Identifier: Series IX.

Scope and Contents

Includes 84 maps collected by Ward and used as primary research materials for his military histories and fiction. Six of the maps are hand-drawn by Ward and trace the movements of his fictional characters in the Jonathan Drew novels. 27 of the maps are original proofs of the reduced maps in the War of the Revolution. The Ward maps are accompanied by a map index which was compiled by librarian William D. Lewis in 1947. This original index (available in print in Special Collections) has been retained as an appendix to this finding aid, but annotations have been added to accurately reflect the current contents of the map collection, and to supply location information.

Separated Materials

The Ward maps are housed in two oversize boxes (Boxes 34 and 35) and a map drawer, as indicated in the index.
