Arrangement note
No arrangement or provenance was discernable for these records when they were transferred to the National Archives. Therefore, it has been considered desirable to revert to an arrangement under subject headings because of the diversified nature and small volume of the records. Records which could not be attributed to the office which created them have been placed into this series.
