Two New Digital Collections From Special Collections

There are two new additions to the library's digital collections page at the link below.


The Lyman Wilbur Afghanistan Collection contains color slides taken by Wilbur in 1957 and 1958. Wilbur, vice president of the Boise company Morrison-Knudsen, took the slides during his visits to Afghanistan to inspect M-K's dam and irrigation construction projects in that country.

The Peter Beemer Manuscript Collection contains handwritten musical scores recorded in the 1860s by Beemer in the mining camp of Warren, Idaho, of songs and dance music performed by his band and others. Videos of modern performances of several of the pieces are also included in the digital collection.
