Published and non-published works of Bruce L. Mouser

Introduction: For the convenience of that person who is searching for hard to find items that I may have written, may have published in an odd place, or something that I delivered at a conference at some point, I am placing copies of all that I have in my files. I also include here items that never reached the publication stage, but those are attached at the end of this index.  

A. Bibliography of books and articles for which I have photocopies of sections that deal with events or circumstances in the Northern Rivers of Sierra Leone.

B. An index to 5x8 note cards that relate to the Northern Rivers of Sierra Leone.

C. Photocopies of notes on 5x8 cards taken in the 1960s and 1970s on documents found in the British National Archives. I rechecked these in the late 1990s and found them to be accurate. See “Note cards” on main index page.

D. Photocopies of notes taken on 5x8 cards in 1979 on documents found in the Sierra Leone Archive.
One group of notes was taken from the Colonial Secretary’s Letter book (SLA/CSLB) and covers the 1820-1862 period. A second group was taken from the Government Interpreter’s Letter book (SLA/GILB) and cover events of 1872 to 1879.

E. Photocopies of notes taken on 5x8 cards from Church Missionary Society Archives. Note: A large section of CA1/E1-E3 is now reproduced in Case of the Reverend Peter Hartwig, Slave Trader or Misunderstood Idealist? Clash of Church Missionary Society/imperial objectives in Sierra Leone, 1804-1815 (Madison: African Studies Publications, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 2003) and The Reverend Peter Hartwig, 1804-1815: A sourcebook of correspondence from the Church Missionary Society Archive (Madison: African Studies Publications, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 2003).
For the first years of the Society’s existence, incoming and outgoing letters were arranged according to dates of sending or of receipt and were bound in large volumes. Correspondence of the Susu Mission are found in CAI/E1, CAI/E2, CAI/E3, CAI/E4, CAI/E5, and CAI/E5A.

F. Books written by Bruce L. Mouser. Only items out of print reproduced here. Check with publisher before paying a high price for a used copy.
