SPTL2: GENERAL CORRESPONDENCE FILES, 1908-1950

Extent and form: 3 boxes

Scope and content: this series comprises general correspondence on various matters including meetings, subscriptions and membership.

Arrangement: alphabetical within covering dates.  The original numbering system (SPTL Correspondence Files 1-44) has been retained.

Appraisal, destruction and scheduling information: the files were weeded in 1937 and again in 1950 and a large quantity of letters was destroyed; where this occurred the original notes on the old folders (now destroyed) are quoted in the list below.  A small amount of destruction was undertaken in 1995 of ephemeral material in files which had missed the earlier weeding (nos. 40-44).

Access: open
