From Joseph Ralston Hayden papers


Over the past one hundred years or more, a large number of University of Michigan faculty and alumni and other citizens of the state of Michigan have played a decisive role in shaping relations between the United States and the Philippines. The Bentley Historical Library has collected the papers of many of these men and women. This guide updates information published in two previous guides to the library's Philippine-related manuscript collections, and provides links to online finding aids that provide more detailed information about many of the collections. Many of the collections contain visual materials, a selection from which is included in this guide.
