Processing Information

This finding aid compiles archival collecting, description, and preservation work performed by Nancy Kaiser, Patrick Cullom, and Steve Weiss, March 2020.

Encoded by: Nancy Kaiser, March 2020

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.
