Arrangement of the Collection

The collection itself is not arranged in any particular order. The finding aid is arranged alphabetically, with cross-references; every attempt has been made to note and reference related material, but the researcher would be wise to check under variant names of people and/or organizations as well as under their acronyms to ensure finding all relevant material.

A box listing, without cross-references, is also provided at the end of this finding aid.
