Data Summary


This zip file contains 340 plain text files, which were converted to plain text from PDF access copies of born-digital materials in the Turner Cassity Papers (Mss 642, in the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library.

Born digital materials in the Turner Cassity Papers were processed by Dorothy Waugh, March 2014. The born digital materials were taken from Turner Cassity’s computer, a Compaq Presario SR1222NX. A logical image of Cassity’s files was created using FTK Imager imaging software. A master copy of this image was ingested into a Fedora instance at Emory University for long-term preservation. Individual files were extracted from the disk image using FTK Imager and were scanned for viruses using McAfee’s anti-virus software. Following this, the extracted files—which consisted primarily of Microsoft Works files—were migrated to PDF using File Conversion Wizard for Word and Excel and Adobe Acrobat Pro. The files included here were converted to plain text from the PDF access copies by Anne Donlon in 2015 in Atlanta, GA. File rootnames remain as Cassity named them on his computer.
