  • General note

    The contents of A 19 were removed from a previous binding in 1983, deacidified, and rebound. The spine title (of the previous binding) was "Autographs" and this was also embossed on the front cover. The volume was repaged in 1983 (these are the numbers with circles). Pages with these numbers, followed by an alphabetical suffix, were attached to the page with the same number without the suffix, for example p.37A was attached to p.37. The photographs were transferred to the Pictures Collection.
    "D.S. Mitchell" signature appears on front cover of A19.
    Microfilm copies available at CY 2823, frames 114-243 (A 19); CY 810, frames 808-1004 (A 26)
