Finding Aids are descriptive tools that Cranbrook Archives creates to describe and provide access to the contents of manuscript collections or institutional records. Manuscript material created or assembled by individuals or families are referred to as "Papers," for example, the George Gough Booth Papers. The materials generated by Cranbrook institutions, departments, and auxiliary organizations are referred to as "Records,” for example the Cranbrook Architectural Office Records. Finding Aids are available for all collections that have been processed. If you are interested in an unprocessed collection, please contact one of the staff archivists for assistance.
The collections with Finding Aids displayed in bold below contain a hypertext link to a searchable PDF document. Unprocessed collections display in plain text.
