Custodial History

In August 1998, Les Valentine, University Archivist, met with Jim Leslie, John Langan, and the executor of Dr. Hollie Bethel's estate. As Bethel had died with no heirs, Valentine was encouraged to gather from Bethel's apartment materials related to her "interests and involvements at UNO."
