Language of Materials
In general, the order of the material as it existed when processing began has been maintained. The main set of records were very roughly organized by subject and year. However, this may not have been the way the records were organized by the original department. An unknown amount of work had been done on the collection before the current guide was created. The 2015 Addition to the Collection was divided in to a general subseries and a subseries for department and program files, and both were arranged alphabetically.
