The Chester W. Newton Collection consists of documents dated from 1928 to 1995, with the bulk falling between 1971 and 1981. Material types in the collections include correspondence, articles, reports, handwritten notes, records, photographs, meeting minutes, and ephemera.
The original order of the collection and the original folder titles have been maintained as much as possible. In the container list below, these titles have been transcribed as accurately as possible. There is not a distinction made between the original folder titles and those provided by the processors. Records are arranged by material type and then chronologically by the original printed date. The collection is housed in one record carton and organized into the following eight series:
Series I: Advisory Work
Series II: Correspondence
Series III: Publications
Series IV: Trips
Series V: Visits
Series VI: Photographs
Series VII: Awards and Honors
Series VIII: Miscellaneous
