Most, but not all, of the archival papers were transferred to Special Collections the same year. The Library cataloged ca. 10 publications in 1989 and set aside the remaining books, periodicals, recordings and archival materials. In July 1996 Special Collections transferred 2 sound recordings to the Library. In May 1997 approximately 0.6 linear feet of sound recordings, publications and archival materials were transferred to Special Collections from the Library.
