    The main body of the Scott family papers were received by the Mitchell Library in 1925 from the estate of Rose Scott, through her nephew Helenus Hope Scott Wallace. Part of this collection was arranged and bound, with the rest remaining unbound. In 1950 Helenus Hope Scott Wallace presented further Scott family papers to the Library. These papers were added to the unbound papers, with the exception of a volume labelled ‘Autographs’. The unbound papers from the 1925 and 1950 donations were allocated the manuscript number MLMSS 38 and were arranged and described in the “Guide to the Papers of the Scott Family in the Mitchell Library, Sydney. Part 1” Library Council of New South Wales, 1979. The Guide includes an index to correspondence in MLMSS 38, a list of pictorial material that was removed from the collection and located at Pic.Acc.4495, and genealogical tables of the Scott and Rusden families. The bound volumes were given the manuscript call numbers A 2260 – A 2269 (bound in 1943), and A 2271 – A 2284 (bound in 1931). The volume labelled ‘Autographs’ was given the call number A 2270.
