Processing Information

The original pressure bindings were removed from the scrapbooks in Series 2 during processing and the contents re-housed; photocopies were made of Scrapbooks 1 and 39 (Freis's retirement) prior to disbinding to preserve the original context. Photocopies on acid-free paper have replaced the original newspaper clippings. An investigator's brochure from Series 5 was removed from its 3-ring binder and the contents re-housed.
