Donor Note

Larry James donated these


The collection was rehoused and reordered first by content: tape sets all together, individual tapes together, and then bound bulletins together. The tapes were then separated first by who taught the subject matter, all tapes that were not Larry James were grouped together and split into those before 1985 and those after 1985. Tapes belonging to Larry James were chronologically ordered, placing the dateless tapes at the end of the order. Lastly, the bound bulletins were ordered chronologically but were then sent to cataloging.
