Provenance and Acquisition Information

This collection was donated by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) under Executive Officer Charles Hancock in March of 1996.

Processing Note

This collection was processed under the supervision of Marcia Frank Peri, by assistants Rose King, Kristen Tranier, and Angelica Marini. The processing of the collection began in the Fall of 2003 and was finished in December of 2006. This was a very large collection with 211 banker Boxes donated. The existing collection is 109 Boxes. During the initial inventory, multiple copies were disposed of whenever there were more than two copies of a given document. General invoices, receipts and personnel information such as time sheets and payroll documents were also taken out of the collection. Plastic spiral binders and oversized folders were removed from the collection. A second deposit of materials in August of 2006 contained six additional Boxes. The initial organization of the collection was complete and the records from the additional Boxes were fit into the collection. The majority of the records were found to be in relatively good order since they were kept by ASBMB at their headquarters. The remaining records have been organized by type of activity based on the order in which they were received. Whenever possible the original order has been maintained. For the most part items are organized in chronological order, followed by alphabetical order.
