Membership file contains membership application, announcement of Fellowship, request for emeritus (retired) status, chapter obituary. The photographs and drawings submitted with his membership application were returned to him at the time. The transcript from the Convention proceedings where his Fellowship was announced does not mention that he was there to accept it. Several of the new Fellows were unable to attend the Convention, and evidently he was one of those.
