Some Princeton Spelunking

by Matt Frost

The beginning of next week will be spent out at Princeton Sem for the Barth-Aquinas conference, so while I’m out there, I may be spending some free time in their archives. We have several recordings of Joe at PTS, and those are first on the list, for researching some of the details. I know there were other occasions where Joe and Pres. McCord were in the same places, and McCord’s files show correspondence from the Institute of Theology. In Pauck’s files there’s a Sittler bio of Pauck and some correspondence, and the McIntire files have something as well. (Which is a big win for web-accessible standard archival descriptions – a benefit to a) standard fonds collection and organization at the institution level, and b) a paid archivist.) That’s a fantastic start, before I get there! To have leads in hand with series and box numbers, from the website … I want that for the Sittler Archives. Obviously I’m also interested in the materials, but gleaning methods is part of the job, too!
