This bibliography attempts complete coverage of manuscript collections on the Cherokee in the Northeastern portion of the U.S.Chicago and Madison east to Philadelphia. Its annotations list most names of people, whether Cherokee or non-Cherokee, mentioned in the annotated documents, and most place names, making a particular attempt to annotate and index the more obscure people and places. The author has given particular attention to compiling a thorough index in order to help researchers to discover quickly which libraries contain materials on their topics. Index entries run five to twenty per document, for a total of 6,257 documents.
