Michigan Park Citizens Association Collection, 1949-1979

Finding Aid

Collection No. 54
D.C. Community Archives

Provenance

Meeting minutes and correspondence of the association were originally part of the Washingtoniana’s vertical files, files maintained for ease of reference on topics related to D.C. history and current events. The vertical files primarily contain clippings but also include other rare items. To ensure the physical preservation of the original minutes and correspondence of the Association, they were removed in 1999 to create this collection.

Processing Notes

To enhance preservation, materials were removed the original scrapbook and placed in an acid-free file folder in their original order.

Scope and Content Note

Consists of meeting minutes (1949-1965) and correspondence of the association. It also contains a scrapbook of photographs, letters, and other memorabilia about the Michigan Park Garden Club (1951-1973).
