Immediate Source of Acquisition

Materials from this collection are from several different sources. Some are from files maintained by the Visitor's Office, some are from files maintained by the Archives, and some have been collected and sent to the Archives from Brother Michael Meister, Director of the Joseph Alemany Community in Moraga, California.


No major accruals are anticipated, but materials on the item level may be added occasionally.

Processing Information

The San Francisco District Archives of the De La Salle Christian Brothers maintains files on living Brothers and Novices of the District. Materials in these files are accrued over time, with many Brothers sending items to the District Archives that they wished to have as part of their file. When a Brother or Novice left the order or died, their file was then processed into the repository. At the time of processing, Brother Clarence's personnel file maintained by the District Archives was combined with the files on individual Brothers kept by the Visitor's office and files which were sent to the Archives by Brother Clarence and others.
