John C. Riker Papers
Description: The Riker Papers consist primarily of business papers with but a small percentage of personal papers. They measure approximately a little less than two cubic feet consisting of about 1300 items, all loose documents with but three or four volumes. These are dated principally in the l840s and 1850s with but some minor exceptions. No one group or series seems to appear to be totally complete. Though efforts were made to group documents into their proper series, this was not always possible, and it is quite likely that a few documents may not be placed in their proper category. There is also a Miscellaneous Series for those relatively few documents which do not appear to belong In specifically named series.
