1. Fieldwork Contact Sheets and Supporting Documents
Note: Inventory sheets (by fieldworker) account for what fieldwork materials are present. Most fieldwork is arranged alphabetically by fieldworker. In some cases, often when the material was contributed or gathered by more than one fieldworker, the folder is labeled and arranged by subject. Some of Saltzman's interview notes in Box 14 are labeled according to artist. In a few instances, such as in the Beth Rotto and Harry Oster folders, one will find fieldwork not gathered specifically for the festival project.
