The New-York Historical Society General Correspondence record group (NYHS-RG 2) contains a variety of materials related to the Field Exploration Committee, William L. Calver, and Reginald P. Bolton.

In addition to N-YHS’s institutional archive, the manuscript collections hold related material including the William Louis Calver Papers, 1894-1940 (bulk 1900-1940), MS 96.

Processing Information Note

The negatives were arranged and housed in boxes by conservation intern Sara Belasco in 2015. The image and writings files were processed and the entire record group described by Margaret Kaczorowski in November 2016. Calver's catalogue (INV.5765) was transferred to the archives from the Museum Department in December 2017 and was added to the record group at that time by archivist Larry Weimer.
