Scope and Contents
The collection was acquired in 1967, but unfortunately the original sequence of the compilation has been obscured by the poor condition of the set. Consequently, the volumes have been rearranged in chronological order with correspondence volumes followed by the documents. The majority of volumes are indexed and are noted in the inventory.
