Source of Acquisition
NCAR Archives Legacy Collections
Method of Acquisition
This is a legacy collection without documentation regarding the date and manner of acquisition.
Publications were examined for Julian's handwritten notes. Those containing his notes were retained, all others (by other authors) were discarded. Publications authored by Julian were retained because they are not readily available elsewhere and are small in quantity. Copies of photographs beyond 1 copy, copies of documents beyond 2 copies, and routine correspondence were discarded.
Accruals and Additions
No further accruals are expected.
The Papers of Paul R. Julian is related to many collections in the NCAR Archives due to the natural relationship of NCAR records.
A press kit on GATE was removed and placed with the GATE collection. A report on hail research was removed and placed with the National Hail Research Experiment Records.
Processing was completed in February 2010. Upon acquisition, materials had little order. All folder titles were provided by the archivist as no materials were in folders upon acquisition.
Materials were re-housed in acid-free folders and boxes. Metal fasteners were removed and replaced with plastic clips when needed. Folded materials were un-folded and flattened when possible.
Correspondence materials are arranged by the sender. When the sender sent two or more pieces of communication, those materials were placed in their own folder and titled by the sender's name. All other correspondence was arranged alphabetically in one folder and labeled "A-Z."
Materials are arranged by type and folders are arranged alphabetically by title.
