Mary Koch Wilhelm Collection

 Unprocessed — Multiple Containers
Identifier: H2006-010

Content Description

The collection consists of diaries, journals, calendars, and notes taken during the life of Mary (Koch) Wilhelm. The materials run from the 1920s to the 1980s. Some of the diary entries are in journal form, others are written within calendar date boxes. Topics in the diaries include: ranching, Custer County, Rapid City (S.D.), and family history. An attempt has been made to put the materials in as close to chronological order as possible. Content materials were also stored in individual polypropylene sleeves. These materials were removed from the sleeves with the contents kept together in individual acid free folders. In addition, any sleeves with individual sheets of paper were left in the sleeve and placed collectively in an acid-free folder. There were also 5 floppy disks with transcripts from the diaries. The contents of the disk were also burned onto a CD and added to the collection. Digital items were processed in accordance with the Archives’ Digital Preservation Rules.
