The American Assembly records, 1950-2008

Series II. Assembly meeting records, 1951-2006

The Assembly meeting records - national and regional conferences - are available as bound volumes. These "editorial and other papers" volumes contain information about the opening ceremonies, speeches, press statements, photographs, round table digests, final report and final printed documents. There are also the first booklets or brochures relating to Arden House and the American Assembly. The papers include editorial, public relations, advance preparation, and the actual conduct of the Assembly. They are not complete and they were originally compiled to give later officers of the American Assembly an idea of how the Assemblies were planned and administered. Volumes are organized by Assembly number and then chronologically. Background papers prepared for the Assemblies and the Final Reports can be found either as part of the volume or as a separate bound volume. For final reports and revisions, see Series III. Publications.
