Series V. Manuscript Logs, circa 1950s-2012
The manuscript logs consist of boxes of index cards. The cards are usually filed by first by author and then by title, although multivolume series are frequently filed first by publisher and then by title. The cards include the activity/dates/results of a title's submission to various publishers, date copy returned, etc.
Many of these boxes were not clearly labeled as to their contents. Boxes 625-627 appear to document inactive (and for the most part, unsold) titles; these boxes are generally unlabeled and one box is labeled as "inactive." Several other boxes are labeled as "sold" but the majority of the other box labels only indicate the alphabetical range of the box's contents.
