What is a Primary Source? (from University of Minnesota Libraries)
  Primary sources are original records created at the time historical events occurred or well after
  events in the form of memoirs and oral histories. Primary sources include manuscripts, diaries,
  letters, rare books, historical photographs, first-hand accounts or documentary sources on a subject,
  person, event or issue. These sources serve as the raw material to interpret the past, and when they
  are used along with previous interpretations by historians, they provide the resources necessary
  for historical research.
