This collection has been condensed into one box and roughly maintained in the order in which it was found in University Manuscripts. Materials from the Vertical Files have been added to the collection, and the Jewell Watson Papers and Thorp Spring Christian College Records have been combined as they had unintentionally been previously separated.
