Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


Materials are arranged alphabetically by name. In several cases where multiple documents were acquired as an aggregate, materials remain in original groupings under the collector's name.

Collection History


No materials were removed from the collection during 2018 processing beyond routine appraisal practices.

Processing Information

The collection was physically reprocessed and a folder inventory was added to the finding aid by Julia English '19 in July 2018. At this time, identifying information about materials that was written on folders was transcribed into the finding aid and supplemented as needed. The existing collection-level description was revised by Kelly Bolding in August 2018. A decision was made not to update the collection title per DACS 2.3.3 at this time in order to avoid potential overlap with other collections of New Jersey documents assembled by Princeton University Library.

One folder of material containing Board of General Proprietors of the Eastern Division of New Jersey, Minutes of Meetings was treated for mold in August 2018.
