Series 4: Fraser Barron Files, 1971-2000
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
Series 4 is composed of papers from legislative campaigns that were generated by consultant Fraser Barron and collected by William Byler, including notes, correspondence, government documents, and reports. The papers mostly pertain to the Havasupai tribe's claims to territory in the Grand Canyon and the water rights of other Arizona tribes.
Materials in this series have been intellectually grouped together; however, they remain in their original physical order as received from the donor.
No material was separated during processing in 2008 or 2015.
During reprocessing in 2018, approximately one linear foot of receipts and invoices for individual expenses were discarded. The financial statements of Byler's firms, monthly invoices to tribal leadership, and other more substantial financial documents were retained.
- Processing Information
This collection was processed by Tal Eisenzweig in August 2008. A collection-level description and a file-level inventory were created but no arrangement occurred at this time. The Fraser Barron files in Box 23 were added to the collection in 2015 after being discovered in the repository.
The collection was reprocessed by Rachel Van Unen in February-March 2018 after receiving preservation treatment for mold. The collection was intellectually arranged into four series and materials were rehoused in new archival folders.
