UPDATE FROM THE BURTON HISTORICAL COLLECTION OF THE DETROIT LIBRARY
The Burton Historical Collection (BHC) of the Detroit Public Library is now re-opened and is available to researchers by appointment only.
"The Burton Historical Collection began as the private library of Clarence Monroe Burton, a prominent attorney and Detroit historiographer. Mr. Burton’s original intention was to assemble a collection on the history of Detroit. Realizing that Detroit’s history was inextricably connected to that of Michigan and the Old Northwest, Canada and New France, he assembled a collection that is one of the most important private historical collections in the country."
