General note

Separated Materials: Oversized materials, pennants, and artifacts were separated based on departmental procedures and placed in various locations, described in separation sheets.
Identified photographs of K-State staff members and students and other photos related to Kansas State University from the 1880s to the 1920s were separated and placed in the Photograph Collection—Subject files and Photograph Collection—People files. Commencement programs from 1913 to 1942 were also separated and are now located with the commencement program collection. Finally, there were a few books pulled from the collection for standard cataloging.
