The Letters of John Muir: Themed Collection

The images in this topic are scanned copies of correspondence to and from the naturalist John Muir (1838-1914). They show how Muir dedicated his life to revealing the complexity and beauty of the natural world as a scientist, writer, and activist. These are just a few of the more than 6,000 letters in the collection—all of which are fully searchable on this website.
