Appraisal, destruction and scheduling
System of arrangement
The papers were originally bundled in large envelopes or folders inscribed with hand-written notes labelling the contents of each bundle and the relevance of the material to the structure of Masked Eden. The documents have been rehoused but where possible the original arrangement of the bundles and the accompanying notes have been retained to provide context. The files are roughly in a chronological sequence.
