Collection History

Archival Appraisal Information:

Materials relating to the Dixie Cup Corporation were removed from the collection in 1995. The Dixie Cup Records are located in the archives at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa. Please contact the Archives and Special Collections at Lafayette College for information regarding this collection.

A small group of materials relating to the Committee on the Marshall Plan, of which Moore served as treasurer, were separated from the collection in April, 1994, and sent to the Truman Presidential Library in Independence, Missouri where they will complement the other holdings on the Marshall Plan that Moore had sent to that library at an earlier date.

Several books that came in the April 2012 accession were sent to the book sale.
