Scope and Content Note


The records comprising series 1 through 5 consist of correspondence, booklets, yearbooks, and research notes for catalogs or proposed catalogs by the various Curators. The "unprocessed" series consists of more than 11.5 linear feet of records produced during the same time period as the other series, with some additional material dating from the early 1980s. These records are primarily departmental files, comprised of correspondence and subject files, and date from the 1960s to approximately1982. Another set of unprocessed records pertain to the annual Crystall Ball galas that were held from 1959 to 1976, including the bicentennial affair.

Inventories are available in the Archives.
