Thomas B. Catron Papers
Scope and Content
All the Catron land grant files are available online or on microfilm. They contain materials of potential value to researchers from an enormously broad range of disciplines and interests, in addition to land grantees and legal scholars. Prospective users of the collection include, but are not limited to, genealogists, geographers, historians, anthropologists, and researchers interested in water issues. While principally addressing matters related to New Mexico, broader themes and patterns relevant to other times and placed can also be discerned in this rich and extensive collection.
