Yes, but since we have many papers related to the James family, it's best if you narrow your search.

You can browse a list of finding aids associated with the James family by going to OASIS and choosing the Browse Finding Aids tab. Then choose Limit by repository = Houghton Library, enter “James” in the Jump to box (without the quotation marks), and click GO. You will then see a list of all the finding aids that have the James family or a member as a central figure: “James family”, “James, Henry”, and “James, William”, for example.

You should also use the Search function in OASIS as many other Houghton collections contain James material. If you were searching for Henry James material, you would search for “James, Henry” (be sure to use the quotation marks) in Personal Names, Limit by repository = Houghton Library, and click GO.

Transcriptions of some early letters to Henry James held at Houghton are available through the Early Letters by Various Correspondents to Henry James web site.
