Scope & Content This is a collection which is not arranged particularly and could be better organized in the future. For now, our goal is to access the folder and make note of key names and events in the folder so researchers will be able to find the information they are seeking. We recommend that an inventory of the papers and other items be done at a later date. (Anne Welles)
