Trust Territory Administrative Files

The documents in this online collection derive from three separate 7.5- by 9.5-inch filing drawers. The online collection is arranged by drawer, using the original, handwritten label affixed to each drawer as the sub-community name. (Drawer No. 3 in its physical form was not labelled.) A file numbering system was added at the time of the online collection's creation, with the first item in drawer No. 1 given the number 0001 and all following items numbered sequentially, 0002, 0003 and etc.
