Processing Information

Photographs across the first 29 pages were often missing, loose, or threatening to come loose. Those photographs not firmly glued to the pages were reshoused in archival sleeves and all metadata, including the page number from which it was pulled, noted with the photograph. For easier reference, blank pages in the album have been page numbered by the archivist.
Processing this collection has been funded by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
