Custodial History

The series was reconstituted by Archives staff in April 1998 from 17 volumes which were originally part of old collection -94, received from the State Library in 1978. In 1983, volumes from that old collection were arranged into three series (A4002, B0255, and B0265) but never accessioned. The latter two series are now withdrawn: series B0255 forms volumes 10-13 of A4002; series B0265 forms volume 17 of A4002.
