Finding Aid


The papers of Wallace W. Atwood (1872-1949), geographer, geologist, and President of Clark University spans the period 1901-1946, but by far the largest amount dates from after 1920. These papers consist largely of correspondence, being for the most part the official correspondence of the President's Office. There is also correspondence with various officials of the U.S. Geological Survey which documents Atwood's Rocky Mountain researches. Several files with various members of the Boston publishing house of Ginn and Company are concerned with the production of various Atwood textbooks. The papers include folders dealing with various geography organizations.
