The Peder L. Phillips Collection, available at the Center for Western studies, is primarily comprised of a 31-volume diary written by Peder L. Phillips. The entries begin February 17, 1913, and end November 13, 1989. Diary entries contain accounts of Peder's farm, work, military experience, and daily life. Also included in this collection are a series of documents: a sketch book, personal correspondence (some of which is written in Norwegian), photographs, newspaper clippings, legal and business papers. Note: received with the diary were several volumes of military history; these were placed in the Mikkelsen Library.
