Scope and Content:
The bulk of this collection consists of printed materials, such as newspaper clippings and publications, documenting Castor’s political career.  Also accompanying the papers are numerous awards and plaques presented to Castor for her service to the citizens of Florida.  In August 2008, action was taken to re-assess and weed the plaques and awards.  Only those items that were considered relative to the history of the University of South Florida or of significance to Betty Castor’s career were retained.  A CD (compact disc) containing pictures of the plaques and trophies is included, and an itemized list has been added to Castor's donor file. Materials compromising the "Betty Castor papers" do not include her official USF presidential papers, which are a part of the University Archives and are currently (2007) in remote storage.
