Biographical or historical data
An organizational meeting was held March 27, 1943, to discuss the benefits of such an organization and how to proceed. Hazel Hopper served as the first chairman, Margaret Harpe as the first secretary. Esther Agnew was elected as the first chairman, Martha Swindler elected as the first secretary. Meetings consisted of staff association business, including setting up a Flower and Gift Fund, and State Library business, some of which was related to the war effort. The Staff Association was involved with advising the administration on working conditions for staff, in its early days. The Staff Association effectively ended operations in 2007, due to decreased interest and participation of staff members. Edythe Huffman was the last and only officer to serve through 2007, as treasurer.The Staff Association's purpose was to advance the interests and goals of the Indiana State Library, Indiana Historical Bureau, the Indiana Historical Society and the Indiana Commission on Public Records. Sponsored activities were either social or educational. The first meeting, held each September, was usually a trash-to-treasure auction. Other activities included picnics, hay rides, lectures, tours, holiday dinners, and Christmas caroling, either in the Great Hall (which has wonderful acoustics), located on the 2nd floor at the Senate Avenue entrance or in the new front entrance, at Ohio Street.Information from within the collection and supplied by Edythe Huffman
