Processing History

An inventory of the collection was taken in 1986 by Tim Netsch, and again in 1990 by Miriam Gaber. The 16mm films were reviewed by Mary Fenton and Jennifer Young, who compiled a summary of the contents of some of the films. In 1992, Beth Guynn processed the correspondence, manuscripts and portions of the glass plates. The scrapbooks, glass plates and several large portfolios were processed by Teresa Morales in 1996. Julie Rosenberg completed the processing and cataloguing of the collection in June 1997. The finding aid was initially revised in 2016. In 2020, Series X. Motion picture films and negatives was further revised to clarify that the film reels originally identified as nitrate were determined to be acetate.
