Scope and Content Note
The records of the Engineers and Architects Club of Louisville include meeting and club records from the mid-20th century through the early 21st. The majority of the collection dates from the late 1970s through the early 1990s. 21st century materials deal mainly with correspondence and money transfer relating to a University of Louisville Engineering Scholarship created by the Engineers and Architects Club of Louisville. The records are of the following nature: membership records; member lists; financial records; meeting minutes and notes; correspondence; club by-laws; membership forms and applications; club history documents; and miscellaneous club forms and documents (logo and pin designs, letterhead, and membership cards).
The collection arrived well-organized and the arrangement has been relatively unaltered. One binder (Volume 3) of Club minutes and notes has been maintained as such, another binder was in too poor of condition but its contents remain in order and are separated into folders (2, 4-9). The aforementioned is arranged in reverse chronology within the folders and binders. Many financial documents (investment statements, returned checks, and monthly account summaries) have been discarded, as the yearly minutes, treasury reports, and financial reports included within the collection adequately detail this information. Samples of financial documents have been maintained.
The Engineers and Architects Club of Louisville was founded in 1891 as an organization to unite professional engineers and architects within the city. The club held monthly meetings, invited guest speakers to lecture on relevant topics, took educational group fieldtrips, and encouraged a high level of professionalism among its members. In order to provide its members with a quality service, the Club formed professional associations with numerous other scientific societies and organizations, including the University of Louisville’s Speed Scientific School, the Louisville Engineering and Scientific Societies’ Council, the Kentucky State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers, and various state scientific societies.
