Series 1, Board of Directors, 1952-1978, contains four subseries: Minutes, Committees, Correspondence and Annual Reports. The board controlled the affairs and property of the corporation. Initially, the board membership was comprised of “sixty percent of individuals who had technical knowledge in the publishing field and its problems, and forty percent of individuals who had experience in the fields of education, literature or public affairs, and shall represent the public interest.” Membership in the Corporation, on the other hand, simply required a “desire to share in the effectuation of the informational, educational, cultural and other purposes of the corporation.”
