Processing Information:

Accruals 1 - 4: Preservation Photocopies were made of some material; the copies are labeled "Preservation Photocopies, prepared [date]" Information on acidic clippings have been preserved and the clipping has been removed from the collection.Accruals 1 - 4: Throughout the collection, some material is in paper folders. Originally this material was grouped together by paperclip or staple. These metal fasteners have been removed and the buffered paper folders are used to keep the information together.Accrual 3: The scripts "Me, Vashya" by Tennessee (Thomas Lanier) Williams as of March 18, 2003: The 19pp Ts[c] of the script in the Washington University exam folder is from Accession 1753. There is a discrepancy with Accession 1652: the accession card states that there are three drafts of Tennessee Williams script for "Me, Vashya," but there is only the 22pp Ts[c] and the 1p Ts note that are probably part of Accession 1652. These three documents were moved back to the William G. B. Carson Theatre Collection, Accession 1652 and Accession1753 from the Miscellany collection.
