Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

DVD; Disk004 from ML.2016.035


Paper materials in Series 1: Shelly Ross Files were arranged by an archivist according to the organizational scheme of the digital records. Digital records in Series 1 remain in their original order as received from the donor.

Paper materials in Series 2: Dorothy Davis Files remain in their original order as received from the donor. In the digital records, all folders within top-level folder "Sirleaf Market Women's Fund" were moved to other top-level folders or became their own top-level folders. The "Sirleaf Market Women's Fund" folder was renamed "Uncategorized" and contains 12 files that were not in any subfolders. "SMWF Ford Foundation" within top-level folder "New folder (2)" was moved to the top-level and the empty "New folder (2)" was deleted.
