Collection Description & Creator Information
Writings are grouped roughly by genre.
- Custodial History
The collection was formed as a result of a departmental practice of combining into one collection manuscript material of various accessions relating to a particular author.
During 2015 re-processing, a copy of a dissertation by the original processor of the collection, Donald Fox, and explanatory correspondence related to later donations were separated from the collection and placed in the collection file.
- Processing Information
This collection was processed by Donald Hardie Fox, Jennifer Bowden, Jennifer Groom, and Jennifer Maloney in 1976, 1993 , 1998, and 1999. Donald Hardie Fox first processed the collection in 1976 and created a detailed finding aid. In the 1990s, at the discretion of the manuscripts curator, the correspondence series was re-processed and organized into an alphabetical format, and some of the other material was re-sorted into a new series organization. The folder inventory was updated to reflect this later arrangement scheme by Kristine Gift (GS) in 2015.
