Arrangement of Series M

The records of the Arms Control Computer Network came to the Peace Collection in one accession. Board minutes and general information about ACCN are at the beginning of the Series. Files of each coordinator are kept together, as are financial records and material relating to the Arms Control Legislative Alerts sent in 1985-1986. Within each of these groupings, files are in rough chronological order. A section of files on the participating organizations is in alphabetical order.
