Scope and content
Correspondence files of Harold D. Bateman, City Comptroller and Assessor. The letters relate to City of Belleville expenditures, property assessments, office supplies, and administrative concerns.
There are two series: the first (files 1-25) was held in letter-sized files carrying letters of the alphabet, with correspondence usually filed under the letter of the surname of the correspondent. However, files I, J, K, L, M, Mc, P and Q hold municipal administration publications, rather than correspondence, and the correspondence for those letters was filed in file 'X,Y,Z'.
The second series (26-59) was housed in legal-sized files, usually with filenames although some were unnamed.
