Museums, archives, and subject files

Subseries contains resources acquired by McLennan due largely in his research interest in Northwest coast art and design. The series consists largely of photographs taken by McLennan during his travels to museums and archival institutions of artifacts. There are also collections of photographs acquired by McLennan from archival institutions which he had copied. Correspondence between professionals at museums and archives is also sometimes located within the file with the photographs. The museums and archives which have files in this subseries are geographically very diverse. As a note of interest, some objects were taken out especially for McLennan, when access to them by the general public would not normally be granted.
