Subseries 2, Committees, 1952-1977, contains correspondence, memoranda and reports developed by various board committees. The executive committee was the only committee to meet somewhat regularly and was established to be in active control of the conduct of the business of the corporation when the board was not in session. The only other committee with extensive documentation is the nominating committee. Also included within this subseries are materials relating to the task force established in 1971 to study the purpose of Franklin's program and its finances.
