Descriptive elements include the type and size of the collection's manuscript material, its period of coverage, and its shelf mark or classification number where possible. The volume concludes with a proper name index. In addition to British India's famous administrators and military leaders, ranging from Lord Clive and Mountbatten to General Coote and Field Marshal Slim, materials representing the various missionary groups, business and industry, the medical profession, and literary figures are included. An indispensible source for researchers of India as well as Afghanistan, the Persian Gulf, Tibet, and Burma.
