Historical Note

When the collection was donated to U.S.U., approximately two-thirds of it had been given a filing order by the originators, while one-third was held loosely in boxes. The organized material had been placed alphabetically in order in file folders. Though there were inconsistencies in this filing order, it was decided to retain it so as to avoid altering an order that might be very meaningful. The unprocessed portion of the collection has been organized as closely as possible to this original order. A detailed register of the collection has been produced to aid the researcher in locating materials.
