Arranged chronologically by event and then alphabetically by topic.
- Custodial History:
It appears that Colonel Arthur E. Fox '13 maintained the files of the Bicentennial Celebration and gave the records to Firestone Library at some point before his departure in 1956. Once the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library was constructed in 1976, all University Archives collections located at Firestone Library were transferred to the Mudd Manuscript Library.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
Appraisal has been conducted in accordance with Mudd Manuscript Library guidelines.
