This fragmentary collection contains the personal papers of Austin Mires. All of the correspondence is incoming, received in 1900 during his tenure as census supervisor. There are several essays which cover a wide range of topics. Though mostly unsigned, they are attributed to him except for one which appears to have been written by Bill Rolf. It is obvious that Mires enjoyed history, particularly the history of Kittitas County and the early interaction with Native Americans. He traveled throughout the young Northwest, at times for pleasure or to hunt or for work purposes. Regardless, the essays in which he recorded these travels paint a colorful picture of pioneer life and the wilds of Washington. The dates for the essays are the date of travel, not when it was written. Copies of speeches on the topic of slavery from the 1850s reflect Mires' political interests. There are also copies of documents from two of Mires' own campaigns
