The arrangement of files in boxes 039 to 056 of this series reflects the order originally imposed by Professor Rapoport. He assigned a number to most of these works and arranged them in numerical order (gaps exist in the numbering system). File list is based on his bibliography which was provided to the University Archives in electronic form.
