Custodial History

The series was reconstituted by Archives staff in April 1998 from 17 volumes originally part of old collection -94, received from the State Library in 1978. In 1983, volumes from that old collection were arranged into 6 series (A4003, B0257, B0258, B0260, B0262, and B0266) but not formally accessioned. The latter five series are now defunct, and those volumes form a part of series A4003.
