    Processing Information

    Collection is minimally processed and arrangement is as received. Access is via a flat container listing that was adapted from a preliminary listing (possibly donor-created) received with the collection. Some notes in the container listing were provided by the accessioning archivist. Staff kept most of the original folders and labels; folders that were in bad shape were replaced and unfoldered materials were foldered. Staff clarified or re-labeled existing labels when necessary.
