After receipt, Beinecke Library staff reviewed the housing of the collection and made adjustments as necessary to meet preservation and collection management requirements. An archivist made a rough sort of the boxes into broader series, but made few changes to the folder-level arrangement of the archive, except where necessary for proper housing or to separate audiovisual and computer media per the library’s preservation best practices.
Beinecke Library staff wrote the collection- and series-level description. Almost all description at the file and item level were written by Wayne Koestenbaum or his assistants, with minimal edits made by library staff.
This finding aid may be updated periodically to account for new acquisitions to the collection or revisions in arrangement and description.
