Processing Information:

The provenance of these materials is unknown. They were housed together in one box for many years and appear to have been a gift of Laura Turnbull, a Presbyterian who resided in Princeton in the 1930s. Many of these items originally belonged to J. Ross Stevenson, President of Princeton Seminary from 1914 to 1936. This collection was organized and the original finding aid was written in September of 1996 by Raymond D. Cannata, under the direction of William O. Harris, Archivist. The finding aid was edited in March of 2009 by Sarah Seraphin.
