Since this collection was minimally processed some material may be restricted.
The subject files are arranged in rough alphabetical order.

Please see the Conditions Governing Use for more information about what to do if you find confidential information.
The finding aid contains a preliminary box and folder list. When a folder had no title sometimes the processor(s) described the color of the folder or binder or wrote "blank" as the title. There are also many loose (unfoldered) items throughout the collection. These items are listed in the box and folder list with a title or description but have no folder number.
