Beginning the archival evaluation

Filed under: Bitgood Papers Annex — Grace @ 12:03 am

A rough assessment of Roberta Bitgood’s unprocessed papers in terms of what is where, with reference to physical locations in her home, and the extent and content of the materials, is the starting point of my evaluation process. I hope that an overall survey of materials in each location at the Bitgood home can provide the basis for further analysis and processing, such that the unprocessed Bitgood collection can soon begin to be compared with its companion archive at Connecticut College. Four main locations need to be surveyed:

(1) the second floor studio

(2) the ground floor bedroom

(3) the basement

(4) the ground floor passageway

As of June 1, I am working in the basement. In this location alone, I have uncovered materials fitting all 7 categories listed in the previous post. To review, these are:

  • (I) Clippings
  • (II) Printed programs
  • (III) Correspondence
  • (IV) Notebooks
  • (V) Music formats
  • (VI) Books and pamphlets
  • (VII) Periodicals
  • No Comments
