This accession contains materials related to all of the documents published in volume 11 of "The Papers of Joseph Henry" as well as most of those considered for publication. For each document, an envelope was created to keep all materials related to that document. The envelopes held facsimiles of original documents and related correspondence along with transcriptions, research notes, editorial notes and drafts, and photocopies of articles or other items used for research. Facsimiles, transcriptions of published documents, and research photocopies from widely available sources have been discarded. Research materials related to Joseph Henry or the Smithsonian Institution have been transferred to the office of the Smithsonian Institution Archives' Institutional History Division or to the Smithsonian Institution Archives' research file. The materials in this accession are arranged chronologically by the date of the original document.
