Archival history

A majority of the articles are glued on scrapbook pages which were torn from an original scrapbook and stored in a file labelled "Harry 24-8-71 Paul." Several articles were not glued onto pages and were either placed between pages or at the back of the file.
The archives numbered the scrapbook pages for article identification purposes.
