Collections in Process: The Baltimore Chapter of the National Council of Jewish Women
A blog post by Archivist Jennifer Vess.
In 2002 the staff of the JMM got a call from the Baltimore Chapter of the National Council of Jewish Women about donating part of their files to the museum. The collections staff brought in and processed 29 linear feet of material (ie. 29 packing boxes.) The collection became MS 124 and has been used by museum staff and outside researchers on numerous occasions.
This past spring we got another call from the Baltimore Chapter of the National Council of Jewish Women. The organization was moving out to new offices and they offered another group of files to add to the collection already at the museum. 29 linear feet is a big collection, but what we got this time is even bigger – over forty boxes came from the NCJW into the museum and we have wasted no time digging in.
