Charter Day, 1995-1996
Collection Description & Creator Information
Series 1: Office of Princeton's 250th Anniversary Records, 1993-1997 remains in its original order. The records are organized in four sets of files: accounting, correspondence, service and community, and subject files. The accounting files are arranged by account number, the correspondence files are arranged chronologically, and the service and coomunity files are arranged alphabetically by subject. The subject files are subdivided into five color-coded sets: academic and campaign, administrative, alumni council, celebratory events, and historical events. The files within each of these sets are arranged alphabetically by subject. A cache of material that was unfiled when received in the archives has been added to the end of the series but has not been otherwise arranged.
Appraisal has been conducted in accordance with Mudd Library guidelines. Duplicate publications, printed materials, artifacts, and recordings have been deaccessioned. Phone message books from the Office of Princeton's 250th Anniversary, sales material for vendors interested in doing business with the office, and a very small amount of materials unrelated to Princeton have also been deaccessioned. Non-duplicative Princeton-related materials predating the 250th anniversary celebration have been transferred to the Princeton Memorabilia Collection, the Princeton Artwork Collection, the Audiovisual Collection and the Historic Photograph Collection. Records from a conference held by the Department of History in May 1996, From Redemption to Reaganism: American Conservatism 1865-1980, have been transferred to the Department of History Records. A detailed separation record is available.
