In the holdings of the Oberlin College Archives are 376 manuscript
groups of papers of individuals, families, and a few personal
collections. For purposes of intellectual control, these collections
are classified under record group number 30, Other Individuals.
Each collection carries its own identification number, in consecutive
fashion, under the number of 30. The total volume stands at 1,502
feet, or nineteen percent of the total volume of the holdings of
the Oberlin College Archives. The bulk is in the papers of Charles
A. Mosher, Don J. Pease, and Carl T. Rowan. Thirty-one percent
of the manuscript groups/collections are reported on the Oberlin
(O.B.I.S.) and on the online national bibliographical utilities
as well. About eighty percent of the finding
guides for the manuscript groups/collections
appear on the College Archives website.
