Processing Information

The Time Inc. The March of Time Files were processed by Samantha Brown in 2018. The original folders were retained although some documents were transferred to archival containers in instances of overcrowding or if no original folder was present. Brown created the inventory and other descriptive notes for the record group. Series were created based on the original groups of materials. Within series, materials were arranged in their original order. If no order was present, such as with the Mel Baily Files on "Crusade in Europe", then an order was imposed.
