Opening Ceremonies, 1992-1996
Collection Description & Creator Information
Consists of the records of the office in charge of organizing all 250th anniversary celebration activities, as well as examples of the many publications, event programs, invitations, posters, audio and visual recordings, and commemorative artifacts created in conjunction with those activities.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
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.
