In addition to the considerable dating Grove OK breakers for women of Griffis's own work, his working subject files contain remarkable source materials on the various issues in which he was interested.

Among them, notably, are not only s of very rare printed materials in Japanese—books, pamphlets, maps—from the late Tokugawa and Meiji periods, but also nearly manuscript essays written in English by Japanese students of Griffis and Margaret Griffis, on numerous subjects: growing up in pre-Meiji Japan; Japanese history including contemporary free checking Gainesville ok ; customs; games; date North Dakota girl occupations and crafts; religion, folklore and superstitions.

Because the Griffis Collection is used so frequently by visiting groups, some originals and reproductions of particular Chicago messages for online dating have been separated and stored in Boxes X, Z, and the Fukui Exhibition box.

At that time, the collection had been closed to researchers due to its deteriorating condition. The collection had come to Rutgers University in a series of accessions between and many of the most valuable parts of the collection had been processed and segregated from the body of the collection, but in several stages Fontana CA ladies dating online different points in the collection's history.

Research and arrangement of early accessions had been done by Frederick Welden notably on the Brunton Manuscriptwith the support of the American Council for Learned Societies, in the s; and many areas of the collection of personal interest held by the family and presented to Rutgers in later accessions had been researched by Griffis's granddaughter, Katherine G.

The collection arrangement, while a fascinating object study in the complex and nuanced history of a rich manuscript collection such as this one, had become cumbersome, reflecting the various organization schemes introduced by this granny dating Queens NY, and later archivists', placed over the last remaining vestiges of Griffis's original arrangement of his papers - which clearly had itself been opportunistic and haphazard.

When the project began, the first thirty-five or forty boxes contained the catalogued "William Elliot Griffis Far East Collection," a broad mix of materials, sorted into a subject arrangement and listed by box contents. Heavily used by researchers, the Far East Collection had been instituted in the early s by Prof.

It was dating Valley AL women scams a portion of the entire collection, however, Yonkers NY ozawa dating continued to be added to, with new accessions eventually amounting to nearly manuscript boxes in all. Many boxes in the collection, containing voluminous research materials of less immediate interest primarily Griffis's America and Europe researches remained unsorted and undocumented. In preparation for the grant applications that led to the grant, a collection survey, the first to be comprehensive, was conducted in by Ruth Simmons and Project Archivist Wendell Piez.

While the Burks-Cooperman arrangement was more than adequate for the purposes of researchers at that time, it was not all-inclusive, and although most important materials were accessible, documentation was not sufficient to prevent the necessity of researchers' combing through materials in an attempt to locate specific items. This practice was having a deleterious effect on many of these fragile, acidic materials. The Title II-C Online dating NJ guys, which supported the employment of a Project Hook up in Canton and the application of electronic text technologies for producing and searching finding aids, enabled comprehensive processing of the collection at a level hitherto impossible in the case of many series, at the item level.

While this rearrangement ran the risk of obscuring Griffis's own arrangement even further than it had already been, it was judged to be necessary to address preservation concerns. Issues of original order are addressed, to some extent, in Series Descriptions and in any case the researcher can refer to the survey to discern the collection arrangement when this project began.

Although the full two-year Title II-C Griffis Project had to be curtailed to one year due to the termination of the Yonkers NY ozawa dating program inthese objectives of arrangement and description have been largely achieved. The current group and series arrangement was decided, all boxes systematically reviewed, and Japan and Far East-related materials removed to this arrangement.

The project was reduced in size and scope by relegating, again, the America-Europe boxes to a less highly processed group. Full listings were created in the process of sorting and rehousing. They are divided into four groups. The main group, William Elliot Griffis materials, comprises the greatest bulk of the collection: it contains Griffis's own writings as they survive in print blind date Phoenix Arizona manuscript with the exception of West Virginia online dating profile bound volumes catalogued in the X-GRIF section of the Rare Books Collection, which fell outside the purview of this projectnotebooks, diaries, research notes, as well as extensive materials collected by him in the course of his researches or as memorabilia.

Group II, Margaret Clark Griffis Materials, contains the extant diaries of Griffis's sister, ificant because of her work in the earliest period of the dating a Nebraska athlete education of Japanese women a copy of her Native Trenton woman dating contract also appears in the group.

Group IV is a highly important group: it contains manuscript materials collected by Griffis, not as part of his own researches some materials of this kind appear in Group Ibut rather in the course of his work as an editor or intermediary. The Richard Henry Brunton manuscript appears in this series, as do ificant works such as memoirs and journals by missionaries James Ballagh and Samuel Robbins Brown; manuscripts in English by Japanese literary figures; scrapbooks on Polar Exploration by Captain Silas Bent a member of the Perry Expedition to Japan of ; and others.

Also held in the Griffis Collection, but not strictly belonging to it, are materials relegated to the category Griffis-Related Materials. This is a very open category, including materials routinely useful to new researchers such as Griffis Collection-related materials from the University Archivesplus those materials stemming from researchers' work on the collection which were actually sorted from the collection in the process of arrangement.

A larger quantity of such material, of minimal value to present researchers, remains undescribed.

A survey of these boxes, updated from the Collection Survey, is available to researchers for consultation as an appendix to this Finding Aid.
