Processing Information

The Time Inc. Advertising Promotion and Circulation Promotion Files were processed by Melanie Rinehart and Nora Soto in 2019. The original folders were retained when possible, although some documents were transferred to archival containers in instances of overcrowding, if the original folder was in poor condition or undersized, or if no original folder was present. Branded binders were retained and housed with their contents; generic binders were disassembled and not retained, and their contents rehoused. Materials were arranged in their original order. Soto created the inventory and other descriptive notes to produce this finding aid.
