Custodial History note

D. Clayton Bishop lent his Ivan J. Barrett recordings (reel-to-reel, audiocassette, microcassette) to BYU in November 1999. 20th Century Western & Mormon Manuscripts arranged for BYU Information Technology Services to make audiocassette copies. A small number of microcassettes (probably fewer than twenty) was not copied due to time and resource constraints. One videocassette copy was also made. Original recordings were returned to Clayton Bishop in two installments in late 2000 and early 2001.
