    The Swope Papers have not yet been fully organized. The correspondence has been grouped together alphabetically by correspondent. The arrangement of her astronomical working papers, however, mirrors that of the collection when it was obtained by the Huntington. The folder titles for the working papers are, for the most part, those of Henrietta Swope herself.
