Arrangement

Originally the slides were organized, or in the process of being organized, by Audrey Hawthorn, before they were donated to the archives. However, slides appear to have been reorganized and rehoused by various staff members over several years according to which items seemed to be related thematically. Elizabeth Johnson, former MOA curator and librarian/archivist, may also have had a hand in organizing the slides.

The current arrangement is based on the physical order of the items. As of 2019-12-13, they are arranged in a series of five binders. Each binder is filled with sheets of slides. Each sheet is numbered sequentially; beginning from 1 with each binder. Sheets are referred to as files in this finding aid. These files are roughly unified thematically but some items are out of place and some files have separate themes. It may be easier to navigate the items in this file via subject terms, especially exhibition subject terms.
