  • Scope and Contents

    The majority of these files center around club constitutions and by-laws including revision and amendment correspondence, drafts, permanent file copies, and printed pamphlets. Other documents relate to issues such as new club successorship, conflict resolution, elections, annual meetings and more. Show license applications are usually accomplanied by membership lists, and various other club materials such as newsletters or legal forms appear. The files are far from comprehensive but may aid clubs trying to piece together their history.
