Processing Information

Collection processed by Jeffrey Baumiller, Nava Cohen, and Whitney Broadaway and finding aid prepared by Whitney Broadaway in 2008. Scrapbooks were sorted chronologically. Any loose materials were put into folders and organized in a separate box. In 2010-2011 the scrapbooks were dismantled and the photos removed from the acidic pages and placed in plastic sleeving for their protection. The finding aid was updated for consistency among all collections by Mary Rubin in 2012. The finding aid was placed into Archon, with adjustments made for Archon and resulting in edition 2, by Mary Rubin in 2015. The acquisition method field and the subjects were updated by Kryslynn Collazo in 2018, resulting in edition 3.
