Collection summary derived from "Guidebook to Manuscripts", 1969: This manuscript (7 pp.) is a proposal and constitution for the "New Jersey Organization for Helping the Indians." Written during the French and Indian War, it was intended to help bring about improved living conditions for the native New Jersey Indians. Along with the document is a letter (not signed) citing objections to the proposed association.

Background: Staff, interns, and volunteers of the Thomas Gilcrease Library and Archive have contributed to the organization and maintenance of the files since the collection passed to the City of Tulsa in the 1950s. The Gilcrease Foundation acquired these materials before 1964 and is housed in the Helmerich Center for American Research (HCAR). The library currently receives most materials through community donation, board members, artists and the acquisition of manuscript collections.
