Processing History

Ladislay Pugel, Special Collections Intern from October 1990-June 1991, processed and cataloged the first shipment. Materials from the Pittore, Yager and Saunders collections were separated from the archive. All three collections received an accession-level catalog record, but were not processed. Rebecca Markman alphabetized some items from the 1993 supplement, which comprises the bulk of the archive. From April to September 1998, Lynda Bunting reintegrated the Pittore, Yager and Saunders collections, reprocessed the entire collection and wrote the finding aid.
