Appraisal, destruction and scheduling


System of arrangement

  • Two miscellaneous files to editors and U.S. publishers have been broken into separate files, and interpolated into the alphabetical sequence. A list of Wiebe's correspondence file titles has been preserved.
  • It should be noted that in some instances files contain letters and documents from sources other an the file title. For example, although separate McClelland and Steward Limited files exist, some McClelland and Stewart documentation is filed by Wiebe in the Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. files because of a co-publication venture. Occasionally, too, a letter is found attached to a manuscript, or a portion of a manuscript attached to a letter.
