In 1998, archivist Frances O'Donnell appraised the collection and
then devised an organizational scheme for it, based on standard
archival principles and current theory and practice within the
congressional archives field. The boxes were already organized
according to general categories suggested by Senate archivist Karen
Paul in the1992 editions of The Documentation of Congress, and
Records Management Handbook for U.S. Senators and Their Archival
Repositories. These two books provided guidelines for the further
processing of the collection.
