Processing History

Ramsay Bell Breslin numbered the folders and wrote an extensive inventory in preparation for the Getty Research Institute's acquisition of the archive. Laurel McPhee began processing and arranging the collection and writing the finding aid in November-December 2003 and Andra Darlington completed the work in December 2005-April 2006. James Breslin's original order was maintained in the alphabetical arrangement of files on individuals and institutions, and in the topical arrangement of other files; new topics were assigned and documents interfiled as necessary. Original file folders were retained only if Breslin had written notes on them.
