Wilson Shorthand and Handwriting from Woodrow Wilson Library, dates not examined
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Papers of Woodrow Wilson Project's original arrangement was maintained.
Typescripts and galleys for published volumes, as well as personnel files from the Administrative section of the collection, were discarded. Microfilm reels duplicating the collections within the Princeton University Library's Microforms Department, photocopies of materials held by the Special Collections Department of the Princeton University Library, and photocopies of materials that duplicated microfilm held in the collection were separated from this collection.
Some indexes, including a chronological file of all correspondence gathered by the editorial staff and a numerical file (matching up to the numbers stamped on all photocopied documents gathered) and several source files were removed from the records in 2020. Thus there is a gap in box numbering between Boxes 533 and 663, and between 690 and 694.
