The collection consists of a 67-page typescript of Meyer’s autobiographical “Sweet Success,” written in 1978 shortly after his fortieth birthday. After briefly discussing his childhood, the manuscript focuses on Meyer’s experiences in law school, his legal career, and his routine personal and professional practices. Meyers includes tips on successful professional conduct, personal grooming and maintaining a neat work environment, managing a daily schedule, and staying physically fit.
The collection consists of "The autobiography of a civil engineer by John Cyprian Stevens, 1876-1960" written by the University of Nebraska alumnus in 1959-1960. The autobiography spans from his childhood memories to his military service, college days at UNL, his career as an engineer, and much in between.
Materials in the collection include an incomplete set of annual bulletins from 1914 to 1931, debate study materials, photographs, and newspaper clippings. Study materials compiled by members of the UNL Intercollegiate Debate Seminary for the annual statewide debate championship were published by the UNL Department of Extension. The study materials evolve from simple bibliographies of suggested reading materials to comprehensive, separately published handbooks.
The materials consist of Robert Manley's correspondence related primarily to the history of the University of Nebraska and its faculty and alumni.
