This collection consists of a bound typescript of the book "The American Tory", which is the study of the Loyalists (or “Tories”) of the American Revolution. The author notes that the history of the Tories remains somewhat forgotten as a result of their defeat in the war; however, the author seeks to examine the “depth of their quarrel with their fellow Americans and the totality of their defeat.” This book contains many handwritten editorial notes and marks. The typescript is 216 pages in length, not including a short preface at the beginning and an index at the end.
