expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 4. Financial Papers, 1925-1985.

About 1500 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical.

Materials relating to the financial management of the John C. Campbell Folk School. Included are yearly auditors' reports detailing the financial position of the school, materials relating to agricultural projects, ledgers and loose sheets that track finances and transactions (loose sheets appear to overlap with those detailed in the primary general account ledgers both in time and in substance), and materials tracking receipts and payments that take up where the general account ledgers leave off (the latest of these are computer printouts, 1983-1985).
