Administrative Information

Acquisition: Material acquired from Paul Miller, curator at Preservation Society of Newport County, on 7 October 2008. In August 2007, Maria Bernier, University Archivist, had provided the Preservation Society with digital images of many receipts and letters from the Goelet family papers (SP 02). A significant number of the receipts were written in French, which made them unusable for most researchers. Mr. Miller offered to have his intern translate the receipts.
Accruals: No additional accruals are expected.
