MSSI Collection

The Manuscripts of Idaho (MSSI) collection at BYU-I is one of our most diverse and interesting collections.  MSSI covers everything from journals of prominent Eastern Idaho citizens to World War II artifacts.  These items are kept in a humidity-controlled room at approximately 68* Fahrenheit.  Favorites from the collection include photographs, Mayan pottery, Ruth Barrus’ papers, a Nazi sword, and Thomas E. Rick’s hand-carved cane.
