Related Archival Materials Note

This finding aid relates to just one record group of the New-York Historical Society archives. For information about the other record groups and for overall information about the archives, please see the Guide to the New-York Historical Society Archives (NYHS-RG Archives). Other record groups that are processed and are especially related to the New-York Historical Society public programs and education records (NYHS-RG 23) are as follows:

New-York Historical Society audiovisual (NYHS-RG 28) includes audiotapes and videotapes of some of the programs documented in this record group. The tapes, however, are currently restricted from use because they are the original and only known copies; given their age, they are fragile and the N-YHS library does not have the necessary playback equipment.

Processing Information Note

The record group was compiled and partially arranged at some point, likely in the early 2000s. In December 2016, a rough overall arrangement of the files was implemented and a finding aid prepared by project archivist Larry Weimer. The record group was minimally processed and the bulk of the material remains in original folders.

Accruals Note

Further accruals to the record group are expected over time.
