Subseries 5B: Correspondence, 1972-1987
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
Subseries 5B: Correspondence, 1972-1987, consists of correspondence between the president and various outside individuals. This subseries actually contains two runs of alphabetized correspondence; the content of the two is difficult to differentiate, but the first run includes requests of Bowen to participate in various conferences and to contribute to various publications. The original folders of the second run were marked "personal," although the content of the folders seems no more personal than much of Bowen's official correspondence. The folders from the two runs (but not their contents) have been interfiled.
No arrangement action taken or arrangement information not recorded at the time of processing.
No appraisal information is available.
