Immediate Source of Acquisition
Materials were collected at various times from various sources by Friends Historical Library staff.
This collection is maintained in filing cabinets in the Friends Historical Library workroom. In December 2021, an outdated internal finding aid was updated to match the current contents. At that time, a small number of folders were discarded or consolidated. A few folders whose titles included potentially offensive or harmful terms were renamed, although researchers may still encounter these terms on the folder contents.
