Description

The material in this Series was stored by John Jenkin in filing cabinets, with labelled suspension files used for high-level subjects and manila folders within these titled at a more granular level. Many of these folders primarily contain photocopies drawn from a variety of sources, often accompanied by research notes and related correspondence. The suspension files have been discarded for preservation reasons, with the labelled tabs retained with the first item from that file. Inventory item titles have been taken from John Jenkinís own manila file titles where available, with the broader suspension file tab recorded as the title qualifier, which appears directly beneath each title.
