The following manuscript material appears in the Bishop Collection. The initial entries are for poems and other short writings by Thomas Bird Mosher, many of which were written before he became a publisher in 1891. “In Biddeford Town, and Otherwhere” and “Old Plays” are substantially longer manuscripts. A number of letters from Mosher to various correspondents are represented, as are letters to Mosher or about Mosher. The letters of condolence were sent to the publisher’s office following his death on August 31, 1923.
The typescript of “That Man Mosher,” covering Mosher’s early years prior to publishing, is being prepared for publication in the not too distant future and correspondence pertaining to the original writing of this work is listed after the typescript entry. The last listing is a single entry for all documents from the ship Nor’wester and the DeWitt Clinton, ships on which Mosher sailed around the world with his father and the rest of his family.
