Series 2: Dorothy Davis Files, 2004-2017
Collection Description & Creator Information
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.
Approximately one linear foot of out-of-scope and duplicative paper materials and CDs/DVDs from accessions ML.2016.019 and ML.2016.023 were removed from the collection.
From the digital files in accession ML.2016.019, directories titled ""Off Limits" and "Database" were deleted.
From the digital files in accession ML.2016.023, 44 empty directories were deleted. Two individual files and three directories containing sensitive data were also deleted.
