Reverend Myron Eells was a prolific writer who documented his work, his surroundings, and his travels. The collection contains articles and books, manuscripts, correspondence, speeches and sermons. A series of six scrapbooks, "The Indians of Puget Sound", contains drawings, photographs and detailed descriptions of the life and culture of those with whom he worked and lived. Travel journals, census reports, books and pamphlets in Pacific Northwest Indian languages and the Eells family Bible are part of this group.
These records are a selection from the overall collection.
