Processing Information

During the original processing of the O'Neill papers, three-dimensional objects, including framed materials, were minimally processed and described at the end of the collection in a single series. In 2022 these materials were further subdivided into the Awards and Memorabillia series for improved access. Photographs formerly found in the artifacts series are now included in the Photographs series.
