The Arizona tribes included are the Hualapai, Tohono O'odham, Yavapai, Mohave, and Chiricahua Apache. The materials present for each tribe vary.

The Leggat collection consists primarily of what is frequently referred to as "gray literature," ephemeral publications that, for the most part, do not warrant item level description within a library catalog. After the purchase of the Leggat collection by Montana State University in 1966, library personnel cataloged most of the serial runs and individual monographs which, at that time, were considered significant. The remaining boxes of pamphlets, brochures, broadsides, U.S. Congressional Serial Set tear sheets and magazine articles were placed into folders within several filing cabinets. This material was reviewed again in 2012 for any pieces considered significant enough for item level cataloging and, after their removal, sorted into the four series represented here. The material concerns a wide variety of Montana historical topics, especially the history and development of Butte and Helena, state political issues, military topics, the Montana Vigilantes of 1863-1864, mining, and ...
