Note to the Researcher

Originally, these tapes were housed in the "Film Collection," which then was integrated into the Civil Air Transport (CAT) and Air America Association Collection, since provenance could not be established. The acknowledgement letter was discovered at a later time, thus these materials were removed from the latter to form their own collection.
