Henry van Stekelenburg Collection (Dutch Catholic Emigration)
The RSC/RIAS acquired the collection of the late Dutch historian Henk van Stekelenburg (1929-1999). Van Stekelenburg was an expert on Roman Catholic emigration from the Netherlands. The materials donated to the RSC formed the basis of his three books and numerous articles he wrote about this subject. The collection consists of 24 boxes with research notes, interviews, background materials, bibliographic references, genealogical information, immigration records, correspondence, and illustrations about emigration from the southern part of the Netherlands (the province Noord-Brabant) to the United States and Canada in the period 1820-1960.
