The Bill Wright Document Archive

Table of Contents

 

Bill Wright’s collection was turned over to Greg Kwiatkowski as a stack of document-filled folders (and folders within folders), as well as other loose documents. The archive is presented here as found, with documents grouped under their folder’s name, or as “Loose Documents”. Given their age and the number of people who may have looked through the papers over the years, it’s unlikely that they are sorted just as Bill left them, but hopefully most of that integrity has been maintained.

The documents were further divided below the folder or “Loose” level by subject area, as part of preparation for presentation here. In some cases (primarily the handwritten notes), it was unclear as to how they could best be grouped. Educated guesses about groupings were made based on the documents’ subject matter, dates, and proximity to each other as found.

The total archive contains about 1200 pages of information. Approximately 835 pages are currently presented here, with the remaining pages scheduled to be added sometime in 2019.
