Collection Description & Creator Information
The original arrangement of the files was maintained. Files are grouped by organization.
Duplicates of Pendray's book Time Capsule were separated from the collection in 2008.
These papers were processed with an operating support grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State.
- Processing Information
No information about the physical processing of this collection is available. A finding aid was created in 2008 by Casey Babcock.
Lantern slides found in former Box 18 were rehoused in Boxes 100-107 in February, 2020. There is now no Box 18 in the papers.
Access & Use
- Conditions Governing Access
The collection is open for research.
Access to the lantern slides in Boxes 100-107 is restricted due to their fragility. Though digitization may not be possible for every slide, researchers may make requests to digitize material according to Mudd Library's policy on digitization of photographs
- Conditions Governing Use
Single photocopies may be made for research purposes. For quotations that are fair use as defined under U. S. Copyright Law, no permission to cite or publish is required. For those few instances beyond fair use, researchers are responsible for determining who may hold the copyright and obtaining approval from them. Researchers do not need anything further from the Mudd Library to move forward with their use.
- Physical Characteristics and Technical Requirements
For preservation reasons, original analog and digital media may not be read or played back in the reading room. Users may visually inspect physical media but may not remove it from its enclosure. All analog audiovisual media must be digitized to preservation-quality standards prior to use. Audiovisual digitization requests are processed by an approved third-party vendor. Please note, the transfer time required can be as little as several weeks to as long as several months and there may be financial costs associated with the process. Requests should be directed through the Ask Us Form.
33 1/3 rpm and 78 rpm 10" acetates of radio interviews are located in Box 67.
