Scope and content

This series comprises the voluminous notes and files assembled by Professor Munro over the course of about fifty years of doing research, initially for his graduate work and then for his books, articles and addresses that appeared in print or online, and the relatively few manuscripts that remained unpublished. This material was also used in the preparation of his lectures to his students, portions of which are occasionally present.

This series is arranged into two sections, “research notes” and “research files”. The first section begins with bibliographic material in the form of card indices of books and articles consulted, along with bibliographic notes. These are followed by research notes taken from the archival and printed sources Professor Munro consulted. The notes include a vast amount and range of information, some of it specific data and some analytical, that he assembled during general research and on his many research trips.

The “research notes” were used for many purposes, including compiling the “research files”. These contain hundreds of tables, charts, maps, and overheads, along with notes, some correspondence and copies of archival material, elements of printed sources, and drafts of manuscripts. Duplicates, where identified, have been removed and destroyed. Some of the files contain photocopies of original material, which have been retained where the originals could not be located.
