Special Assignment

6/10/2019

I was supposed to go back to the Pulliam collection today, but Stephanie was out, so Tanya had a special assignment for me. I am organizing the Walter Eugene Daniel collection. He was an attorney North Carolina state senator in the late 19th and early 20th centuries who graduated from Wake Forest College. He was also a member of the Democratic Party and supported Jim Crow, unfortunately. The collection is mostly letters written from him to his fiancée, later wife, whom he met through a friend. The collection is already well-organized chronologically. I just have to figure out the subject of each group of letters and decide whether to rearrange them by topic or correspondence figures in addition to a temporal aspect.
