Series XII, Oversize Material, 1911-1946
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
Series XII, Oversize Materials, includes one scrapbook/photo album containing clippings, tickets, passes, etc. from his around-the-world trip, and one photo album attributed to William A. Hall with what appear to be construction scenes of the Panama Canal. There are several panoramic views of the Continental Divide 1911-1912, and photographs of employees in Hall's Shiraz and Meshed (Persia) offices, and a photo of the 1944 eruption of Vesuvius.
Eight documents accompanying Hall's awards and medals are also filed in this series.
The order in which these materials were sent to Princeton has been maintained.
About 14 maps were transferred to the Maps Division of the Geology Library (now Maps and Geospatial Information Center) in 1991. No other information about appraisal is available for this collection.
- Processing Information
This collection was initially processed in the 1970s. Subsequent processing by Barbara Bennet in 1991 resulted in an updated finding aid, series-level description, and container lists.
