Arrangement of Series I

Series I consists of records of the New York SANE Council and of local chapters in the New York area. The bulk of this material came to SCPC in two accessions in November 1979. There was no discernible order to the files. The arrangement which evolved during processing is basically chronological. Certain types of material (e.g., minutes, newsletters, records pertaining to Stars for SANE) have been pulled together, then arranged chronologically. Within the overall chronology are administrative files for several different time periods. These were arranged either alphabetically or chronologically depending on what seemed to work best for that group of material. To reduce duplication, printed, mimeographed and photocopied items from National SANE have been removed from the files of New York SANE. Such items will be found in Series A and in Series G.
