Language of Materials
The Nancy Friedersdorf papers document the professional career of Nancy Friedersdorf, primarily through speech and workshop notes, along with a smaller amount of biographical materials.
The Nancy Friedersdorf papers are organized into two series: 1. Biographical Information, 1965 – 2016 (0.2 cubic feet). This series contains a resume, correspondence, documentations of praise from colleagues and clients, clippings, and pamphlets. 2. Speeches, 1968 – 1989 (1 cubic feet) This series contains both manuscript-formatted speeches and speech notes on index cards. When possible, materials in both series are arranged by date. Undated materials are arranged alphabetically by title. Some note card materials are undated and untitled, so no arrangement was possible.
