The materials are arranged in chronological order, as created by the donor. During processing the materials for each Forum meeting were rehoused from boxes (one box per Forum meeting) to acid-free folders. In some cases cassette tape recordings were retained at the folder level. Boxes 1-2 contain these folders in chronological order. Video cassettes were not boxed by the creator in any order; they have been retained in boxes 3-4.
