Immediate Source of Acquisition
The collection was donated to the Archives of American Art by Lillian E. Travis's granddaughter, Sarah Crawford Fox, in 2012.
Processing Information
The collection was processed to a minimal level and a finding aid prepared in 2013 by Joy Goodwin. The Archives of American Art has implemented minimal processing tactics when possible in order to increase information about and access to more of our collections. Minimal processing included arrangement to the series and folder levels. Generally, items within folders were simply verified with folder titles, but not arranged further. Folders within boxes were not numbered. The collection was rehoused in archival containers and folders, but not all staples and clips were removed.
