Collection processed by Peter Filardo. An EAD finding aid was created in 2009 from the original guide to the Sam Darcy Papers written by Peter Filardo; it was edited by David Olson in 2013 for compliance with DACS and Tamiment Required Elements for Archival Description and to reflect the incorporation of nonprint materials and addition of unprocessed materials.
