Custodial History

These materials were part of a donation made in 1980 by Evelyn's nieces, Marjorie Cargill Petri and Louise Cargill, who were the daughters of Evelyn's brother, J. Ralston Cargill. They were initially processed as part of that donation (MC 77), but were re-processed at some point to stand alone as the Evelyn Cargill Gilbert Poetry Collection.
