The classes taught at other universities were placed first, followed by the courses taught at Idaho. Courses with numbers were placed in numerical ordered, followed by an alphabetical arrangement by subject of material not identified by course number. The second part of this first series contains typescripts and reprints of articles by Winkler which are arranged alphabetically by title, typescripts and mimeographed copies of the syllabuses for several courses, and correspondence and memos related to his teaching career.The second series concerns his education, both undergraduate and graduate, and contains class notes, outlines, and papers for courses he took, plus grades and correspondence from Northwestern University.The final series of Personal material contains articles about Winkler, and a variety of newspaper and magazine articles on various events of historical significance. Also included are correspondence, maps, military discharge papers, some research notes, his M.A. thesis and Ph.D. dissertation, two scrapbooks of newspaper clippings and two boxes of note cards.Duplicate material was removed from the collection, published items were sent to subject librarians for review, and material in from three ring binders was placed file folders.
