Arrangement

Series P: Logbooks

This series consists of material removed from a set of notebooks kept in the SANE National Office. Each notebook contained SANE publications, releases, reports, minutes, etc., arranged in chronological order. Additional copies of some items may be available elsewhere in DG 58. The notebooks toward the end of the sequence are less complete than the earlier ones.

The Logbook for 1982-1987 came to SCPC in a later accession from the earlier ones, and the nature of the material is somewhat different. Materials are filed in chronological order.
