Processing Information

From internal information, a folder of Albert Cook Myers correspondence and papers of his sister, E. Mae Myers, were sent to the Director of Friends Historical Library after Albert C. Myers moved to West Chester, Pa. in late life. Both individuals were graduates of Swarthmore College, so the papers were added to Alumni Reference. In 2017, upon review by staff, the papers of E. Mae Myers including her diaries and other papers were processed as an RG5. The unrelated correspondence of Albert Cook Myers was removed for processing as a Small Collection.
