Scope and Content

One CD made from tape.  The original tape is unplayable on Archives equipment and the original tape was unidentified by the individual doing the digitization, so the original is in the Archives, but was identified as "Mystery Tape, Track 1." A digital wave sound file was then created from this magnetic reel-to-reel tape and a copy is located on Archives Network [W] in folder titled [Advancement_Marketing].
