SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE
This collection of the papers of Edmund McKinney consists of six items on one reel of microfilm arranged in three series: 1) Letters Sent and Essay, 1847-1848; 2) Iowa, Otoe, Omaha, and Pawnee Manuscripts; and 3) Biography of Elizabeth Stevens Morse, 1916. The two letters and the essay in Series 1 were written by Presbyterian missionary Edmund McKinney. They describe the Iowa, Sac, Omaha, and Otoe Indians with whom he came in contact. The manuscript in Series 2 contains rules of grammar and a dictionary prepared by McKinney. Series 3 contains a biography of Elizabeth Stevens Morse, taken from a letter by Grace Meeker in August of 1916, with corrections supplied by the Kansas State Historical Society. The relationship of the Morse biography to Rev. McKinney is uncertain. This collection is in the possession of the Kansas State Historical Society in Topeka, which microfilmed it and donated a copy to the Nebraska State Historical Society in June of 1984.
