APPENDIX A
Item List of John D. Shane's "Historical Collections"

No complete guide to Shane's collection currently exists. Archival research for this project failed to locate at least five bound volumes of his "Historical Collections" and "Collections in Church History" which were listed in the 1864 catalog of materials auctioned at his death. This is probably not a major problem in assessing Shane's interview collection, however, as Lyman Draper examined Shane's notebooks before the auction and pronounced some of the now-missing volumes as almost empty, or of little interest. Where appropriate, Draper's comments on these materials are noted in the item list below. 1

Shane's extant "Historical Collections" are divided among three repositories. The Draper Manuscripts of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin include Shane's volumes 1-6, 8, 11, 13, 14, and 16. The Presbyterian Historical Society in Philadelphia owns volumes 12 and 17; volumes 7, 9, 10, and 15 are missing, but one of these is most likely an unidentified volume of Shane's historical collections found in the John Day Caldwell Papers at the Cincinnati Historical Society. 2

Of Shane's "Collections in Church History," the Presbyterian Historical Society owns volumes 1, 3, 5-7, 9-11, and an unnumbered volume entitled "Baptist Coll."; volume 2 is in the John Day Caldwell Papers at the Cincinnati Historical Society; volumes 4 and 8 remain unlocated.

I have compiled the following item list of Shane's "Historical Collections" from the 1980 microfilm edition of the Draper Manuscripts ( State Historical Society of Wisconsin), Shane's manuscript notebooks at the Presbyterian Historical Society, and those at the Cincinnati Historical Society. Information on volume 17, which was not available for examination at the Presbyterian Historical Society at the time of my visit in July 1991, comes from a published guide to the microfilm edition of their collection. 3

Each entry below lists: Shane's item number, name of informant or source, location (if known), date (if known), Shane's page number (if known), and Draper's reference number in parentheses, where appropriate. (Under the notation system used for the Draper Manuscripts, a citation to "11 CC 1" refers to page 1 of volume 11 of Series CC, the Kentucky Papers.) Shane labeled some of his short entries as "mem." or "memoranda," and these are noted below as [mem.]. Other
