Scope and Content Note
The Lawrence G. Miller papers contain correspondence to and from Miller, research,
and notes about knots. This collection has been divided into two series.
Series I. Correspondence contains correspondence to
and from Miller. The correspondence has been arranged alphabetically. Within the
correspondence are sketches, research notes, and some articles that were shared by
or with Miller. Included in this series are three bound volumes of transcribed
Series II. Research contains materials that were
removed from three ring plastic note books. This material consists of notes, news
clippings, articles, and some correspondence; it has been left in its original order
in which it was organized within the binder. It was not clear what order the three
binders were supposed to be kept in, but they have been numbered for easier
reference. This series also contains index cards of knots which have notes and
drawings on them; these have been left in their original order but have been removed
from their original metal box.
