Processing Information

The collection was processed and arranged topically at some point in time, perhaps in the 1990s. A container list was prepared in 2003 by archivist Jenny Gotwals as part of an overall Posters Collection (PR 55) finding aid. In 2018, archivist Larry Weimer prepared a finding aid for the World War II posters, incorporating and expanding on the 2003 container list.
