Processing information:

The original filing order of this collection has been retained as received from the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS). An alternate arrangement might have existed prior to receipt. The materials listed in this inventory are described on the box level. Yount wrote information on many of his folders, and the original folders have therefore been retained inside the new folders. Yount titled his folders both on the folder tabs and on the folder bottoms. These titles have been retained. In cases where the tab title and the bottom title do not match, both titles have been retained, with the bottom title in parenthesis below the tab title. Any words enclosed in brackets have been supplied by the processing archivist.
