Another large portion of the records consists of stenographic reports of the proceedings of Conference meetings and sessions, 1939-1968. Also included are by-laws, memoranda, andcorrespondence documenting the Conference's creation, 1940-1941; questionnaire responses from Conference members, 1942-1943; financial records of the Conference, 1940-1957; and the permanent administrative files of the Conference, 1940-1977.
