A history of the VICC by retired Radford History Professor Harold W. Mann is available on the RU Digital Collections website: https://monk.radford.edu/records/?search=&sort=_score&perpage=10&page=1&&refine[Categories][]=Appalachian+Collections%24%24%24Virginia+Iron%2C+Coal%2C+and+Coke+Collection&r&&page=1&refine[Creator][]=Dr.+Harold+W.+Mann

VICC went through several owners after the Second World War, and in 1984 then-owner ANR Coal Company of Roanoke, Virginia, donated the iron and land records to Radford University.

Arrangemnet Note

NOTE: The VICC Collection is being reprocessed to better preserve, protect, and describe the materials in the collection. As of January 2013, the collection has been reprocessed through box 15.

As the materials were reprocessed and placed in new folders, they have been expanded and relaxed, and consequently now take up more room. Some overlap has occurred, and this is now labeled "old" and "new" boxes when the box numbers from the new and old box labelling overlap.

The VICC Collection was originally housed in expanding legal manilla folders that were labeled "Folder 1," "Folder 2," etc. These folders typically contain documents relating to a specific topic, location, set of legal documents, etc. The materials in these folders have been removed and placed in archival file folders.

The labels reflect the original manilla folders ("Folder 1") while the individual items in them are in the original order and are in files. Consequently Box 1, Folder 1, File 3 contains the third item originally found in the first folder in the collection,which is now housed in Box 1.
