Arrangement

Original order of files was kept where possible. Some accessions arrived in boxes with no discernible order, these items were organized in a way that was seen as similar to how earlier accessions had been arranged by the creator. Correspondence was put alphabetically, mixed correspondence chronologically. Accessions were combined.
