National Research Council, 1989
Materials available in this collection represent Sarah Emmott’s personal files. Archival processing preserved the original order of the materials as collected by Emmott. Alphabetical order is the primary arrangement pattern with multiples of an organization or issue arranged in chronological order. Emmott’s papers comprise three series housed in 15 boxes. Series 1 holds a single folder for biographical and historical materials on the Emmotts. Series 2 covers materials collected from organizations and agencies at local, state, and national levels. Series 3 offers materials on an array of issues and events.
It should be noted that Houston Metropolitan Research Center (HMRC) holds a complementary four-box collection of Emmott papers, including two boxes of scrapbooks. Although the HMRC collection includes some letters and memorabilia, the UH-HHA collection represents a substantial range of environmental issues and organizations.
