Finding Aid, Upper Yazoo Project-1 From SRM 75.6 to 107.8


The MCX-CMAC utilizes the standard archival practice of unique naming of collections. The purpose of this is to avoid redundant and confusing collection names commonly found with archaeological investigations. Therefore, this collection is referred to as “Upper Yazoo Project-1, from SRM 75.6 to 107.8.” This naming practice is consistent throughout the finding aid, the file folder titles, and box labels. The linear extent of this collection is nine (9) linear inches.

This collection is very incomplete and consists almost exclusively of annotated report drafts and reviewers comments on these drafts. A small amount of administrative records (i.e., a single cover letter), a set of bibliographic references on index cards, and a few project maps completed the documentation found for this collection.

This collection contained legal-sized documents that were too large to be placed in letter-sized folders. All legal-sized documents were removed from the collection and placed into appropriate storage. Their removal was noted in three places; the folder from which they were removed, the folder to which they were moved, and the finding aid. A small number of oversize maps were also removed from this collection. They had been folded and placed into letter-sized manila folders. These materials were removed, flattened and placed in oversized storage. Again, the removal was noted in the originalvvfile, the file for the oversize series, and in the finding aid.
