Series IV. Officers, 1894-1978

Scope and Content Notes:

Series IV contains materials for the number of officers that have servied the Pittsburgh Section over the years. During its first year the Pittsburgh Section functioned with four officers, a President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary. By May of 1895, the job of Secretary was divided into two positions the Recording and Assistant Secretary. In later years other positions were added, including Auditor (1906), a second Vice-President (1908), and a Financial Secretary (1911). Third and fourth Vice-Presidents were added in 1913 and 1918, but it is unclear whether the positions were re-elected.

It is only from the mid 1920s, with the election of Mrs. Lillian Freund as President, that minutes, records and reports were maintained. Reports and minutes from annual meetings, sometimes called "President's Day" or "Volunteer Recognition Day," include the President's report. The President's report can be found in the President Files. Material on both are included in the files. The annual reports were published in the yearbooks, reports missing in this series may be found there.

A separate folder has been assigned to the correspondence and papers of each President even where no papers have yet been located. Folders are arranged chronologically by term of office.
