Scope and Content Note

Donor Note

Gatewood family


This collection has no discernible order. The collection was received in various accruals and is presumably arranged in the order of which it was received upon arrival. An accrual from University Manuscripts has been added as Boxes #37 and #38--it has been reboxed, but remains in the order it was found in University Manuscripts. The collection needs further organization.
