A collection of ephemera of a Lehigh alumnus, Rollin Reuben Keim, concerning his personal interests, his career as a City of Bethlehem businessman and contributions to his Lehigh Class as Class correspondent for Lehigh Alumni Bulletin. Major portion of the collection is data and visual material related to the Hill-to-Hill Bridge, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
A documentation of court history of Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, infamously known as the site of the activities of the Molly Maguires, a secret society primarily of Irish miners who riot against anthracite coalmine owners in the mid-1800s. Although the time frame of this court history was before the real "crime wave" that appeared in the anthracite mine area, it is indicative of the labor unrest prevailing throughout the citizenry in the Pennsylvania coalfields.
