Biographical/Historical note

Carl Parcher Russell, historian, ecologist, and administator, was an officer for the National Park Service for 34 years, from 1923 until his retirement in 1957. He was dedicated to the study of the frontier. His concern for the minute, everyday facets of frontier life was expanded and intensified with a passion to such depths that during these years, and afterwards to his death in 1967, he was regarded by his peers as the authority in his fields of specialization: the fur trade, and documentation for historical interpretation of frontier and pioneer life for the National Park Service and other agencies.

Dr. Russell was devoted to the development and stimulation of interest in and encouragement of a more complete understanding of life on the western frontier from exploration through early national expansion. This collection, the product of his scholorship and technical knowledge, may now be drawn upon by scholars for research and interpretation of this significant and romantic period in Western United States history.

In the ten years remaining after his retirement, Russell gave most of his time and energy to pursuit of knowledge in his fields of interest and he was active as a published author, lecturer, and planner and consultant for historical museums and facilities. His Firearms, Traps and Tools of the Mountain Men, published posthumously by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., in 1967, is a capstone to his life's work. Unfortunately, this title is but the second of an incomplete trilogy; in the collection are hundreds of items he was unable to exploit in his plan to write more concerning the methods and details in the lives of the explorers, trappers, traders, frontiersmen, soldiers, and pioneer migrants.

Scope and Contents note

The Carl Parcher Russell papers include personal, professional, and office correspondence that pertain to his scholarly interests. The bulk of the collection is his assembled western frontier materials for the period 1804-1843. All are the working papers of an acclaimed scholar in the fields of western fur trade, firearms, frontier artifacts, and frontiersmen.

Public relations were continually a part of Russell's employment in the National Park Service. The preparation of publishable essays and presentation of public lectures were always an important part of his life. These activities required work in many libraries and museums all over the North American continent and in Europe.

Dr. Russell's consuming interest was the material and procedures of the trappers and early traders. His field notes and clever sketches alone, often based on elusive diaries and manuscripts, rare books, and period merchandise catalogs (firearms, traps, tools, etc.) or concerning historic three-dimensional objects, fill 45 loose-leaf notebooks. His research supported numerous published essays and his three monographs: One Hundred Years in Yosemite;  Guns on the Early Frontiers; and  Firearms, Traps, and Tools of the Mountain Men. At the time of his death he had collected and organized illustrations and outlined chapters for an additional monograph:  Camps, Camp Life and Procedures of the Mountain Men.

Dr. Russell's study of the fur trade and the mountain men was indispensable in his assignments in the National Park Service. He used his research for technical reports, lectures, radio scripts, and planning exhibits, illustrations, and interpretative information and programs for historical museums. The collection reflects Russell's involvement in conservation controversies, park managment, National Park Service training programs, and the history of the National Park Service and its personnel.

A separate index, published in Carl Parcher Russell: an indexed register of his scholarly and professional papers, 1920-1967, in the Washington State University Library (Pullman: Washington State University Library, 1970), provides more detailed information about the collection contents.

Arrangement note

The western overland fur trade materials are separated from those pertaining to Russell's other scholarly activities in the National Park Service. This division is the basis for the arrangement of the collection in two series: 1. Fur Trade and Frontier and 2. National Park Service. Examination of the following outline will provide an understanding of the undisturbed subject arrangement used by Russell. The term "general" designates materials either not agreeing specifically with the subjects or that include more than one topic. Duplicates are often placed in two or more locations, to complete or complement other materials.

Note about box numbers: many box numbers in this collection were changed in 2012 during a major project to consolidate box contents as a preservation measure. The sequence of materials was not altered, and folder numbers were not changed.
