Squires, who in turn gave them to James L. Barrett and his sister, Karen Czirban. They donated the originals to the LDS Church Historical Department in 1995. James L. Barrett donated the photocopies to Brigham Young University in 1999. The LDS Church Historical Department sent a microfilm copy of the collection to BYU with a cover letter dated 8 May 1996.
