This accession consists of the records of William L. Bird, Curator, documenting his curatorial and professional activities in the Division of Political History.

Materials include correspondence, memoranda, and notes; information pertaining to professional societies, conferences, symposiums, and colloquiums; Bird's lecture papers, articles, and book reviews; press releases; newspaper clippings; collection management information; awards; book reviews in regard to Bird's publications; photographs and negatives; brochures; and a drawing.
