He referred to the work of the Historical Society of Wisconsin and described the system of collecting, classifying, filing, and dis tributing valuable data relating to the history of the state in the splendid million-dollar library of the Universi ty of Wisconsin. Here in Arizona, said Dean Scarlet ,is a wealth of his torical material of supreme interest and it is most important that this valuable material be collected and placed on record thru a society or ganization for this specific purpose and assisted by adequate state appro priations. Miss Lutrell, Librarian of the Uni versity Library, told of the many priceless historic documents recently bequeathed to the Library by the late Mr.Merrill P. Freeman, a member of the Arizona Archaeological Society. The material was not yet classified, but it contained many interesting old diaries and records of Spanish and pioneer days in what is now known as Arizona. All clippings relating to Arizona are mounted and indexed on a method which has been modelled on that of the Wisconsin Historical Society described by Dean Scarlett. A Bibliography of books, pamphlets, and articles on Arizona was published by Miss Lutrell in 1913, and since that date many items have been added, making the number at this time over 2000.
