLLECTION              NOTES
 
When the James Grant Collection was inventoried in 1998, an existing system of organization was used in order that the item-level card index to the collection would still be useful.  At the time of the 1998 inventory, some documents were found to be mis-filed; either the dates had been mis-identified during the previous organization and indexing of the collection, or the documents had been mis-filed since.  If dates had been mis-identified at the time of indexing, the card index will refer to the wrong dates.  The following notes will help to locate documents that had been incorrectly filed by date.
