Most of the records are arranged alphabetically by arbitrator, and within those of a given arbitrator they are alphabetical by employer. R.W. Fleming (ILIR director 1952-1958 and Law professor 1957-65) was involved with most of the arbitrations in boxes 1-8.
The arbitrator of the dispute to which an item pertains appears in the finding aid as the creator of that item.
