Papers

Association Archivist Ruth Johnson collected most of these papers during the 1990s from association officers and members. She brought them in batches to Rod Library Special Collections and arranged them there. Most material is aranged chronogically within categories. But it seemed wise to keep certain material, such as president's books, intact.

The collection is strong in records relating to association publications and public programming. Material relating to girls' and women's athletic associations is also noteworthy.
