General Collection manuscript miscellany
Scope and Contents
Items in this collection cataloged prior to 2021 were assigned group and item numbers (for example, Grp 115, Item F-1). This system was discontinued in 2021, with previously assigned group and item numbers retained as the folder number.
This list is ongoing, and it is subject to revision as new materials are acquired and, on occasion, as groups of manuscripts are removed and cataloged separately as artificial collections. When materials are removed and reclassified, a cross reference to the new call number is placed in the list. In addition to newly received items which have been described using current cataloging standards, this finding aid contains previously cataloged material. Descriptions for the latter items have been transcribed from card sets in the Manuscript Catalog; these entries are identified by "rec," followed by the year of the conversion, e.g., (rec/97).
