The files in this collection are those of Victor Schoenbach, a white graduate student in the Department of Health Education who served as a discussion leader in the undergraduate course Health Education 33 (HEED 33) and as a counselor for the HSICS.

Processed by: Tierra Thomas, September 2019

Encoded by: Laura Smith, October 2019

Since August 2017, we have added ethnic and racial identities for individuals and families represented in collections. To determine 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 and racial 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 identity information to be excluded from description. When we have misidentified, please let us know at wilsonlibrary@unc.edu.
