Processing History

Several catalogers have worked on various aspects of the collection, including Higgins himself. Michel Oren compiled a preliminary inventory, Sept 1991-June 1992. The document he produced was not incorporated into this finding aid, because it no longer reflected the box organization subsequently created. In July 1992, Higgins specified the series arrangement utilized in this finding aid and interfiled some of Series I, II and III. Jocelyn Gibbs, from January-May 1993 finished most of the remaining preliminary organization with assistance from Natalia Costea. Gibbs also completed physical processing and made finding aid notes for Series I, A-H and most of Series II. Lynda Bunting, from May 1993-January 1994, completed physical processing of Series I, II, and all of Series III, IV, and V. She also wrote the finding aid by incorporating Gibbs's notes with her own. In November 1993, Higgins worked directly with Bunting in order to interfile the recently received supplement and to identify unknown items.
