MIDWEST ANTIQUARIAN ASSOCIATION
In May 1940, the Association was renamed the NATIONAL ANTIQUARIAN ASSOCIATION to help portray its national views. By October membership chairperson Anna M. Baxter had convinced fifty-four women and twenty-four men to become members of an advisory board. Members, including Governor Alfred E. Smith of New York, came from the District of Columbia and thirty-nine states. Staff of the museum organized a lecture bureau and prepared "visual programs" that could be sent out on loan to member groups.
