DEC professional papers, 1880-1950 and undated

Identifier: Series 2

Scope and Contents

This series contains Delph E. Carpenter's working papers, separated into five subseries. Four of these represent a major area of his working life (cattle, compacts and rivers, legal, and political) and the fifth contains oversized materials on the same subjects. The materials were either created by Carpenter in the course of his work or were received by him in relation to his work. While the documentation of his cattle business is modest, few papers exist relating to his political career, though some here are significant. Materials related to compact issues and legal cases are more voluminous.


  • Creation: 1880-1950 and undated


Restrictions on Access

All "confidential" markings on correspondence or other materials have been determined to be for administrative purposes, not national security information; therefore, these materials are open for access.
