Immediate Source of Acquisition
Kansas Republican Party, 1982
This collection was reboxed from shipping boxes into cubic foot boxes, with the result that the original contents did not always fit into one cubic foot box. When this was the case, A, B, and very occasionally C boxes were created for a single box number to maintain the accuracy of the original inventory list. On attached Pdf listing, where "A/B" follows box number, box A and B must be paged if all of original box contents are to be represented.
Previously shelved at RH MS 351.
