The collection came to the Archives in two transfers--one of Marin material, and the latter of Stieglitz. Other than those two divisions, there was no discernible arrangement of materials. In many cases, Norman's original folder titles were very general or inaccurate as materials were clearly transferred in and out of folders over the years. Many folders were overstuffed and about one-third of the material was loose. Materials were refoldered, and identified and arranged generally by format. Folder titles within quotation marks represent Norman's original naming that clearly explained the rationale of that grouping of material. Photocopies were made of folder fronts annotated with additional information.
