MSS #: MC 58
Processed and guide written by: Bethany Sayles (Class of 2003), Summer 2001
Volume: 16 linear feet (34 boxes)
Provenance: The Rudolph Papers had been collected by the Archives since the early 1980s. Various unprocessed materials (original Acc. No. 0-397) and three partially processed collections-Curricular materials (original Acc. No. 1988-052), Correspondence, Speeches and Writings, and Subject files (original Acc. No. 1991-017), Correspondence 1938-1950 (original Acc. No. 1992-013)-were absorbed into MC 58. Accession # 2004-023 folders were added in August 2004. The basic organization (i.e., the contents of folders and folder titles) is, to a great extent, the actual filing structure maintained by Rudolph himself.
Restrictions: Materials of a sensitive or personal nature, including student and faculty recommendations, student grades, etc. have been removed from their folders and placed in a separate box at the end of the collection. Restrictions apply to all researchers except for Rudolph and/or the individual students in question.
Conservation: Letters were removed from envelopes. Paperclips, staples and rubber bands were removed and replaced with archival fasteners. Acidic clippings and documents in fragile condition were photocopied onto acid-free paper. Acidic pamphlets and booklets were placed in acid-free envelopes. All material was placed in acid-free folders and boxes.
Copyright: Request for permission to publish material from the collection must be submitted in writing to the College Archivist.
