Scope and content

Series is comprised of materials documenting Sharron J. Simpson’s efforts to collect external information about various aspects of her family history centering mainly on the history of S.M.S. Ltd., but not including research particular to the Simpson Covenant, which is kept separate.
In addition to the collection of published materials (predominantly newspapers) the series also includes recorded oral histories and select transcripts.

Minimal physical reordering has taken place in relation to this series since the aggregation arrived essentially as a linear suite of records. Where files existed they have not been broken up nor arranged, although the sequence of files may have been manipulated.
