Crane, William Carey, 1816-1885.Baylor University - Central Libraries Rare Books and Special Collections9.85 linear feet (13 document boxes and 4 oversized boxes)The Royston C. Crane Collection consists of various materials pertaining to three generations of the Crane family (William Carey Crane, Royston C. Crane, Sr., and Royston C. Crane, Jr.) as well as Baylor University both at Independence, Texas and at Waco, Texas. The chronology stretches from 1671 to 1959, but the bulk of the materials range from the 1880s to the early 1950s. Much of the collection is comprised of correspondence and literary productions, but there are also drawings, legal documents, financial documents, photographic materials, and scrapbooks that are important to the history of Baylor University. Royston C. Crane, Sr. was the primary donor of his father's collection, but when he donated his own materials, they were subsequently lumped together with those of his father. Since then, prior to this finding aid, the materials were separated into two collections.Contact InformationFinding AidCatalog Record

What are finding aids?
Finding aids are records that describe collections and what they contain.
People who work at an institution that owns collections write the finding aids, and the
institution contributes finding aids to ArchiveGrid. We provide links to websites
for the departments which manage their institution's finding aids, so you can contact
them when you read a finding aid and want more information about something inside
the collection that interests you.
What is the difference between archives, manuscripts and special collections?

while manuscripts and special collections typically store and preserve rare materials
and donated collections. Please explore our website to learn more about the world of archives!
