In 2023, the Tracy Stallings papers were weeded to discard materials that did not warrant retention. In POL-0019, 1.68 linear feet of materials were discarded. (The previous linear footage was 56.99.) This collection now consists of 127 boxes, 2 OV items, and 1 OV folder. The boxes were numbered 1-131, but now are 1-127.
