CommentThe information listed from this repository has been extracted from lists available in the archive. These lists were compiled by Donal Moore, City Archivist, and library staff, and we are grateful for their assistance. Where partial or no lists were available, staff of the Women's History Project constructed an outline list. Due to time constraints, not all items in this repository were examined individually.
