Reply To: physical arrangement of photographs in manuscript collections

Charlene Martin

Hi Lea, may I ask further questions? I really appreciate the help!

Although the photographs were in the same binder as the papers, they weren’t integrated in with them – they were in the back of the binder. That was why I was considering a physical arrangement of folder-documents, folder-photographs. In this same collection, there area lot of photo albums that loosely fit into subject areas that reflect the subject-series that the creator made for the whole collection.

If I follow original order, do I implement the order I above for the one instance that the creator kept photos with manuscripts, and keep all other photos in one big series-sub series grouping at the end of the collection?
