General Secretaries, 1946-1974 [subseries]:
This series begins with material from Earl Atkinson (1923-1946) and Frank Philipps
(1946). It also includes material from a time of secretarial transition (1968-1974).
When Secretary Frank R. Bliss died suddenly in 1970, several secretaries held the post
in quick succession, including Clarence W. Mitchell, William H. Allen, Jr., and Robert
"Bob" Head. Unlike other secretarial files, which are arranged according to secretary,
the organizer of these files sorted them by years and topics, combining material from
Bliss and the secretaries who followed him within each file. Finally, the series also
includes one box of files (1944-1967) organized alphabetically rather than by subject.
For instance, a file labeled "T" could contain material from the club treasurer,
correspondents whose name begins with T, etc. This material is largely from Ollie
Jones' tenure, but also includes some material from Frank Philipps' time as
