    In the summer of 2018, the collection was reprocessed and materials related to Araki Sadao, Irie Toshio, Paul Goforth, Hamada Tokkai (Norimi), Hiranuma Kiichiro, Shinoda Jisaku, and Yano Toyotaro (Toyojiro) were separated into separate archival collections to help researchers find materials more efficiently. For the remainder of the materials, the original organization was maintained, and more detailed description was added.
