Colonel Martin L. Crimmins Collection Inventory

St. Mary's University Archives


During the last twenty-five years of his career, Crimmins published more than two hundred articles and presented many public lectures on military history, herpetology, anthropology of indigenous peoples, and exploration of prehistoric sites mostly with a focus on the Southwestern US. In support of this writing he collected a large library of books, periodicals and pamphlets, hundreds of historical maps, newspapers, photographs, and documents. Most of the historical materials are in facsimile but some are originals.
