December 2020 guides added to SCARC collections

SCARC completed two new or updated finding aids in December 2020.

These finalized finding aids are available through the Archives West finding aids database, and the OSUL discovery system (a.k.a. “the catalog”).

Both of these guides are enhanced finding aids for collections that were previously under-described with incomplete guides: 

Ruth Newmyer Photograph Collection, 1915 (P 239)

The Ruth Newmyer Photograph Collection consists of photographic prints collected by alumna Ruth Newmyer during her student years at Oregon Agricultural College. Mounted on scrapbook pages, these images depict Corvallis buildings and streetscapes, OAC campus views, and Mt. Hood. Newmyer graduated with an undergraduate degree in home economics in 1916. An image from this collection has been digitized and is available in Oregon Digital.

Thomas F. Savage Papers, 1977-1997 (MSS Savage)

The Thomas F. Savage Papers consist of annual reports documenting research conducted as a part of the Western Regional Turkey Research Project. Savage worked on this project for the Oregon State University Poultry Science Department, and later, for the Animal Sciences Department. Savage was at OSU from 1982 until 2010.

All of these materials are now available to researchers.
