This collection received a medium level of processing in 2009. Processing included removing items from plastic enclosures, rehousing items in acid-free folders and boxes, organizing material into groups according to geographical location, and then organizing material within geographical groupings alphabetically by business name based on the letterhead. Information included in the Description of Papers note and Collection Contents section is drawn from information supplied with the collection and from an initial survey of the contents. Folder titles were largely supplied by staff during processing.
