With a grant from the Regents and funds raised by the Friends, The Bancroft Library purchased, for $550,000, the magnificent collection assembled by Robert B. Honeyman, Jr.--significantly expanding its collecting program to include pictorial materials. In October, 1964, Dr. Joseph A. Baird, Jr. joined the library staff as Curator of Pictorial Western Americana, to oversee the storage of the Honeyman Collection and prepare a catalog, which was published in 1969.
