Box Note

The material in OA 13084 appears to be the combined work product of Thomas Gibson, Joseph Rodota, Jerome Becker, and Jane Lankering.  Due to the small size of the office, it is likely that combined filing was done for general research information on alphabetical topics.  This is likely to apply to other boxes in this collection and the Office of Public Affairs collection.  We will do proper cross-references at the time of processing.
