HARVARD TRAVELLERS CLUB ARCHIVES
(Box 10-4.06) Club Library & Bookplate.
This is a work in progress.
For a period of time the Club maintained a library, first at the Harvard Club and then at the Institute of Geographical Exploration. It may have gone to the Museum of Science. A few of the books with the bookplate are in the Club's Archives.
A Letter from the Harvard Club regarding the Library.

the Library may have been donated to the Museum of Science.
This is now being researched. May 23, 1962.
