6.1: League-Sponsored Functions and Events , 1909, 1931-1973

The Architectural League of New York sponsored numerous events for League members in their facilities. Found in this subseries is correspondence, lists, printed materials, receipts, and other materials related to organizing League events. The bulk of the material is from the 1950s-1960s. Generally, folder titles were transcribed from the original folder titles; however, event dates and additional descriptive information may have been added if the processing archivist was able to determine correct information from the folder materials. Similar materials are found in the Current Work subseries and Exhibitions series.
Folders are arranged chronologically by year and event date; events in which the exact date is unknown are filed at the beginning of the year in which the event was most likely held.
