Most of the collection is open for research immediately upon request. However, since the collection contains personnel records,
some materials are restricted. In Series 1, Administrative Records, and Series 4, Personal and Professional Files, restricted
materials have been identified and separated, and they are marked as such in this guide's contents listing. Series 2, Correspondence,
contains personnel records interfiled throughout the series, so unrestricted materials in this series can only be made available
with advance notice. Finally, materials in Series 7, Audio Recordings, must also be requested in advance so use copies can
be made. Researchers who wish to request access to materials in Series 2 and Series 7 should contact the Department of Special
Collections and Archives.
