This finding aid was produced using the Archivists' Toolkit on June 25, 2015

Container List

Series I: Files. 93.5 linear feet 75 Paige Cartons - 1 filed legal, 74 filed letter

Scope and Content note

Series I contains general files, mostly from Foreman's personal hanging file. The contents of this series relate to nearly all facets of Foreman's life and work.

Arrangement note

All efforts were made to preserve the original arrangement of the collection. Series I is described at the box level, with a listing of the types of files that are ostensibly contained within. These file types, generated by the finding aid author, are as follows:

Administrative Materials
Documentation
Drafts
Financial Files
Grant Materials
Outlines
Personal Files
Press
Production Files
Publishers’ Files
Source Material
Teaching Materials

Each file type is annotated parenthetically when it pertains to a specific medium or organization. Each box is then annotated, when applicable, with a list of specific works that are referenced within the materials in the box (see Biographical Note for list of works).
