Filed General Files

Identifier: Sub_sub_Series 1
The "General Files" sub-series may best be described as Father Ong's true subject files. Among other categories, Father Ong filed numerous items under the following headings: colleges or universities, professional organizations, scholarly journals, professional awards, and personal names. Of particular interest to scholars will be the items filed beginning with the "English" heading which include notes and other materials related to college/university courses which Father Ong both took and taught.

The "General Files" and "Correspondence" sub-series are both sub-divided into two sub-sub-series, those documents already filed by Ong (the "Filed" sub-sub-series) and those found loose in Father Ong's room and arranged wholly by archivists (the "Unfiled" sub-sub-series). As Father Ong's health declined over the last few years of his life, he was unable to file away any newly received material into his already established categories and organization. By far, the largest and most important sub-sub-series in both the "General Files" and "Correspondence" categories is the "Filed" sub-sub-series. Arrangement in these two sub-sub-series is generally alphabetical.
