History

A short history of our association can be found here: DC PBK Short HistoryThe writing of this report is the result of research conducted by past presidents Christel McDonald and Paul Lubliner with the help of fellow member Korrin Bishop. Most of the research from 1913 through the 1950s is based on old documents that the Association stored at the Society headquarters in the early 1980s, which were later passed on with the Society’s own documents to be archived at the Library of Congress. Information from the last 30 years is from notes and materials that members of the association still have in their possession. Online research and recollections from some of our members also helped inform this history.
