Processing Information

In October 2019, two folders labeled "Helen Schleman," were removed from this series. Upon closer inspection, it was determined that some of the materials in these folders were collected posthumously. These were separated from the collection and processed into a new MSF 536, Collection on Helen B. Schleman, which contains materials about Schleman and her life that have been collected by her close friends. Other documents that pre-dated Schleman's death were integrated into their respective appropriate series and are noted.
