Scope and content

Newspaper clippings, conference programs, reports and memorabilia record the activities of the Dade County PTA and its members as well as school programs and local educational concerns. Books for 1930 and 1931, which celebrate the association's first decade, have considerable historical detail including individual school histories. The 1938-1939 book also has some loose material from the early 1940s. The 1944 and 1945 books are narrowest in scope, basically covering the state PTA convention, held respectively in Sarasota and Daytona Beach. The 1966-1968 book includes clippings on the 1968 teachers' walkout. Many of the books are dedicated to Mrs. Walter Beckham, who was PTA president for a number of years
