Scope and Content Note

This Collection has three levels of arrangement. These levels are Record Group (Name of the collection ) Series and Folder level. Some of the series could not be further subdivided into sub series. So we arranged folders alphabetically but we had to indicate the Subdivisions in those series that have some subdivisions such as Correspondence and discussion documents.

The collection has about 16 boxes. ANC department of education consists of four series namely : correspondence, discussion documents, Minutes and Statement and Reports.

Series I Correspondence (4 boxes ) : The series consists of letters and memoranda from various department of the ANC, genera correspondence, Organisation and universities.


Series II Discussion documents (8 boxes): The series is subdivided into conferences, general discussion documents, organisations, policy, proposal and reconstruction and development programme.


Series III Minutes and Statements (2 Boxes) Due to insufficient folders to make an individual series (minutes and statements were incorporated to make one series but each has its own box) both are on various topics.

Series IV Reports (2 boxes) : Reports on various topics.
