Scope and content

The Research and Publication records comprise the largest series in the L.H. Thomas fonds. While primarily textual in format, the series also contains maps, photographs, and imprint items. The photographs and maps are stored separately for reasons of conservation, but are described within the sub-series they relate to L.H. Thomas maintained an extensive set of clipping files which he used as a resource for teaching and writing. The sheer volume of newspaper clippings in these files meant they could not be photocopied at this time, so the acidity level in the files is high. Where possible, the clippings were placed in Mylar to protect the documents surrounding them. Generally, the records are in good physical shape. The Research and Publication files were described in one series because of their inter-relatedness. The research files would have also been important to L.H. Thomas' teaching, as he taught courses in the same areas he researched and wrote about. Only those files, however, that were clearly titled 'lecture note' material were described in the teaching sub-series (2-2). The remainders of the source files are described as part of series 3. Sub-series within the Research and Publication records include L.H. Thomas; Books; Booklets; Volumes; Reviews; Correspondence with Publishers; General Research notes; Source Material; and Talks and Addresses. The series provides a good overview of L.H. Thomas' research methods, and steps necessary to seeing a paper or book published.

The series title is based on the contents of records.
