Immediate Source of Acquisition

Gift of Stephen G.C. Ensko's daughter, Dorothea (Dee) Charlotte Wyle, in 1991, with a small addition from Wyle in 2003.

Processing Information

The collection was processed to only a minimal extent in 2020-21 by archivists Elise Winks and Larry Weimer. Consequently many documents remain roughly organized in original folders, and even loose in boxes in many cases. Nonetheless, given the size of the collection, some emphasis was placed on describing the collection, so the finding aid and container list is a fairly complete representation of the content.
