Arrangement

In original order. According to the 1989 finding aid, "The order of the collection follows that established by Mr. Paulus and used in the labelling of his collection. The letters rather than indicating any specific classification come from Mr. Paulus's shelf locations in a large double music cabinet he had constructed for the purpose of housing his collection."
