DescriptionBusiness papers of James Harper and Son, Slaters and Contractors, Aberdeen, including sales ledgers, day books, cash books, correspondence, invoices and papers concerning building work carried out at the University of Aberdeen.
AppraisalThis material has been appraised in line with normal procedures.
AccrualsNone expected.
ArrangementThe papers that survive are in reasonable condition but earlier record destruction meant that the archive was already uneven when taken in. It was, therefore, decided to sample the invoices and incoming letters and to destroy some of the files in these sections. Other groups were retained in their entirety. The firm has retained its post-1964 papers.
