Series VII. 1983-1992 departmental records
There are two subgroups to this series. The first consists of general correspondence and subject files combined in one alphabetical arrangement. The primary creators of these records are Joseph Rishel and Carl Strelkhe, and their files consist of general correspondence as well as specific activities such as lectures and travel. This subgroup also includes a significant number of folders pertaining to the John G. Johnson Collection and to a number of departmental volunteers. Some files include papers dating as early as 1980. The second subroup pertains to loans that were approved or considered possible as well as those refused or cancelled. Folder-level inventories of both subgroups are available in the Archives.
