The collection was packed in boxes and shipped by Center staff when the Center moved office locations in 1995. The order here
is representative of the inherent order in the Center office. The sections titled here "Early Organization Files, 1977-81"
and "Office Files,
1981-92" reflect a turning point in the history of the Center around 1981 when there was the possibility the Center might
close. The Early Organization Files are evidential of the beginnings of the Center and consolidation of its purpose and support.
The Office Files show the on-going work of the Center. The "Training Presentations Files" are the working/planning files for
training events, speeches, classes, and conference, workshop, and seminar presentations, given by Center staff nationwide.
