History of an archival collection

http://readingarchives.blogspot.com/2008/05/history-of-archival-collection.html

Reading Sara Christine Snyder’s “Odyssey of an Archives: What the History of the Gordon W. Prange Collection of Japanese Materials Teaches Us About Libraries, Censorship, and Keeping the Past Alive,” MA thesis, University of Maryland, 2007 reminds me that there are probably a lot of theses done on archival topics that we miss (dissertations usually lead to some form of publication, but masters theses often do not). You can find this study online at http://hdl.handle.net/1903/6954.

Snyder relates the story of how this collection of materials, compiled during the Allied Occupation of Japan, came to reside in the U.S. at the University of Maryland.
