The correspondence within each sub-series is not separated into the typical incoming and outgoing categories as there is usually a carbon copy of an outgoing reply to an incoming letter. The letters and their replies take on the semblance of an ongoing conversation, an unusual archival occurrence. The correspondence is arranged topically, as in the Edwin A. Link Collection, and then in chronological order.
For the General Correspondence sub-series, the correspondence is arranged in alphabetical order by author.
