AKD 100.3 Club Yearbooks, Annuals, and Pictorials, 1884 - present, 1884 - present

 Record Group

Scope and Contents

Club Yearbooks include annual publications created by clubs that compile pertinent club activities from the year, a club membership list, officers, committees, breeders, and may include meeting minutes from the year, financial reports of the club, National Specialty results, lists of top winners, and historic club information. Some clubs produce yearbooks every year, while others create commemorative books for milestone club anniversaries or periodically. Yearbooks are an important resource for club and breed history.

In addition to club yearbooks, other annual club publications or club history compilations may be included in this collection or in AKD 100.6 Studbooks, Pedigrees, Registries, and Statistical Compilations. Generally this collection holds professionally produced and distributed publications.
