Scope and Contents note
The series titled 'B' at the time of transfer originally included both files containing public relations material (newsclippings and photographs etc.) about artists which appeared to have been gathered by or sent to NZSAC, and box files containing the records of various tours, events, performances, etc. actually organised by NZSAC. It has been described as two series - 'Artists-Individual Acts' for the box files or events organised by NZSAC, and 'PR Files' subdivided by the type of performance, for files which appeared to contain purely public relations material.
This 'PR Files' subseries contains envelopes arranged by type of performance (Drama, Dance, etc.) and within that by alphabetical name of act.
There is some crossover with events which were given larger box files and have been described as part of 'Artists - Individual Acts', although it is not yet clear whether information was consistently duplicated. Files by event type have been described as separate record subseries and envelopes will be described as items within these when resources permit.
Conditions Governing Access note
