Tanner Potts is a senior at the University of the South and is double majoring in History and American Studies. Tanner will be working in Special Collections and University Archives over an eight week period this summer.
Tanner’s first project will be to process the Donald G. Ingalls Collection. Ingalls was a prolific film and television writer and producer with over 35 years of experience. During his Hollywood career, he wrote for many shows including Have Gun, Will Travel, Bonanza, The Big Valley, The Virginian, Gunsmoke, Star Trek, and Fantasy Island, among others. He also wrote for the feature film, Airport 1975.
The collection consists mostly of scripts from the shows that Ingalls worked on. The project includes arranging and describing materials, writing a finding aid, and adding descriptive information to Archivists’ Toolkit. The finding aid will be published on the Online Archive of California when Tanner is done.
