Pilgrim Lake, 1968-1977


Scope and Content Note

In 1969, K.O. Emery and Dr. Redfield reported on a survey of Pilgrim Lake (Provincetown, MA) that they conducted for the Cape Cod National Sea Shore. This report led to further articles and another manuscript published in 1975. Every draft of this later manuscript was kept, contrary to usual archival weeding practices, because each draft is dated, many drafts have documenting correspondence, and these drafts are an extraordinary example showing the creation of a manuscript over the course of many years.
