The William L. Finley Papers document the wildlife conservation work of Finley and his wife Irene, and the photography work of Herman T. Bohlman, who worked with Finley in the first decade of the 20th century. Finley was a photographer, filmmaker, and author who wrote and lectured extensively on wildlife conservation issues. The collection includes published and unpublished manuscripts, lecture and field notes, reports, correspondence, photographs and motion picture films. The majority of the Finley Papers are being digitized at this time. Portions of the collection will be unavailable for research during the digitization process. Researchers are advised to contact the Special Collections and Archives Center in advance to confirm that desired materials are available.
