Description: The Deering Collection of Indian Captivities is comprised of a bibliography, together with ethnographic and historical summaries and extracts, of the collection of Indian captivities of the late Frank Cutter Deering of Saco, Maine, in the keeping of Joseph G. Deering of Biddeford, Maine, prepared under grants from the Wenner-Gren Foundation and the American Philosophical Society. Pages 1-1037 describe the books of Deering; works in the libraries of Harvard, Yale, Laval, the National Museum of Canada, the Collection de Luc Lacourciere, Quebec, and McGill University. Transcriptions and extracts from manuscripts by Frank C. Deering, captivities of Mary Storer (compiled by Jacques Rousseau, 1942), 1703, with letters; Nathaniel Segar, manuscript in the Seminaire de Quebec, Toronto Public Library; and of Edmund S. Carpenter. Summaries, too, of standard printed series, such as Thwaites, etc. Relates to northeastern, plains, western, and Canadian Indians in particular. Omitted are those 40 works found in the Greenwood collection. An important set of summaries because of the inaccessibility of the collection. Reference to both the Walsh and the Ayer lists. [N.B., duplicate numbering, 1351-1362, of different material.] This collection also includes a brief catalogue prepared by Michael J. Walsh of Goodspeed's, Boston, at death of Frank C.
