Archivist's note

old-US.NNFIT.SC. - slipcase 10 - Fall, 1915; disbound in 2012. After surveying the collection in July of 2013 (Bomey Kim) noted that contents of--US.NNFIT.SC.1.1.1-2 and--US.NNFIT.SC.1.1.3-6 (old-US.NNFIT.SC. - Slipcase 10 and old-US.NNFIT.SC. - Slipcase 11) correspond. The discrepancy in the year attribution of these two scrapbooks lead to further investigation and it appears that Autumn 1915 is correct date. (Noted 2014)
