Processing Information

The Theodor Rosebury papers were rehoused from original containers into archival folders and boxes and described at folder level upon their receipt at the Library in 2011. The collection remains largely in-tact as originally received; few files were weeded during final processing.

Custodial History:

The Theodor Rosebury papers were acquired as part of deaccessioning activities by the American Heritage Center in 2009. The collection was originally donated to the Center in 1982 by Rosebury's widow Amy Rosebury without deed of gift. The Rosebury Estate made an additional donation to the Center in 2009 through a deed of gift transferring all rights to the Center. The Center by deed of gift to NLM transferred its rights, and therefore Rosebury's, to the public domain.
