Notes

Title based on the creator of the fonds.

Due to the age, condition and brittle nature of the papers in the scrapbook, researchers are required to use extreme care while using it. Photocopying is not recommended.

Some of the pages have fallen out of the scrapbook due to aged glue; these items have been placed in a separate folder.
