Language of Materials



For usability, each box in the collection has been designated as a series in the collection. These divisions do not represent any intellectual separation of materials which are arranged in a single, contiguous, chronological order.

While the physical clippings are arranged chronologically within each folder, the finding aid presents clippings slightly differently. Articles within the same folder are grouped by alphabetical publication to compensate for variations within description.

Existence and Location of Copies

All but 42 of the articles described are available digitally, however some article records do not currently link to their proper digital object. Please bear with us while we improve accesss. If the article you wish is not available online, please contact the archives for assistance.
