    SUBJECT TRACINGS top

    Note: The following list of subjects is a selective index to many of the topics and individuals in the ABRAHAM JEHIEL FELDMAN PAPERS. It is selective in that it only attempts to draw attention to the more significant items in the collection. It does not attempt to list every subject or individual nor does it try to indicate all places that a listed subject or individual appears in the collection. When used in conjunction with the box and Folder List, the Subject Tracings should help the researcher locate topics. References are to boxes and folders: e.g., 3/20 means Box 3 Folder 20.
