Collection History

Processing Notes

In cases where loose materials were placed in folders or degraded folders were replaced, an attempt has been made to assess access restrictions and restriction recommendations have been written in pencil on the front of the folder by Adrienne Pruitt, the Collections Management Archivist. Many correspondence folders are closed because they contain recommendation letters for students and colleagues.
