État de conservation
Source immédiate d'acquisition
Donated to the archives by Elizabeth and Rhiannon Williams in 2012.
The materials came to the archives in folders and binders, or as loose documents. The records in file folders and binders were roughly organized based on function or date. The order of all the materials was retained in the archival arrangement in order to preserve any original order. For preservation purposes, all original file folders and binders were removed by the archivist and replaced with acid free folders. Groups of documents were maintained with slips of paper and any writing and inscriptions present on the original folders or binders were recorded on these slips.
