Waring Historical Library Finding Aids - Manuscripts Collections

The Waring Historical Library's growing list of finding aids describe the Library's archival and manuscript collections. The descriptive guides provide context and background, and in many cases, inventoried lists of collection contents.

The finding aids for the manuscripts collections are organized alphabetically. Please note the Physical Location codes featured in the tables for the Waring Historical Library (WHL) and the MUSC University Archives (UA). Links to catalog records and digitized collections that are accessible in MEDICA are included where applicable. For assistance or to schedule a reference appointment with the Waring's staff, Ask An Archivist.
