This collection was donated to the Seminary Libraries by Fred Cassell in June 1998, after he had received them from Mr. Sawyer's daughter, Ruth, before her death in September 1997. The collection was processed, and the original finding aid was written in August of 1998, by library staff under the direction of William O. Harris, Archivist. The finding aid was edited by Sarah Seraphin and Daved Anthony Schmidt in May of 2009.
There are no special restrictions to the access of this collection. It may be examined by library patrons under the normal rules and conditions of Special Collections.
