|One of the 8 locked volumes|
|example of on e of the huge volumes, length, width and height|
This collection was difficult to process because of its size, the heaviness of most of the volumes, the fact that 8 are still locked (we can't break the locks due to how the locks are affixed into the volumes) and the disarray of the papers.
|three sections full of volumes|
I also commend all the students who helped us move and reshelve all those heavy volumes: S. Albinhamad, C. Stephens, C. Olson, B. Schamber, K. Tremlin.
Here are the abstracts for each series:
Series 1: 1883, 1976, undated 3.5 cubic ft. (in 7 boxes, 2 Oversized volumes) The collection includes: letters, catalogs, photographs, personal and business correspondence, clippings (copies), specifications, time books, scrapbooks, genealogical materials, and other materials. The material is in English, Russian, German.
|Two more sections of volumes, note the very thick volumes on the second shelf.|
