Lyndon W. Cook research collection on Thomas L. Kane

Lyndon W. Cook research collection on Thomas L. Kane

Dates: 1845-1979

Lyndon W. Cook, a student of LDS Church history and an instructor in history at UVSC, worked for several years gathering materials for what he anticipated would be a complete edition of the papers of Thomas L. Kane (1822-1883). Cook abandoned the project in 1985 and gave his research collection to the BYU Library. Many of the typescripts of Kane's letters and related items were then integrated into the Kane Collection by Dennis Rowley's and the acquisition of a substantially larger Kane Collection required a new look at all the Kane materials at BYU. As the Kane materials were slowly reorganized under the direction of David Whittaker, into Vault MSS 792, the decision was made to pull the Cook typescripts and to create a separate collection for them. Hence this collection.
