Accession ARCH-1992-097 Original Accession

Scope and Content Note

This accession consists of papers authored by Robert Hofstadter. The papers were retained in the order in which they were received; the original numbering scheme was also retained. A number of empty folders were discovered during processing and are noted in the inventory. They have been retained to preserve the integrity of the original numbering scheme. Researchers should note that much overlap exists between this series and the Publications subseries found elsewhere in the collection.
