Leon Holland Papers, 1877-1963

Administrative Information

ABOUT THE COLLECTION 
Acquisition:The Leon Holland Papers, including 440 civil engineering drawings and surveys, were removed in 1981 from the attic of what presumably had been the Holland family home in South Kingstown by University of Rhode Island Archivist David C. Maslyn. The new owners of the home, upon discovering the material in the attic, had contacted the Special Collections Department to determine its interest in the papers. Beyond that, the provenance of the papers is unknown and they were in no particular order when they were obtained by the Special Collections Department.
Accruals:No further materials are expected for this collection.
