Arrangement

This collection is arranged first by type of material and then chronologically. The four series are: I. Correspondence and Documents, II. Clippings, III. Photographs, and IV. Newspapers. Within each series, material is arranged in chronological order.

Numerous enclosures, such as protocols and copies of original clippings, are found with the correspondence in Series I. The clippings which were enclosed in the letters in Series I. have been removed to Series II., but preservation photocopies of these clippings have been made and placed with the letters.
