While the series arrangement reflects, as far as possible, an intellectual arrangement of material, the bulk of the material is oversize and is therefore physically arranged by size. As a result, the box numbers are not contiguous and material within each series overlaps with and/or relates to material found in other series. In order to locate all relevant material within this collection, researchers will need to consult each series described in the Collection Contents section.

Harvey Weiss (1922-2007)
Weiss was a noted sculptor, and his sculptures form part of many private and public collections. He was also a professor of sculpture at Adelphi University.
This collection received a basic level of processing, including rehousing and minimal organization, in 2008. A new call number was assigned in 2013. Information included in the Description of Papers note and Collection Contents section is drawn 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.
This finding aid may be updated periodically to account for new acquisitions to the collection and/or revisions in arrangement and description.
