University of Idaho

Manuscript Group 350


Manuscript and articles, 1946-1984
1 cubic foot

The bound typescript for Beacon for Mountain and Plain was transferred to the manuscript accessions from the Day-NW collection in 1986; the remaining material was sent to Calvin Warnick by Gibbs for an exhibit held May 14, 1989, after which it was deposited in the university library. The two accessions were combined and processed by Judith Nielsen in September 1991.


This record group contains a three volume corrected typescript of Gibbs' history of the University of Idaho and 2 books and many articles authored by him which were published in a variety of popular magazines. The latter formed part of an exhibit held at the university on May 14, 1989. Also included is an oversize framed photograph of Rafe Gibbs and Alfred Dunn, the artist who illustrated many of Gibbs' stories.

Each accession forms its own series. The stories in series II are arranged alphabetically by journal.
