Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


The arrangement of the records at the time of transfer has been retained. Separate groupings exist for undergraduate term papers, files pertaining to graduate students, and records of the summer seminar and summer language program.

Collection History


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.
