Collection Scope and Content Note
Show all series level scope and content notes
The Lynn M. Bartlett papers have been arranged into five series. The first three series were accumulated in his capacity as State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Education, and Assistant Secretary for Education within the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. The researcher should note that although these series have been designated with the title of the office that Bartlett held, these series do not include the official files from those agencies. Records for the state office will be found in the Michigan State Archives; and records for the two federal positions held either reside within the agency itself or have been transferred to the National Archives. These three series consist of personal materials, such as speeches, personal letters (e.g., letters of congratulation, and thanks yous), and other files not deemed to be part of the agency's files.
The final two series consist of Biographical/Personal and Pre-1957 Activities and papers of his wife, an East Lansing, Michigan school teacher, Josephine K. Bartlett.
