Scope and Content

In 2015 the UNI Foundation arranged for Robert James Waller, former Dean of the School of Business, to donate a typescript of his novel, "Bridges of Madison County", to the University of Northern Iowa.  That typescript is housed in the Rod Library Special Collections and University Archives unit.  The typescript, dated July 26, 1990, includes notes likely written by Professor Waller as he made final corrections to his work.

This material is available for research and study.
