Item Description: Processing Information: This collection was processed in 2013-2014 as part of an experimental project conducted under the auspices of the Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries to help eliminate processing backlogs in sixteen Philadelphia repositories. The project used a less intensive processing methodology than traditionally thought necessary to make a collection ready for use by researchers. When citing sources from this collection, researchers are advised to defer to folder titles provided in the finding aid rather than those provided on the physical folder. Employing processing strategies outlined in Mark Greene's and Dennis Meissner's 2005 article "More Product, Less Process: Revamping Traditional Processing Approaches to Deal With Late 20th-Century Collections," the project team processed at an average rate of 4 hours per linear foot of records, a fraction of the time traditionally reserved for the arrangement and description of collections. Among other time saving strategies, the project team did not extensively review the content of the collections or complete any preservation work.
Physical Description: 62.4 Linear feet ; 157 boxes
Access: For legal privacy reasons, a few folders are closed to researchers for 75 years from date of creation. These folders have been moved to Box 157, which may not be accessed. These files will be returned to their boxes once the restricted period as noted on each folder ends. See the Collection Inventory for details. The remainder of the collection is open for research.
