General Files date from 1890-1983 and includes a small remnant of the Union's voluminous correspondence (1900-ca. 1959). Certain types of correspondence, such as room reservations, the desk manager's lost and found, Union membership dues and pins, ticket requests, and uncollectable checks were discarded. Also found in the General Files is a quantity of miscellaneous material. Although poorly described, the material can be of great interest. Included is correspondence with several university presidents as well as important individuals in the founding of the Union.
