Series 2: CAT Tapes, 1985-2003


Scope and Contents

Series 2 contains the VHS tapes of programs, events, and activities documented by Thorpe. Many of the VHS are the master copies and are designated as such. Others are duplicates and are also designated on the VHS label.

Additionally, Thorpe used a numbering system to track the tapes as well as link them to the indexes (located in Series 1). Although the older tapes do not have this system, nearly all other tapes do. The system is broken down into the following components: (nothing listed or 2) (tape number) (index reference). For example, 2 #97 (3) pg 28-93 means the tape is a duplicate, not an original, it is tape 97, the tape is listed on index 3 on page 28 of the index. Each tape also has the run time (if available) and any additional information such as guest speakers and location.
