Statement on Access: Collection is open for research.
Statement on Description: These materials were placed in the Continuing Higher Education and Summer Term Records (RG 179) when they were received in 1982.  In 2019, they were separated from that collection to form the J. Frank Ligon Papers.  In the early 1980s, the papers were prepared for microfilming (removed from original folders and most fasteners removed), but the microfilming was not completed.  For the preparation of this finding aid, the materials have been retained in the order established for microfilming; one folder of correspondence pertaining to scholarship donors and recipients has been weeded from the collection.
Preferred Citation: J. Frank Ligon Papers (MSS Ligon), Oregon State University Special Collections and Archives Research Center, Corvallis, Oregon.
