Processing Information

EXCEPT ONE ITEM, THIS ENTIRE SERIES WAS NOT LOCATED DURING THE 2016-2020 STOCKCHECK. The catalogue content reproduced here is lifted from the legacy printed catalogue of "The Papers of Professor Sir Patrick Geddes at the Outlook Tower", (1998), the series having been catalogued 1990-1992 by E. C. I. Fortescue at the Outlook Tower on behalf of the Patrick Geddes Centre for Planning Studies. It has not been possible to establish when the series went missing. When stored at the Outlook Tower, this series was, predominantly, housed in drawer 3 of Plan-Chest 3 in the Scotland Room. All of the contents of drawer 4 have been located, (see Coll-1167/C/2) although these had only been listed (1991) but never fully catalogued prior to 2016. The catalogue descriptions are included here for information, and as a record of what was held at the Outlook Tower, and as the series may be uncovered when the remaining Patrick Geddes Centre for Planning Studies and associated records are catalogued in the future.
