Biographical information taken from Guide to Literary Masters & Their Works, January 2007.
The finding aid for this collection is compiled from individual preliminary lists for each acquisition that were created at or around the time of receipt by the library. The preliminary lists were migrated to comply with current archival descriptive standards and merged into a single file in 2007-2008. As part of the migration, modifications were made to the formatting of individual lists; however, the content of the lists was neither modified nor verified.
As a rule, descriptive information found in the Collection Contents section is drawn in large part from information supplied with the collection and from an initial survey of the contents. Folder titles appearing in the contents list below are often based on those provided by the creator or previous custodian. Titles have not been verified against the contents of the folders in all cases. Otherwise, folder titles are supplied by staff during initial processing. In February 2014, additional work was done on the collection to standardize the housing and description across acquisitions.
Former call numbers: Uncat Za Wolfe, Uncat Za Ms 133, Uncat Za Ms 187, Uncat Za Ms 229, Uncat Za Ms 263, Uncat Za File 293, Uncat Za Ms 313, Uncat Za Ms 411, Uncat Za Ms 543, Uncat Za Ms 555, Uncat Za Ms 569, Uncat Za Ms 606, and Uncat Za Ms 441.
This finding aid may be updated periodically to account for new acquisitions to the collection and/or revisions in arrangement and description.
