It was not possible to reconstruct a single original order for this fonds. It appears that the material was organized different ways at different times, and somefiles from earlier periods may have been carried over to later ones while others were not. In addition, some of the records arrived at the Archives as loose papers. The records have been artificially arranged for ease of access; the material has been organized by type/subject of records, while maintaining as much as possible of the order that was discernible.
