Immediate Source of Acquisition: Purchase, 2008
Processing Information: Processed and encoded by John D. M. Caldwell, 2019.

Because of the quality of the original housing of the scrapbooks and the diverse materials present in the scrapbooks (e.g. newsprint, stickers and bumper stickers with adhesive), collection items have been put into mylar sleeves and rehoused into acid-free binder boxes for preservation. Multiple volumes have been rehoused together, with title sheets on acid-free paper separating multiple volumes housed in the same box.
