Dates: 1863-
Identification: MS-818





Introduction

Robert Averill, Dartmouth College Class of 1972, became fascinated with Mount Moosilauke and the environs of this mountain when he was a member of the Dartmouth Outing Club. This fascination has continued with not only avid field activity but also serious collecting of historical materials and an important series of contemporary photographs of current events.

The collection consists of photocopies of historical materials, both printed and in holograph, from the Dartmouth College Library and New Hampshire Historical Society collections; copies of printed brochures and genealogies; and historical and contemporary photographs. The material relates primarily to Mount Moosilauke, with some photographs of Warren, New Hampshire, and the Appalachian Trail in both New Hampshire and Vermont.

The collection is the gift of Robert Averill and is expected to continue to grow.
