Arrangement of the Papers

This collection appears to have been left in order in which it arrived in Archives & Special Collections. Hence, the essays from Box 1 to the first half of Box 7 are arranged alphabetically, by author. I have designated this group of essays as Series 1. The essays in the second half of Box 7 to Box 9 are arranged in no apparent order. Therefore, I have designated them Series 2.
