History of the Collection
The majority of the material in this collection was gathered and maintained by Doris Merrill Magowan (1914-2001), with additional compilation by other family members. The collection was gifted to the Amherst College Archives and Special Collections in 2004 by Mark, Merrill, Peter and Robin Magowan. A small amount of James I. Merrill material donated by him and others that was previously filed separately has been integrated into this collection.
