Processing Information

This collection was processed in August 2013. The original order of the files was not clearly defined so the Archivist created Series to aid access to the materials, and then organized individual folders and files in chronological order within each series when necessary. If chronological order could not be determined files were kept in original order. Misfiled and loose items were returned to their logical place within the collection. Preservation measures included removing some metal fasteners, plastic GBC binders and re-housing the collection in acid-free folders and boxes. Acidic materials such as notebook paper were buffered with acid-free paper. Routine business records such as travel vouchers and duplications of reports and newsletters and other records with sensitive information, such as social security numbers, were weeded from the collection.
