Darlene Olivo Collection

Location: NCCROW

Source of Acquisition: Donation by Darlene Olivo


Processor: Mo Ki Macias, Newcomb College 2004

Last Updated: spring 2001

Organization and Arrangement: Materials have been arranged in one box containing seventeen (17) folders with low acidic bases. Materials have been arranged in the same order as received; the materials are primarily personal journals, dated and compiled by Darlene Olivo. The journals, letters, and miscellaneous documents are not in chronological order, and need to be updated when processing of the entire collection is complete. The documents have been flattened, and all metal fastenings removed. If any were in poor condition, they were photocopied on non-acidic archival paper. The photographs and artwork were placed in mylar, and included in the original order.
