Microfilming of this record series appears to have taken place in 1979. Restrictions on processing time prevented Archives staff from comparing reels to the hard copy record, so the decision was made to keep both the paper, as well as existing microfilm reels. Researchers may want to consider examining both sets of records to ensure that all existing information in this series is seen.
