General note

History of this Series:

An archives assistant went through the audio recordings and divided them into either institutional records (MOA) or private/external records (MAN, for manuscript); these became known as the MOA Series and the MAN Series (although they are actually subseries under the Series 1: Audio). Within the MOA/MAN series, the records were further arranged into subject categories. Once the audio recordings were assigned a MOA/MAN series, a new unique-sequential identifier was assigned to each record. The unique-sequential identifiers began with either MOA or MAN followed by a numeric value (e.g. MOA 10, MAN 25, etc.).

At first, records that were created in one recording session (e.g. three audio cassette tapes captured in one interview) were assigned separate numeric identifiers. Later on at an unknown point in time, records that were created in one recording session were assigned one numeric identifier and an alpha character (e.g. a, b, c, etc.) was affixed to the end to create a unique-sequential identifier (e.g. MOA 1a, MOA 1b, etc.).
