    Processing Information

    Craig Krull Gallery, the collection's previous custodian, provided a spreadsheet inventory listing all of the photographic prints in the collection. The item-level description in this finding aid was taken from the Craig Krull Gallery inventory. However, the inventory did not include physical storage information, such as box or folder numbers. Thus, the order of the item-level records in this finding aid does not reflect the physical arrangement of the photographs as they are currently stored.
