This collection is contained in one bound scrapbook dating from 1943-1967. The first 35 pages of the scrapbook were separated from the large book because of the deteriorated condition of the cellophane like covering of the pages. This covering was removed and acid free paper was interleaved between the pages. These pages can be found in a folder kept with the rest of the scrapbook. The remainder of the pages (pages 35-97) were retained in the bound scrapbook. The pages were interleaved with buffered tissue paper.
