ii Student Index Cards, 1949-1979
Scope and Content Note:

These materials are index cards of recorded folklores which were collected to satisfy the requirements of courses taught by William Hugh Jansen. The bulk of the materials are from his time as a faculty member in the English Department but some of the materials were produced during his time as a doctoral student at Indiana University. These names associated with these index cards can be found in an older collection inventory in the collection file. If there is no note associated with a box it means that it is unclear where that set of index cards fit within the old inventory.
