Immediate source of acquisition

This material was transferred to the City of Edmonton Archives between 1975 and 1998.


The material is arranged according to the filing system of the creator. Correspondence in 1973 and 1974 was arranged according to an internal filing system, the specifics of which can be found in files 385 and 386. The correspondence for 1975-1991 (on microfilm) is arranged by Uniterm. In this filing system, every piece of correspondence was given a unique number based on when it came in or went out, and the records were filed by that number. Indexes and document registers were microfilmed for 1975-1979 that may assist researchers in finding specific material.
