Related Archival Materials note

Some audiovisual materials of other commencement addresses exist in other places, notably CT 6-7 (1937, 1941 audios), Archives 191 (1962, 1966, 1978 audios), Archives 234 (1990 videos), Archives 286 (1987 audio), Archives 287 (1978, 1991 audios), and Archives 320 (1993, 1995-2002 videos).
