Subseries R, Scrapbooks, 1861-1896, provide comprehensive coverage of specific projects and accomplishment of his professional life including construction of the Washington Monument, the State War and Navy Building, and the Library of Congress. Some of the books are thematic, while others mingle various projects. Family and other personal clippings are interspersed throughout the series. Of particular interest are clippings on General Silas Casey's activities in the Civil War, articles about the death of Lt. Edward Wanton Casey and paintings of him by the artist Frederick Remington, a memoir and obituary for Casey's father-in-law, Robert Walter Weir, and an appreciation and obituary for Bernard Richardson Green, TLC's assistant who took over the construction of the Library of Congress. The scrapbooks of Edward Pearce Casey, described in section G, Volume 1 of the Casey Papers binder contain some overlapping materials, particularly in relationship to the Library of Congress.
