Series 17. Ryan Home Office Files, 1947-1972
Collection Description & Creator Information
The collection contains material from Ryan's time as a United States Congressman including campaign materials from New York and Washington D.C., correspondence, research and subject files, and office records. There are also files from his home office and personal papers.
The order in which these materials were sent to Princeton has been maintained.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
No extensive archival processing work has been done and the series names, for the most part, are the same as those assigned by Ryan's office. The papers remain in essentially the same order in which they were received except that some box level appraisal occurred in 1992. Some boxes containing duplicate or insubstantial material were discarded.
Box numbers that do not appear on this checklist have, after being evaluated by the archivists, been discarded.
Five boxes of scrapbooks containing newspaper clippings from widely available sources were discarded in June 2007.
