OTTO L. HEIN PAPERS

The Hein Papers include correspondence and photographs documenting the career of this Indian fighter, military attache at European courts, and commandant at West Point (1897-1901), the author of "Memories of Long Ago" (1925), an autobiography as valuable for its recall of choice rumor and gossip as for its recital of events. Included in the collection are a controversial account of Custer's actions at the Little Big Horn, written by an officer on the scene shortly before and after the battle, as well as letters from such notables as Theodore Roosevelt, Douglas MacArthur, and officer-author Charles S. King.

Gift of Herbert R. Hein, Jr.
