Collection History

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.
