Provenance and Aquisition Information MSS 1997-01; The present collection was donated by Susan and Philip Wagner on January 23, 1997 and transferred from Philip Wagner's home in Riderwood, Maryland.
Processing Information The manuscripts were found in a somewhat disordered state and in generally fair condition. The collection had been previously sorted so that the original order was not entirely clear but there appeared to be disctinct divisions in the materials between those documents created during Wagner's work for the Sun and those resulting from either his work as a free lance writer or his founding and running of Boordy Vineyards. As such it seemed best to arrange them into threse three primary series. The collection was processed by Marcia Frank Peri December 1997.
