Processing Information

As noted on the collection inventory some volume numbers do not follow numerical order, but occasionally repeat numbers already used. All Shorthorns were listed in chronological order despite volume numbering. Many volumes are incomplete and some volumes are missing. Several are oversize volumes which are wrapped individually and stored on the oversize shelf. Smaller volumes were placed in manuscript boxes.

For a comprehensive history of the Shorthorn see: "The Shorthorn: 1919-1969 A History of a Student Newspaper" by Kenneth L. Whitt (Submitted to the faculty of the Graduate School of East Texas State University in partial fulfillment for the degree of Master of Science, January, 1970).
