System of arrangement


  • MsC 31 Moore filed correspondence for his major works by published title and this arrangement ahs essentially been maintained although a general correspondence sub-series has been created from Moore's subject files for letters that do not deal with specific titles.
  • MsC 49 correspondence for each title is further divided by personal and corporate name arranged alphabetically to create more manageable files and provide fuller description for the correspondence. Reader-related material (i.e., fan mail) for each title is filed under Brian Moore.
