    Biography/Administrative History

    The container list is arranged by repository file number. MSS-1 through MSS-524 were originally organized and entered as bibliographic records in OCLC. The following numbered files are not found, possibly due to mis-numbering: MSS-18, MSS-36, MSS-38, MSS-162, MSS-223, MSS-360, MSS-361, MSS-444, MSS-445, MSS-458, MSS-525, and MSS-526. Additional items have been added to the collection, however, these items do not have bibliographic records in OCLC. The additional items begin with MSS-527 and include oversize items (i.e. MSS-1ov, MSS-2ov, etc.). Items will continue to be added to the collection as deemed appropriate.
