The finding aid for this collection is partially compiled from individual catalog cards that were created at or around the time of receipt by the library. Information from the catalog cards was repurposed in the finding aid in accordance with current archival descriptive standards. Some catalog cards, copies of which are filed with the collection, include more detailed descriptions of individual items and/or provenance notes. Descriptions for items not represented by catalog cards were derived from accession records, folder labels, or other available descriptive material.
This finding aid may be updated periodically to account for new acquisitions to the collection and/or revisions in arrangement and description.
