Victor Boehl (1901-1965) worked as a logger in Oregon and California, and then as a dairy farmer in southern Oregon. The collection (1938-1960) contains reports and correspondence on water resources and reclamation in the Rogue River basin, Oregon, and issues of the The Creamery Cooperator, published by the Rogue Valley Dairy Cooperative Association, of Grants Pass, Oregon.
J.M. Sutton enquired, gathered information, and wrote an account of Rogue River Indian War of 1855; it is only known that he wrote the account, not that he participated in the war. The collection (1863) contains Sutton's account of the war, and a letter from Sutton, addressed to "Sir," explaining that he had "gleaned" his account from "enquires made."
