The card shows the subject heading, brief description of the article and the citation (month, day, year, page and column). Accompanying photographs are noted. Some of the early entries are still in handwritten form, but will eventually be typed.
SIZE OF INDEX:  The total number of entries is estimated at 50,000. About 1800 new entries are added each year.
