3.9 Linear feet
Boxes 54-58

Officers' Files includes collated records of the League Executive Secretary and Secretary, as well as correspondence of the League President and Treasurer. Materials found here are not comprehensive; similar materials can be found throughout the collection.
The series is arranged as 3 subseries:
  • 3.1: Secretaries' Files, 1900, 1935-1967
  • 3.2: Presidents' Correspondence, 1926-1970
  • 3.3: Treasurers' Correspondence, 1923-1970
3.1: Secretaries' Files, 1900, 1935-1967
The Secretaries' files include a mix of the elected League Secretary's files and the files of the Executive Secretary (presumably a paid and unelected position). The majority of the Executive Secretaries' files belong to long-time secretary, Lucile A. Pedrick. Materials are primarily correspondence, as well as meeting minutes, notes, memos, and other scattered administrative records. Additional Executive Secretary files are found throughout the collection typically labeled as "Secretary [Year Range]."
Folders are arranged alphabetically by folder title.
