- MS 179
Printed paper is the predominant format in the collection though there are numerous black and white and color photographic prints, some objects and other ephemera and an 8mm sound film.
A large portion of the collection is comprised of various scrapbooks. The scrapbooks contain printed material, ephemera, and photographic prints, either taped or pasted on acidic paper that has browned and is brittle. The pages were removed from the scrapbooks, original order maintained, and stored in acid-free folders. In addition to the scrapbooks, the collection contained a large number of newspaper clipping. The clippings have not been arranged and are extremely brittle.
Highlights of the collection include the photo scrapbook, “The Army Life of Irvin Alan Kraft” and the complete records of Dr. Kraft’s military service.
The collection is approximately four cubic feet and contains seven boxes (three cubic foot, four various sizes) and one oversize folder. The materials are in fair to good condition and there are no preservation concerns at this time. The scrapbook pages are stored flat in boxes 4, 5, and 6; take care when removing the folders to preserve original order.
