The Veterans Curation Program utilizes the standard archival practice of unique naming of collections. The purpose of this practice is to avoid redundant and confusing collection names commonly found with archaeological investigations. Therefore, this collection is referred to as “Tyrone Mims Arbitrary (1Br?) 1988.” This name is consistent throughout the finding aid, the file folders, and the box labels. The extent of this collection is two-tenths (0.2) of a linear inch.

The artifact box was labeled with two small adhesive labels on one of which “USACE/A88-29” was hand-written and a stamped “0385” was on the other. It is unclear what “0385” refers to, although it is possible that this was the Columbus Museum of Arts and Crafts box number. An inventory of the box’s contents, prepared by Brockington and Associates in 1998, was also included. It contained only the site number “1BR?” and that the contents of the box are “A88.29.”

The documents were copied onto acid free paper. An archives collection was created for these copied documents. The original inventory documents were stored in re-sealable, 4-mil polyethylene bags and remain with the artifact collection.
