Processing Information

The bulk of the collection was physically arranged by VSNY at some point prior to its donation to N-YHS in 2019. In August 2022, archival intern Michelle D. Novak integrated the unorganized documents into the collection, made some modifications to the existing arrangement of documents, and rehoused/consolidated the whole. Archivist Margo Padilla preserved the digital files from the discs in the collection, working with Novak on the labeling and arrangement of those files. Novak prepared this finding aid for the collection as a whole.
