On July 17, 2019, Anthony Flott, Director of Communication for UNO Alumni Engagement, emailed archivist Les Valentine that he had documents received from the Jenkins family for Archives and Special Collections. The material was transferred to UNO Libraries at some point after that date. The repository previously received photocopies of many of these documents prior to 2014 (no accession information is available for the earlier donation).
Immediate Source of Acquisition
Photocopies were received by library staff prior to 2014. Accession details are incomplete or absent, but the material was for the most part photocopies of material later received from the Jenkins family via UNO Alumni Association staff in 2019. No donation agreement is on file as of September 9, 2022.
Original accession processed by Criss Library staff prior to 2014. The 2019 accession was arranged with new folders noted by Amy Schindler on September 9, 2022.
