Any student desiring to delve deeply into the Whitman question will find the two books cited here to be the fullest on each side of the case and the footnotes in these books will lead to almost endless materials. As usual, the other books are chosen for the accessibility in many of our Northwestern libraries. Bancroft, Hubert Howe. Works of. Vol. XXIX. (Ore- gon, Vol. I.), pages 54 to 142. 184 to 225, 315 to 348, 639 to 699. The index in Oregon Vol. II. will be helpful for separate items in the field. Eells, Myron. Marcus Whitman. This book of 349 pages was published by the Alice Harriman Company in Seattle in 1909 after the death of the author. It is the fullest account on the pro- Whitman side. There are numerous citations to authorities. Lee, D., and Frost, J. H. Ten Years in Oregon. This is <& source book published in. New York by the authors in 1844. It is not common, but may be found in some of the libraries of the Northwest. Marshall, William I. Acquisition of Oregon and the Long Suppressed Evidence About Marcus Whitman. This work in two rather large volumes (450 and 368 pages) was published by Clarence B.Bagley through the house of Lowman & Hanford Company, Seattle, after the author's death. This work is by far the fullest account of what might be called the anti- Whitman side of the controversy. It is, of course, exhaus- tive and cites to abundant materials. MEANY, Edmond S. History of the State of Washington. For the ground covered by this syllabus consult pages 88-89, 98-99, 1 06- 131. Schafer, Joseph. History of the Pacific N ortriwest - Use the index, but be sure to read pages. 128-129, 145-164, 218-224.
