Sub-Section D.7: Periodicals, Journals, Pamphlets used by Merton (some with marginalia)

This section originally included periodicals used by Merton. It was additionally expanded to include extra copies of periodicals and journals containing Merton's essays by or about Merton. Some of the essays contain marginal notes or other annotations. (See also Sub-Section B.5, Books with Merton's Marginalia.) Copies of articles by Merton are first kept with Sub-Section D.1 by article title. Periodicals containing articles about Merton through the present have been integrated into Sub-Section D.4. There are two finding aids available: one with the articles, some with Merton's marginal notes and underlining; and one with a listing of extra copies of periodicals and journals with articles by or about Merton.

Folders are arranged alphabetically by series. Series names start with author's last name or title of journal in absence of a single author.
