Abstract: Manuscript notebooks, 1831-1855 and 1860, of Henri Masson, a Frenchman who taught at antebellum academies in Alabama, Missouri, Tennessee, and Mississippi. The books contain more than 100 sketches or essays (chiefly in French) about many aspects of American manners and institutions–religion, government, slavery, education, customs–especially in contrast with France, and about Masson’s experiences, ideas, and intellectual interests. There are also diary entries, memoranda, business records of school teaching, descriptions of conversations with prominent people, and other notations.
