Custodial History
The items separately catalogued as Nos. 3432-a (ARCHEO., Idaho) and 3432-b (ARCHEO., Texas) were found (January 1959) together in one envelope having the catalog No. 3423. Six photographs were with that file. Three of them clearly belong with 3432-a, and the correspondence with that file specifically refers to the enclosure of 3 photographs. The remaining three were assumed to belong to file 3423-b; however they do not seem to tally closely with the description given in the correspondence, nor does the correspondence indicate how many photographs were enclosed.
