Summary
Contains three volumes of handwritten map accession information dating from 1911 to 1968. (Some overlapping dates exist between the ledgers). This accession also includes an annotated copy of the Bulletin of the Virginia State Library (Vol. 7, Nos. 2/3) which contains "Maps relating to Virginia in the Virginia State Library and other Departments of the Commonwealth with the 17th and 18th Century Atlas-Maps in the Library of Congress," written by Earl G. Swem in 1914. Two copies of a paper entitled "A Classification of Maps," given by Assistant Librarian Wilmer L. Hall at the catalogers' conference of the Virginia Library Association in 1924 are also included, as are two copies of "Procedure for the Care of Maps," and one copy of "Classification and Cataloging of Maps and Atlases," which appear to be in-house guides. This accession also includes correspondence between Assistant Librarian Wilmer Hall and other librarians on the topics of map classification and cataloging in 1925; miscellaneous correspondence, 1932-1949; receipts, 1943-1963; and other miscellaneous items
