Conditions Governing Access note

This collection is open and available for research use.

Immediate Source of Acquisition note

The Washington State University Libraries purchased Paul Kies' autograph collection in 1971. At that time, it was one of the better private autograph collections in the United States. Kies obtained most items through dealers, concentrating in those areas related to his special interests: literature, history, and the arts. He used this collection for teaching, exhibits, and scholarly articles.

Processing Information note

The collection was processed shortly after it was received in the early 1970s, and Danielle Anthony later enhanced the descriptive information for the "Autograph Letters" series in conjunction with a 2006 preservation project.
