    Processing Information

    The Langton Papers were initially processed in 1993; the materials were re-foldered and a finding aid with folder-level list was prepared. Additional processing was conducted in 2010; at that time the papers were arranged in series, the small 1996 addition was incorporated, and the finding aid was significantly revised and expanded.

    Acquisition Information

    The papers were donated to the Archives in 1979 by Langton's daughter, Marie Langton Swancutt. Additional materials, including 3-dimensional artifacts, were donated to the Horner Museum in 1979 by Swancutt; a small number of documentary items from that donation were subsequently transferred to the OSU Archives in 1996.
