Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Alexander Leggat was a Butte, Montana mining engineer, hotel owner, and collector of western Americana. He was born in Owasso, Michigan, on December 22, 1876, to John A. Leggat and his wife, Claribel Ament Leggat. He came to Butte, Montana with his mother in 1880 and attended public schools in Butte, graduating from the Butte High School in 1894. He next attended the college of Montana at Deer Lodge, and also the Michigan School of Mines in Houghton. He worked as a mining engineer in Montana and served in many Butte civic organizations. Leggat purchased a hotel in Butte in the early twentieth century and became active in the Montana Hotel Association in 1923. He began collecting books and manuscripts pertaining to Montana and the West in the 1920s and eventually compiled an impressive private library. Following his death in 1961, his widow began negotiations with Montana State College for the sale of the collection.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Leggat collection consists primarily of what is frequently referred to as "gray literature," ephemeral publications that, for the most part, do not warrant item level description within a library catalog. After the purchase of the Leggat collection by Montana State University in 1966, library personnel cataloged most of the serial runs and individual monographs which, at that time, were considered significant. The remaining boxes of pamphlets, brochures, broadsides, U. S. Congressional Serial Set tear sheets and magazine articles were placed into folders within several filing cabinets. This material was reviewed again in 2012 for any pieces considered significant enough for item level cataloging and, after their removal, sorted into the four series represented here. The material concerns a wide variety of Montana historical topics, especially the history and development of Butte and Helena, state political issues, military topics, the Montana Vigilantes of 1863-64, mining and railroads.

Detailed Description of the CollectionReturn to Top

Series 1:  Pamphlets, brochures, broadsides, 1863-1961Return to Top

Pamphlets, brochures and broadsides dealing with a wide variety of topics in Montana history. Topics particularly well represented are Butte and Helena, Montana, the Northern Pacific, Union Pacific, and Great Northern Railways, and Montana politics and government. Originally part of the books and serials accessioned with the Leggat donation, many of these ephemeral pieces were removed for item level cataloging and placement in the library's catalog. These remaining materials are either duplicates with some marginalia or items considered too marginal to justify the creation of an original catalog record. The materials have been placed in alphabetical order by author, with a shortened title statement and date of publication following.

Series 4:  Reference catalog cards, 1966Return to Top

Original main entry and analytic catalog cards created by the Montana State University library to document the various pieces of the Leggat collection. Included are analytic entries for the magazine articles represented in Series 3 and main entry shelf list cards for the books and pamphlets of the Leggat collection. Many of the titles represented in the shelf list cards have already been entered into the library's holdings and have complete MARC records available online, but some cards representing the "grey literature" of the pamphlets in Series 2 are also represented. Cards representing the pamphlets in Series 1 are generally marked as such. All cards are in alphabetical order by "main entry," (author or title).
