2. ARTICLE COMMITTEE FILES

Article committees reported their recommendations to the full Commission for consideration. After studying an Article in detail the Commission adopted recommendations for revision of both the substance and language of the Article.
Article Committee files are arranged in the following order. For unique records and data refer to the more detailed description of individual Article Committee files which follow.
