35 mm color and black and white slides found in 6 metal slide boxes with identifying tabs between groups of slides. Slides were left in the order in which they were found although, in some cases, they seem to be out of order. Sometimes no slides were found for a given tab. The tab was retained even though there was no slide. No attempt was made to determine if any slides were missing from the boxes and no empty pockets were left when the slides were put into the slide pages.
