Processing History

This collection was rehoused and the description was revised by Olivia Newsome in March 2024. In March 2024, Olivia Newsome moved this collection from a previous record group, BC06 (Faculty Committees), to the current record group, BC19 (Committees), to reflect the fact that this was not a faculty committee. Olivia Newsome also updated the finding aid at this time.
