MS 29 Unger-Bassler Frakturschriften Collection
The following is a listing of "Fraktur" (hand-drawn and printed geburts und taufschein, haus segen, family registers and confirmation certificates; and vorschrift, bucherzeichens and drawings / sketches) located in the Archives and Special Collections Department of the Shadek-Fackenthal Library. The core of this collection is from the Unger-Bassler collection of Pennsylvania German materials acquired in the early 1950s. The inventory is in alpha-numeric order derived from notations located on the verso of the items. It is conjectured that these numbers were assigned during the original processing the Unger-Bassler materials in the early 1950's. However, no key to the alpha-numeric designations or other listings have been located. Unnumbered items may or may not be a part of the original Unger-Bassler collection, as materials most likely have been added to the collection since the 1950s. In the past, several museum-quality items from this collection have been transferred to the care of the College's Phillips Museum of Art for public display. The collection was digitized in 2007.
