Language of Materials

From the Collection: English


Originally housed in a series of brown folders with captions on the tabs. The photographs have been placed into new folders that preserve the original captions. The folder arrangement in the original boxes appeared to be chaotic; but the folders have been re-arranged according to the scheme found inserted between two of the original folders. (Not all of the items in this arrangement scheme have corresponding folders.) The contents of one unlabeled folder do not match any of the categories in the arrangement scheme. The contents of individual folders do not always match the folder captions.

Materials of a similar date and appearance have been added from a box containing unsorted photographs


Many of these photographs were published in house organs such as the Trib or Little trib
