Edward Durell Stone Papers (MS St71/236 Stone)

This is the first accession of the Stone Papers, given by Edward Durell Stone to the University Libraries in 1975; consequently, only a paper finding aid exists to this part of the collection. This online description, an abridgement of the paper finding aid, includes a list of the nine series in which the first accession is arranged. An on-line finding aid exists for the second accession of the Stone Papers, MC 340, completed in 1998. The Project Index  provides access to project-related materials in either the first or second accession or both. For further assistance with the Stone Papers, consult the Special Collections staff.
