Processing Information

These papers have been re-boxed in lignin-free letter size boxes, and numbered 1-9. They remain loosely in their original order. This collection is partially processed in that all staples and paper clips still need to be removed and fragile paper preserved. Oversized materials need to be properly stored in a larger box.
