Sherman Library Archives

Archival Collections by Collection Number

The archives of the William P. Sherman Library contain the official records of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation (LCTHF) and many of its Officers and Chapters—from its early work to see a Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail established, through the national Lewis and Clark Bicentennial, and on to present-day activities. We maintain the personal research papers of several Lewis and Clark scholars, and of entities created to commemorate the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial 2003–2006.

These papers are non-circulating, and may be reviewed on-site by appointment Monday through Friday at the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Interpretive Center in Great Falls, Montana. Please call 406-454-1234 to make arrangements. At this time, not all collections have been fully processed, but remain available for research use.
