2Title:  Document naming Ladislaus vice-governor of the province of Benevent : manuscript, 1398   
 Creator:  LadislausKing of Naples 
 Notes:  Document naming King Ladislaus of Naples vice-governor of the province of Benevent. In the document Ladislaus is called King of Hungary, Jerusalem, Sicily, Dalmatia, Crotia, Bame[?], Serbia, Galatia, Lodomire[?], Comanie[?], Bulgaria, Provence, Forcalquiez & Piémont. Italy[?]. Dated 1398 (line 1); the document was written during the twelfth year of Ladislaus' nominal reign. The incipit is formulaic: In nomine domini nostri ihesu christi amen. Anno a nativitate ... Gothic cursive. The document is witnessed by seven signatures with notarial signets. The document is worn and faded and the writing is very difficult to read in places; it might require an ultraviolet light to read the entire document properly. There is writing on the verso, perhaps another document. This is so faded and stained that it is not decipherable without ultraviolet light. There are several stains on the document, and it has been patched in several places. There are several holes in the parchment that appear to be imperfections in the hide. The document measures approximately 55 x 38 cm. and has an irregular shape that suggests that this particular piece of hide came from the neck and forelegs of the animal. Benevent is probably Benevento in Italy. The multiple titles assigned to Ladislaus are noteworthy; according to Histoire de Provence (Book VII, p. 276), Ladislaus did not claim this many titles until 1407.

 Notes:  This collection is what is known as an autograph collection and Kane spent years, not only collecting autographs of famous people on his own, but also acquiring the collections of other autograph seekers.

The collection includes accounts, letters, photographs, poems, government papers and royal proclamations, signed by, among others, actors and actresses, authors, explorers, kngs, magicians, queens, politicians, scientists, singers, and soldiers. Many of the famous people in this collection are also to be found in other manuscript collections in the Huntington Library. The majority of the material consists of manuscripts, letters and documents written, or signed, by famous people from the 17th-early 20th centuries; some of the material consists of only fragments or signatures, collected for the autograph value only. Among the correspondents are: Lyman Abbott, Zoèe Akins, Henry Mills Alden, Lawrence Alma-Tadema, John Douglas Sutherland Campbell (Duke of Argyll), Charles Babbage, Joanna Baillie, Alice Stone Blackwell, John Bright, Richard Temple Brydges (Duke of Buckingham and Chandos), Josâe Francisco Correia da Serra, Rebecca Harding Davis, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Annie Fields, J.T.

They include correspondence, research notes, and documents, over 30 of which are in Newton's hand. The collection demonstrates the wide range of Newton's activities: his extensive studies of alchemy and theology, his work for the Royal Mint and the Royal Society, as well as his personal records. Highlights include: "A Treatise or Remarks on Solomon's Temple," with commentary and six sketches of plans and architectural details drawn by Newton, "Praxis," considered one of his most important alchemical manuscripts, and an illustrated alchemical text picturing the Philosopher's Stone. Another notable manuscript is "Lib. Chem," Newton's inventory of over 100 alchemical books in his personal library, with shelf marks. The collection also contains correspondence and documents written by Newton's contemporaries. Of particular note is a letter from Gottfried Leibniz to Nicolas Bernoulli written in June 1713, in which Leibniz entreats Bernoulli to help justify his claim to priority over Newton in the discovery of the calculus. Newton's Representation of the gold, and silver coin, 1717 has been separately cataloged as mssHM 76721, but is housed with this collection.

16Title:  Willis M. Hawkins papers, 1949-1998   
 Creator:  Hawkins, Willis M. 
 Notes:  The Willis M. Hawkins Papers, 1920-2009 (80 boxes) document the successful aerospace engineering career of Hawkins at Lockheed, the relationships between industry, military, and government, and the development of airplanes, missile systems, and space vehicles during the second half of the 20th century. Effort was made to maintain the original order in which the collection arrived at The Huntington Library and the arrangement reflects Hawkins' organization of materials largely by subject, project, or organization. The bulk of collection materials date from the 1950s to the early 1990s and consists of correspondence, memoranda, presentation and meeting materials, reports, blueprints, clippings, speeches, writings, and ephemera. The collection is especially rich in correspondence; in addition to Hawkins' incoming and outgoing correspondence is the copied correspondence of other Lockheed executives with whom Hawkins worked closely during his tenure. Hawkins' involvement in consulting and professional organizations was often in conjunction with his role at Lockheed, and researchers should thus be aware that materials are often dispersed through the series. For example, materials related to specific committees are frequently represented in both the Correspondence and Consulting Files Series.

17Title:  Albert R. Hibbs papers, 1884-2009   
 Creator:  Hibbs, Albert R. 
 Notes:  The Albert R. Hibbs Papers, 1884-2009 (80 boxes) document the personal life and career of Hibbs as a manager and scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), the relationships between JPL, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), and the development of the solar system exploration programs. Hibbs' consulting work for television and radio programs, Biosphere 2, and Morgantown Area Rapid Transit System (MARTS) are also documented. Although the collection arrived at The Huntington in disarray, original order of the materials was maintained when possible and the arrangement reflects Hibbs' general organization by correspondent, subject, or format of materials. The collection is divided into ten series: Audio Visual Materials, Consulting Files, Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Notebooks, Personal Files, Photographs and Negatives, Presentations and Speeches, Publications and Writings, Teaching Files, and Oversize. The bulk of collection materials date from 1931 to 1999 and consists of audio and video tapes, clippings, correspondence, memoranda, notes, photographs, publications, speeches, and writings. As the collection is arranged by both subject and format of the materials, researchers should be aware that materials are often dispersed through the series. For example, materials related to specific subjects are frequently represented in the JPL and Notebooks Series; similarly, Hibbs' friendship and collaboration with Roy L. Walford is documented in the Correspondence and Aging Research and Writings subseries of the Personal Series, in the Space Bioshpheres Ventures subseries of the Consulting series, as well as in the Audio Visual Materials Series. Correspondence is also dispersed throughout the series.
