Associate Chair of the UMBC Psychology Department, and Associate Dean in the College

retired from UMBC in 2011.
Organized in two series: Series I. Judaic Studies, 1973-2012. Series II. Jewish Campus
All the materials were donated by Jonathan Finkelstein in August 2012. The donation,
which was accessioned as UARC 2012-010, included 2.5 boxes. One box of records was
removed from this collection to be included in Collection 53, Dean of the College
Arts and Sciences records.
The Jonathan Finkelstein papers were processed by graduate assistant Johanna Schein
under the supervision of the Special Collections Archivist Lindsey Loeper. The records
were largely unorganized when received. With the assistance of the donor, the papers
were sorted by subject and new folder titles were created. Folders were then separated
into two series, and arranged alphabetically within each series. A handful of records
were already in folders when received; in those instances, the original folder title
retained. For preservation purposes, original copies of newspaper and journal
advertisements were copied, and the original clippings and journals were removed.
