These inventory cards describe the movement and disposition of specific private or public art collections, with many of the cards having handwritten annotations. They are divided into five series and may duplicate other property cards. Their use was based on their arrangement, not their uniqueness. Instead of being arranged in numerical order, the cards in the five series were arranged alphabetically. They can be used as a reference for cards in other areas of the Ardelia Hall Collection.
