Organization

The papers are arranged by subject document type, that is, by personal, general, local union, or company correspondence, and thereunder chronologically.
The first two folders of Box 1 contain material of a personal nature, totally unrelated to the union activities. The folders are then organized as to general correspondence, local union correspondence and records, correspondence and documents of specific companies, and miscellaneous contracts and agreements. Beginning in Box 18 are materials concerning the internal functioning of the Office and Professional Employees International Union, i.e. the Southwestern Educational Conference, convention materials, Executive Board minutes and correspondence, and miscellaneous materials. Box 21 includes newspaper clippings, photographs, and a miscellaneous file. At the end of these are the daily diaries, 1951-1973.

Processing Information

When received, the Morton Papers were arranged by subject document type, that is, by personal, general, local union, or company correspondence. Some of the photographs, pamphlets, and correspondence were loose or combined in folders. These documents were integrated into a portion of the collection which had previously been processed. The correspondence files remained intact, with only Executive Board minutes and correspondence being processed separately, thereby conforming with the previous organization. Any pictures and newspaper clippings not directly associated with the correspondence were also placed in separate files.
