Content and structure elements

Scope and content

This collection of reports was assembled by a staff member who worked in the department from 1949 to about 1974. Some reports were added after 1974, but that was not done as consistently as before. Thus, for the first twenty-four years, the collection should be at least virtually complete.

All of the reports are in good condition. The earliest ones were published as mimeograph copies while the later ones seem to be published as photo-offset copies.

System of arrangement

This collection has retained this arrangement, with one minor change. The reports are still arranged by year of publication but are filed alphabetically by the name of the first author. A complete index to all authors has been prepared.
