Elden E. "Josh" Billings Fund

    Ut Prosim

The Elden E. "Josh" Billings Civil War Fund was established in 1996 for the continued acquisition of Civil War books, publications, and manuscripts to support Special Collections. Purchases with these funds include original diaries, correspondence, and ephemera, as well as books, speeches, and pamphlets on slavery, regimental histories/reunions, and southern states in the Civil War.

In addition, Elden E. Billings donated over 4,000 volumes and an extensive collection of Civil War-related memorabilia, personal research, and manuscript items. A finding aid to the Elden E. Billings collection is also available.
