HISTORICAL SKETCH

Orin Grant Libby was born June 9, 1864, on a farm near Hammond, Wisconsin. He attended the River Falls State Normal School and graduated in 1886. He received his undergraduate degree in 1892, his master's degree in 1893, and his Ph.D. in 1895, all from the University of Wisconsin. Libby was an instructor in the Department of History at the University of Wisconsin - Madison from 1895 to 1902.  He moved to Grand Forks, North Dakota in 1902, became head of the History Department at the University of North Dakota, and retired in 1945.

Dr. Libby helped reorganize the State Historical Society of North Dakota and served as its secretary from 1905 to 1945. He was president of the North Dakota Audubon Society from 1903 to 1909, president of the State Library Commission in 1909, and president of the Mississippi Valley Historical Association in 1910. He was a member of the Lions Club, the Franklin Club, Masons, Phi Beta Kappa, Alpha Pi Zeta, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

Dr. Libby married Eva Gertrude Cory in September 12, 1900. They had two children, Charles and Margeret. Orin Libby died at his home in Grand Forks, North Dakota on March 29, 1952.

The Orin G. Libby Manuscript Collection was established in 1952 at the University of North Dakota and is named in his honor. The Reading Room at the State Historical Society of North Dakota was similarly named in memory of Dr. Libby in 1982.

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The Orin Grant Libby Collection dates from 1902 to 1943 and occupies twenty and three-fourths cubic feet. The Collection is divided into four series reflecting Libby's professional and personal activities: Secretary of the State Historical Society of North Dakota, Grand Historian of the North Dakota Masonic Grand Lodge, Professor of History at the University of North Dakota, and copies of articles published by Libby.

Records relating to Libby's tenure as Secretary of the State Historical Society of North Dakota consist of correspondence, research materials, and miscellaneous manuscripts. The correspondence includes outgoing letters, in-coming letters, and subject files, and measures nearly 12 cubic feet.  The outgoing letters date from 1905 to 1943 and are arranged chronologically. The incoming letters date from 1902 to 1943 and are arranged alphabetically. The subject files, dating 1904 to 1941, consist of correspondence concerning administration of the agency, historical research and investigations, curatorial applications, and agency projects.

The research materials occupy approximately 8 cubic feet and consist of originals and copies of materials of historical value, including biographies; census and enumeration records; Civil War and World War I letters; diaries and journals; newspaper clippings; reports; documents; historical sketches; and notebooks.  The research materials provide information on cities and counties, churches, fur trade, Indians, military expeditions and forts, and transportation.  Libby's notebooks, measuring ½ cubic foot, detail travel, activities, and accounts while conducting agency business.  Prior to processing, the research materials were arranged in groups reflecting either similar subject matter or format. This arrangement has been maintained in most instances. 

The miscellaneous manuscripts measure ½ cubic foot and consist of manuscripts, letters, reports, accounts of Indian legends, account books, maps, and reminiscences. They are arranged alphabetically according to the contributor's last name.

The series relating to Libby's position as Grand Historian of the North Dakota Masonic Grand Lodge dates from 1926 to 1942, occupies ½ cubic foot, and consists of correspondence, a notebook, manuscripts, notes, and documents relating to Masonic history in North Dakota.

Records relating to Libby's activities as Professor of History at the University of North Dakota date from 1908 to 1919 and consist of correspondence between Libby and other University faculty members regarding University matters.

The last series consists of copies of Libby's writings from various publications.

Researchers should note that a collection of Orin Libby papers are available in the Orin G. Libby Manuscript Collection at the University of North Dakota.  An inventory to the Libby papers at the University of North Dakota is available on request in the Orin G. Libby Memorial Reading Room at the State Historical Society of North Dakota.
