- Custodial History
According to Joseph Felcone, the seller, papers in Series 6 (AR.2021.009) all came from the papers of Edna Netter, who was a New Jersey antiques dealer active from the 1920s to the 1950s. Felcone writes that Netter acquired all the Maclean material from an estate auction in Princeton. Edna Netter's business partner, Virginia Smith, was also Netter's exeutrix. Virginia Smith's descendants, Denise Smith and Amy Smith, sold Maclean papers in this collection to Princeton University through Joseph J. Felcone.
Other papers in this collection derived from the Edna Netter estate, as well.
Appraisal has been conducted in accordance with Mudd Library guidelines. Two locks of George Maclean's hair were separated during processing in 2008.
