Part 1 (Mss 293): Original Collection, 1871-1885, 1900-1969
Physical Description: 17.0 c.f. (45 archives boxes) 
Scope and Content Note

The Original Collection presents all the materials received in the Archives through 1973. It consists of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) files of correspondence, in addition to ten other series relating to annual meetings, the executive committee, other standing and ad hoc committees, seminars, financial records, surveys, legislation, affiliations, relations with colleges and miscellany.

The CORRESPONDENCE files, 1884, 1917, 1937-1968, are arranged chronologically. They contain letters exchanged by the AACP with a variety of affiliated organizations and businesses, as well as internal correspondence among the AACP officers, deans of colleges, and professors.

The ANNUAL MEETING series, 1871-1885, 1900-1968, consists of agenda, minutes, programs, lists of delegates, and delegate credentials from the annual meetings of the AACP. Included in this series are the minutes and delegate credentials of the Conference of Schools of Pharmacy, and the American Conference of Pharmaceutical Faculties. Both of these latter organizations were predecessors of the AACP. Arrangement of this material is by date, but there are significant gaps in the chronology. Filed in the Conference of Teachers section of this series are agenda, minutes, and programs of Conference of Teachers meetings for several years between 1925 and 1964. However, material relating to meetings of the Conference of Teachers, 1926-1929, 1932, 1938, and 1940, is filed under those dates in the general chronological file of the Annual Meeting series. Agenda and minutes of meetings of district affiliates of AACP are found under the heading District Meetings #1-8. The districts are listed in numerical order and the agenda and minutes for individual meetings are filed chronologically for each district.

The EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE segment consists of agenda and minutes of meetings of the executive committee from 1944 to 1968. The file is chronological with gaps.

The COMMITTEES series has been subdivided into two parts: meetings and activities. The Meetings segment, 1939-1941, 1953-1956, 1965-1968 with some gaps, consists of minutes of a variety of committees including the Task Force on Annual Meetings, and Committees on Pharmacy College Libraries, on Recruitment, and on Syllabi. The material is arranged alphabetically under the name of the committee. Found in the Activities section under Committees, 1938-1969 with numerous gaps, are the proposals and projects of a number of committees, e.g.: the Committee on Accreditation of Graduate Programs, the Committee on Audio-Visual Education, and Committees on the Constitution and By-laws, Pharmaceutical Survey, and Revision of Application Forms. These records are filed in alphabetical order by name of committee.

SEMINARS is a chronological series dating from 1949 through 1962. It consists of agenda, programs, and reports from the annual seminars.

The FINANCIAL RECORDS, 1903-1968 with gaps, consist of statements, receipts and disbursements. They are filed chronologically.

The SURVEYS series consists of questionnaires and the data compiled from them. These materials are arranged under four categories: Enrollment, Degrees Conferred, Geographical Distribution, and Assorted. AACP by-laws require member colleges of pharmacy to submit information on enrollment and degrees conferred annually. Enrollment surveys date from 1943 to 1962; the Degrees Conferred surveys are dated 1943 to 1965. The surveys on Geographical Distribution, 1960-1963, show the distribution and migration of professional students of pharmacy in the United States and Canada for the three year period indicated. The Assorted surveys, 1938-1957 with significant gaps, consist of a variety of questionnaire forms and data filed alphabetically by key word in the survey title. They concern scholarships, AACP membership, enlistment in the U.S. Air Force, financial assistance to graduate students, salaries, Selective Service Boards, student draft status, syllabi, undergraduate instruction, and the War Advisory Committee representing the AACP in 1943.

The LEGISLATION section of the collection, 1943-1956 with gaps, consists of federal and state of Connecticut legislation which pertains to pharmacy or pharmaceutical education. The file is chronological.

The AFFILIATIONS file, 1943-1963, is an alphabetical arrangement of a variety of material of and on organizations which have come in contact with the AACP. The section titled RELATIONS WITH COLLEGES, 1941-1951, consists of items relating to numerous colleges on a variety of subjects such as accreditation. The file is alphabetical by name of college. In both the Affiliations and the Relations With Colleges series, there are many major gaps in the chronology.

MISCELLANY, 1906, 1943-1963, contains reports on post-war educational opportunities, the creation of a college of pharmacy at the University of Nebraska, a training program for graduate students, and a visiting scientists program; speeches; and miscellaneous lists and notes. The file is arranged alphabetically.
