Archivist Note

Note: Due to mandated “stay at home” orders during the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020, I, Jeanine Wine, the archivist, am processing these materials while at home. I am running out of archival file folders, and am doubling or tripling up on the contents of Folder H.

The University had to respond to the virus by sending students home and refunding money previously deposited for room and board.Faculty and staff were told that the financial impact of the virus on MU might be close to $2,000,000 and that all departmental spending would come to a stop.It is unclear if I will be able to order any more archival supplies before the fiscal year comes to a close at the end of June.

The boxes that I am processing in my home over this interim of social distancing were delivered to the archives last year from where they had been in storage in Calvin Ulrey….and I have had no time to get to them….nor, when I am able to return to the archives, do I see that I will be able to look backwards and spend time cleaning-up the paper files.  This, these days at home, is my moment of opportunity to describe contents and to do what I can.

Therefore, after giving it some thought, I will process the remainder of this box by using the pre-existing file folders. I will rewrite the names of the folders in archival ink on the folders themselves, in case the glued-on paper labels eventually fall off. I am also almost out of plastic clips, so I will be leaving the metal paper clips in place. These metal paper clips have been with these files since the 1960’s and 1970’s, and I suppose it will do little damage for them to remain with these pages for another 50 years….if anybody is alive to read them.     Jeanine Wine 31 March 2020
