Arago: Documents


Every business and government bureaucracy creates vast amounts of information about and documentation of both its routine and momentous events. Such extensive record keeping is a boon to historians in their efforts to understand an institution's development. The official documents of the postal service trace its accounting, employment, governance, operational, managerial, procedural, and reporting activities.
