Processing Information

The skits in this series were previously catalogued under Series 12, Secondary works on Swarthmore College. Beginning in 1997, College Archives were re-processed into more specific topics. Other materials in the old Series 12, including histories of the College, are currently catalogued in RG 6/Series V: Reference, stored in the FHL workroom. Original letters concerning the history of the College and a speech by Everett Hunt have been removed to Miscellaneous Manuscripts, with acid-free photocopies filed in RG 6/V.

The Songs in this series were previously catalogued in under "Miscellaneous."
