Historic Context note

This folder title is the original folder title generated by the creator of the records. It is often historically relevant to know what terminology was used by the creator of archives. For this reason SCRC staff did not remove or edit the folder title.

The SCRC recognizes that the term used in this title is identified as problematic in the resource Disability Language Style Guide maintained by the National Center on Disability and Journalism (NCDJ). Many find this term inappropriate and some consider it condescending, offensive or simply a way of avoiding talking about disability. Person with a disability” is a more neutral term than “differently-abled.” This is the terminology the SCRC staff will use when we have discretion over the descriptive language.
