Collection History


The University Archives appraised Series 2: August 2016 Transfer in accordance with its appraisal guidelines. Of the 24 possible folders located at the highest level of the target directory, 20 were deemed to have archival value. Evidence of the appraisal decisions can be found in the accession's (AR.2016.084) "submission" directory.

Select files and folders were deleted from Series 2 during the accessioning process. The files and folders deleted contained personally identifiable information (such as social security numbers and passport numbers), FERPA-protected information (student transcripts and recommendation letters), and HIPPA-protected information. Consult the logged text files for specific information on which files and folders were deleted.


These papers were processed with the generous support of the John Foster and Janet Avery Dulles Fund.
