A copy of an early or even an original syllabus is in the Columbus Memorial Library, Organization of American States, Washington, DC; a copy is in the Magnaghi Papers, Central Upper Peninsula and University Archives, Northern Michigan University, Marquette (hereafter: Magnaghi Papers). A review of it shows how the course slowly emerged. There were only twenty-four lectures listed and an unidentified lecture topic at the end with readings on British North America. Lectures on Spanish and English colonial life and culture, and the international rivalry of the eighteenth century are missing. Bolton to Mr. Platt, 05/17/1921, Bolton Papers, Out.
