Subseries 4C, Collections and Divisions, 1856-2016

138 boxes 1 folder
SOME ONLINE CONTENT
The Collections and Divisions subseries consists of records pertaining to several of the subordinate divisions which comprise the Department of Collections. Included are the Cotsen Children's Library, the Graphic Arts Collection, the Parrish Collection, the Scheide Library, and the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library. The records consist primarily of correspondence and other materials related to these collections/division. Several of these RBSC subdivisions were borne of private collections, and as such this subseries contains some correspondence and other material pertaining to the figures associated with them. This is particularly true in the case of the Graphic Arts Collection (Elmer Adler) and the Scheide Library (John H. Scheide).

Princeton University. Undergraduate Admission Office.
The Admission Office has determined who should be allowed to enroll as undergraduates at Princeton University since 1922. The actual composition and the desired composition of each class have been contentious campus issues since the introduction of selective admission. The debates over the value of recruiting and admitting alumni sons, war veterans, athletes, disadvantaged students (especially racial minorities), and women are reflected in the records of the Admission Office. This collection includes a number of reports and minutes, some of which are restricted, news clippings and releases about Princeton admission, historical materials, and a series of Admission Office publications.

Association on American Indian Affairs
The Records of the Association on American Indian Affairs document the corporate life of an influential and resilient player in the history of twentieth-century Native American advocacy. From its formation by non-Indians in New York in 1922 to its re-establishment in South Dakota in 1995 under a wholly Indian administration, the AAIA has defended the rights and promoted the welfare of Native Americans and, in this process, has shaped the views of their fellow citizens. The AAIA has waged innumerable battles over the years, touching on the material and spiritual well-being of Indians in every state of the Union: from the right of Native Americans to control their resources to their right to worship freely; from their right to federal trusteeship to their right to self-determination. The evolving nature of this struggle, in terms of conception and execution; the environment in which it was waged, both within and without the AAIA; the parade of men and women who figured in it; and the relationships among them can all be found in the abundant and insightful records which constitute these Records. The correspondence, minutes, reports, articles, clippings, and other documents in the collection, augmented by photographic and audiovisual material, represent a window not only on the AAIA but on the entities and personalities with which it interacted. While its vision has co-existed with others, and while it has been far from alone in its contribution to Indian life, no consideration of twentieth-century Native American affairs can disregard its arduous and, for the most part, fruitful work.
