Abstract: The collaboratively amassed ephemera of the villages of the Ardens include correspondence, newspaper clippings concerning the villages and their events, theatre media, local periodicals and other publications, published and unpublished writings of resident authors, and personal files of residents.
Note: Throughout the collection and finding aid, the village of Ardencroft may be referred to as Arden Croft. This is to comply with the Library of Congress subject heading authorities, but it always refers to the village founded in 1950. Similarly, the Robin Hood Theatre is occasionally listed as being located in Arden, but it is located in Ardentown.
