Collection 2245 - Merrill G. Burlingame Papers, 1880-1990

Creator: Burlingame, Merrill G. (Merrill Gildea), 1901-

Provenance Note: Research files, personal papers, photographs, microfilm and audiotapes created or collected by Merrill G. Burlingame were donated to Special Collections in 1991 and 1994 by Dr. Burlingame. Letters originally assigned collection number 495 were added on October 18, 2011. Documents formerly assigned collection numbers 508, 514, and 523 were added in March 2012. Document formerly assigned collection number 780 were added in October 2012. Document formerly assigned collection number 1004 was added in February 2013. Document formerly assigned collection number 1012 was added in May 2013. Audiotape formerly assigned collection number 1255 was added in October 2013

Historical Note: Merrill G. Burlingame was born in Boone, Iowa on March 13, 1901, the son of Nathan and Teresa Gildea Burlingame. He attended local schools prior to receiving his doctorate at the University of Iowa in 1936. In 1929 he joined the faculty of Montana State College (now Montana State University) and became chair of the history department in 1935. Burlingame's research interests were primarily concerned with Montana and the frontier west. His books include: The Montana Frontier, (1942); A History of Montana (with K. Ross Toole, 1956); A History of Montana State University (1968); John M. Bozeman, Montana Trailmaker (1971). Burlingame also contributed articles to Mississippi Valley Historical Review, Pacific Northwest Quarterly, and Montana: The Magazine of Western History. Along with Dr. Caroline McGill, Burlingame helped establish the Museum of the Rockies and was active in the Montana Historical Society, the Montana Institute of the Arts, the American Historical Society, the Christian Church, and the masonic fraternity. He married Virginia Struble in 1936 and the couple had one son, Ray. Merrill Burlingame died in Bozeman, Montana on November 14, 1994.

Content Description Note: Primarily research files, the Burlingame papers reflect his lifelong interests in the history of Montana and the American West. The files have been arranged in 14 series based on subject or format. Subjects particularly heavily represented are: the history of Bozeman and Gallatin County, Montana and associated individuals; the history of Montana State University and associated individuals; the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ); Captain Gustavus C. Doane, Second U.S. Cavalry; Montana Native Americans. Series based on format are clippings, photographs, microfilm, maps, and audiotape, all of which contain material represented in the subject series. There is also a small group of personal papers containing familial correspondence and genealogical information on the Burlingame family. Original documents created or collected by the William W. Alderson family, Gustavus C. Doane, and Harriette Cushman are also part of the Burlingame papers.

Original and photocopied correspondence, research notes, literary manuscripts, photographs, microfilm, and audiotapes created or collected by Merrill Burlingame were originally maintained by him in several four-drawer filing cabinets during the lengthy course of his career. The subject headings Burlingame assigned to the various folders were not consistent, and much repetition in these headings occurred over the years as he added to his collection. This duplication, along with Burlingame's practice of producing multiple carbon copies of his letters and notes, resulted in a great deal of redundancy in his filing system. The present arrangement represents a compromise between preserving Burlingame's original arrangement and efficiency in retrieval for researchers. Researchers should be cautioned, however, of the need to check the inventories of more than one series for pertinent material due to the difficulty in properly classifying the folder subject headings within any particular group. An asterisk (*) following a folder title indicates that material (either photographs or oversize documents) has been removed for storage elsewhere in the collection.

RESTRICTIONS: Subject file pertaining to Ray Burlingame in Series 10 has been closed for research until 2070. Permission to use any of the material in Series 13, Microfilm, must be secured from the institutions holding the original documents. No photocopies of the Doane biography drafts in Series 3, Montana and the Pioneer West, without permisson from the Dean of Library.

Series 4: General correspondences

Letters written to or by Merrill Burlingame on a wide variety of research topics and matters of personal interest. Unlike correspondence found in the other series, these letters were maintained by Burlingame as a separate file regardless of their subject content. As a result much of the information contained within the letters pertains to subject files listed elsewhere. Most files are quite scant, containing few reference queries or brief replies from Burlingame. An important exception are the letters of W. J. "Duke" Ellington, an employee of the U. S. Bureau of Indian Affairs and administrator at the Rocky Boy reservation in the 1940s. The folders have been alphabetically arranged by the title Burlingame assigned them.
