Immediate Source of Acquisition

The Lewis Carroll Society of North America (LCSNA) Archive was initially donated to the Fales Library in March 2003. An accretion was received from LCSNA in November of 2012, and a second accretion was donated by LCSNA member August Imholtz in 2014. In July 2016, an accretion of material was once again received by August Imholtz; the accession number associated with this gift is 2016.052.

Processing Information

Decisions concerning arrangement, description, and physical intervention prior to 2016 have not yet been recorded. The 2016 accretion materials were transferred to acid-free folders, and the Alice in Wonderland pins were placed in a protective, paper sleeve before all materials were placed in a half manuscript box. Materials for this accretion were added to the collection as a separate series in keeping with the existing arrangement scheme.
