Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of notebooks, notepads, and associated sheaves of paper arranged by date. Materials in this subseries have been gathered because of physical relationships, such as notes bound in spiral notebooks, or multiple pages of notes that still are or once were on the same pad of paper. These materials are intellectually similar to the materials in Subseries 2A: Loose Notes, but are physically distinct. Both subseries should be considered in tandem for the most complete look at Berg's notes at any given time.


This subseries is arranged chronologically.
