Processing Information

The collection is partially processed. The majority of the material in the collection has been described at the folder level. However, there are small parts of the collection that only have box-level records or no description at all (see series titled "Unprocessed material"). Similar types of material may exist in both the "Case Files" and "Transcripts" series. There was never a comprehensive arrangement or categorization of the records in this finding aid.
