General Administrative and Office Files

Series consists of the main administrative files of the Society from about 1932 to 1973. During this period, a central office filing system was in place where each file category was assigned a unique alpha-numeric code. The alphabetic code was used to represent the broad category or subject area while the numeric code represented a division of the main category.

Researchers should be aware that the files are not arranged according to strict chronological and alphabetical order within or between subseries, and therefore the entire file list for the subseries below should be reviewed to determine the existence of all files on a particular subject.

Client Case Files

Series consists of client case files. Each case file contains personal information about individual clients, as well as a detailed log of the Society's involvement with the client, such as conversations and settings of interviews, analysis, notes, significant facts and/or statements made during the interview. Correspondence with various organizations are also included in the file folder. The arrangement of the files is in a rough alphabetical order.

In the case of some clients, file folders were not created. Instead, loose documents, usually comprising a 'Face Sheet' and attached sheets providing details of the Society's involvement with the client have been stapled together. These loose documents are clustered in groups and inter filed with foldered case files, arranged in their own rough alphabetical order.

A separate grouping of client case files have been labeled "Miscellaneous" and are broken down in alphabetical order. These files have been kept separate from other client case files.

In view of the rough alphabetical order of the client case files and the separate grouping of miscellaneous files, it will be necessary for researchers interested in a particular individual to review a number of different boxes in order to determine the existence of a particular file.
