Appraisal, destruction and scheduling


System of arrangement

The files are arranged by subject headings in the original order in which they were uncovered. No attempt has been made to reconstruct their original working order, though several systems of annotation may operate as a guide to how they were ordered and used. Researchers may want to refer to the secondary titles of the files to reconstruct these previous arrangement notes.
