American Schools of Oriental Research, 1959-1961
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Administrative series has been arranged into three groupings by form, correspondence, conference materials, and subject files. Correspondence appears first and is arranged chronologically with the exception of the correspondence of Philip K. Hitti, which is filed separately. Records pertaining to conferences are grouped together by conference. Subject files are arranged alphabetically with general files on miscellaneous topics appearing at the beginning of the run.
The Department of Oriental Studies dissolved in 1969, therefore no further accruals of records are anticipated. However, its successor, the Department of Near Eastern Studies may transfer additional materials in the future.
Appraisal has been conducted in accordance with Mudd Library guidelines. In processing this collection many duplicate copies of undistributed conference programs, as well as two editions of the Princeton University Alumni catalogue were removed and discarded.
