Processing History

George Herms and Sarah Anderson did the initial processing of the first portion of the archive and prepared a rough box list over the course of two years, from circa 2006 to 2008. In 2009, Sheila Prospero processed the latter part of the archive and organized it into series that Herms helped develop. In 2010, Annette Leddy, Emmabeth Nanol and Jan Bender organized and integrated the two portions of the archive into these series, slightly adjusting them, and divided up the series for further processing and cataloging.

Emmabeth Nanol processed and cataloged Series I, II, V, VIII, IX, and XI. She and Jan Bender cataloged Series XII. Jan Bender processed Series X, XII, and XV. Annette Leddy processed and cataloged Series III, IV, VI, VII, XIII, and XIV, and also supervised the project and prepared the notes and records.

Box-level cataloging is complete, and certain series have been cataloged at the folder level. Series IV has been cataloged at the folder level up to 1980 only. Three boxes, temporarily assigned numbers 378, 379 and 380, contain materials from all series, but mostly from Series XV, that need further conservation, after which they will be integrated into the collection. Box 376*, containing miscellaneous material and ephemera, needs further conservation as well.
