Series 8
Born digital materials, 1991-2003
Box BD1

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of 30 3.5" floppy disks containing drafts of Ranson's plays, correspondence, and photographs. Files range from 1991 to 2003.

Restrictions on Access

Special restrictions apply: Access to processed born digital materials is only available in the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (the Rose Library). Use of the original digital media is restricted.

Processing Note

Forensic disk images were created from the 3.5” floppy disks using Kryoflux. Individual files were extracted using FTK Imager and scanned for viruses using McAfee’s anti-virus software; none were found. Duplicate files have been removed, and files were scanned for personally identifiable information; none were found. Text-based files were migrated to PDF using Adobe Acrobat and image files were migrated to JPG using Microsoft Paint.

Access copies have been organized into three series: 1) Personal Correspondence; 2) Photographs; and 3) Writings. File names have been maintained.
