Scope and arrangement
The collection contains correspondence and reports (most are in Spanish) during Lamb's tenure with the Panama police, some personal papers, a draft of an autobiography concerning his work in Panama, and other writings. One-half of the collection consists of clippings about Panama. In addition, there are papers and correspondence (1923-1927) of Jacqueline Lewis MacNish (circa 1879-?) regarding her divorce from Ronald MacNish (? -1925), a citizen of Panama.
