The slides in this collection were created by the Office of Communication and Media Relations. Most of the slides in the second series were contained in a Filemaker Pro database and have a unique serial number comprised of a numeric prefix representing a category followed by a five-digit unique number. Slides in the "Original" subseries were used in publications and not all of them have serial numbers. Slides contained in subseries without a numeric prefix do not have serial numbers. Many of them were loose and put into categories based on subject and date.
