New York NAWCC Chapter 2 Collection

Identifier: MG-441
This collection contains material related to NAWCC Chapter located in New York City (Chapter 2). This includes correspondence, meeting notes, clippings, and other ephemera related to this chapter, as well as the chapter constitution. Additionally, this collection notably contains several hundred photographs of various meetings held by the chapter during the 1960s (and possibly early 1970s as well). These meetings were held in various locations around New York City, and highlights of the photographs include dinner, mingling, and the mart, as well as some speakers. A large number of these photographs had no identifying information on them, and thus it is unclear if these photographs are from other meetings held by this chapter that aren't already listed in the folder listing, or if these photographs were also from these same meetings listed.


  • 1950 - 2000
  • Majority of material found within 1960 - 1980
