Harvard Yenching Library Korean Section Update-BERTSCH PAPERS

The Bertsch papers were donated by the family through the Korea Institute and transferred to the Library as part of the Harvard-Yenching Library holdings. The Library organized the papers, which are stored in 13 boxes, and created a detailed finding aid at the same time with the Korea Institute’s student supports. The Bertsch papers will be kept as part of the Hausman Archive, but also have a separate HOLLIS record as well. All boxes of the Bertsch papers will be stored in the Harvard Depository, and the finding aid will be accessible through HOLLIS/HOLLIS Classic.
