Processing Information

Processed by: Nancy Kaiser, December 2004

Encoded by: Nancy Kaiser, December 2004

Revisions: Finding aid updated in January 2006 and September 2006 by Nancy Kaiser; in October 2007 by Rachel Canada and Roslyn Holdzkom; in December 2017 by Anne Wells; and in May 2019 by Nancy Kaiser and Patrick Cullom.

Since August 2017, we have added ethnic identities for individuals and families represented in collections. To determine ethnic identity, we rely on self-identification; other information supplied to the repository by collection creators or sources; public records, press accounts, and secondary sources; and contextual information in the collection materials. Omissions of ethnic identities in finding aids created or updated after August 2017 are an indication of insufficient information to make an educated guess or an individual's preference for ethnicity to be excluded from description. When we have misidentified, please let us know at wilsonlibrary@email.unc.edu.
