BACKGROUND NOTE

The Lancaster County Activities Association was started in 1931. The purpose of this organization was to promote and sponsor Lancaster County high schools in athletics, declamation, histrionic art and music. Members of this organization were composed of Lancaster County public high schools with the exception of Lincoln high schools. Each participating school was represented by their superintendent or by a faculty member appointed by the superintendent. There was an annual meeting and the President was able to call special meetings at his discrepancy. This was a nonprofit organization and all extra funds were prorated to the participating school at the end of each academic school year.

The collection was originally organized by academic year and kept in individual notebooks. There are no records for 1947. This could possibly be due to a change in officers. Although there are records from 1948-1952, when the organization dissolved, they were less detailed from those in the beginning.
