Collection Overview

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.

Collection History


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.

Access & Use

Conditions Governing Access

Collection is open for research use.

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.
