This collections was originally arranged with company papers in 15 clamshell boxes and company ledger books stacked on the adjacent shelves. Boxes 1-15 were consolidated into banker's boxes. The original folder numbering for boxes 1-15 remains in place. Smaller ledger books that could fit in banker's boxes were removed from the shelving, foldered, and added to the banker's boxes. Eight larger ledger books are organized in three oversize boxes.
