Appraisal, destruction and scheduling


System of arrangement

Arranged by eisteddfod, in chronological order. Because events and projects often took more than a year to plan, and because the planning for each was done concurrently, some papers relating to a particular eisteddfod may appear in the files for adjacent years, while a file for a particular eisteddfod may contain papers relating in part to other eisteddfodau.
