Collection History


No information about appraisal is available for this collection.

Processing Information

The deGaulle photographs were foldered individually. The copy negatives were placed temporarily into individual envelopes, but should be sleeved. A decision should be made regarding sleeving individual photoprints and whether to use alkaline buffered folders. In addition, should copy negatives be housed separate from collections and indexed into a database? The copy prints can probably be sold to readers as requests are made since they duplicate both the original prints and the negatives. The French Africa photographs were foldered five items to a folder.

This is an unprocessed collection. The contents list provided is a preliminary inventory.
