Hi friends: I have been inactive for a long time but back on board, so to speak. In the Edward S. Godfrey Papers, Manuscripts Division, Library of Congress, there is supposed to be a typewritten copy of Farrier Winfield S. Harvey's diary, which covers at least the years 1869 and 1870. I have sought it in past research but have only been able to get a portion of the diary. Does anyone have a copy of the entire diary? It covers the area of history I do most of my research, viz., Kansas in the late 1860s, early 1870s. If so, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.

Nobody replied but I did work with another LBHA member outside of this site and a researcher who got me in contact with descendants, but repeated contacts with two of them resulted in no replies. Meanwhile, the manuscript I was working on that referenced this diary is now with Caxton Press and due out in about a month, Indian Raids and Massacres Essays on the Central Plains Indian War. Several chapters deal with Custer, including one chapter on the Kidder Massacre.

Godfrrey's collection, 'Access and Restrictions - The papers of Edward Settle Godfrey are open to research. Researchers are advised to contact the Manuscript Reading Room prior to visiting. Many collections are stored off-site and advance notice is needed to retrieve these items for research use.'
