This collection consists of two microfilmed volumes of pioneer stories of Nebraska, compiled by Mrs. Magee, along with one unfilmed folder of histories of various churches in Lincoln, Nebraska and the surrounding area. The stories were taken from the reminiscences of various people, and relate to life and social customs among the first settlers in Nebraska. The collection is arranged in three Series: 1) Vol. 1, Pioneer stories of Nebraska, 1866-1931; 2) Vol. 2, stories of the early days of Valparaiso and vicinity, 1865-1936; and 3) Church Histories. The volumes were loaned to NSHS for microfilming in June of 1965 through the courtesy of the Nebraska Wesleyan University Library. The original volumes are not in the NSHS collections; only the microfilm copies are available. The unfilmed folder was donated in 2003.
