The collection contains the papers created and collected by John Canse. Although the arrangement in the two boxes follows a logical pattern, the location of a particular record might have been dictated by the size of the document. Hence one topic may be found in both boxes. As a Methodist minister, Canse was interested in topics dealing with religion, in particular, with Methodism in the Northwest.
