5.2 linear feet
Boxes 28-33, 38

This series includes budgets and proposals; financial records such as accounting ledgers, banking records, bills, cashbooks, statements of operation, and tax records; founding documents; fundraising correspondence and records; records of grants received and grant proposals; mailing lists; membership lists; and Meridian House Foundation records. Also found are three folders originally titled "Robert Richman's Desktop;" however, based on the dates of the materials, it is likely that the material is not exclusively from his desktop.
