Hello Erin, thanks for your observations about the undated letter in the Mary Church Terrell papers. Because the author of the letter didn’t supply a year, our archivists filed it under “undated.” Our collections contain many letters that could probably be dated through internal evidence. Researchers are able to make countless connections between documents, based on their readings of the letters and their own historical knowledge. We generally don’t make changes to the arrangement of collections as a result of these discoveries, in order to preserve the original order.
