- Processing Information
This collection was arranged and described by Miriam Lewin, Literary Executor, and Eva Lewin Radding, prior to donation to Princeton University. All materials were rehoused by Fiona Bell '18 and Rachel Dubin '17 in 2016. A finding aid, based on inventories provided by Miriam Lewin and Eva Lewin Radding, was produced by Kelly Bolding in 2016, with assistance from Fiona Bell '18 and Rachel Dubin '17. While intellectual arrangement and series and subseries enumeration from donor inventories were maintained during 2016 processing, materials were physically rehoused based on size.
