Series 1: Organizational Files, Subseries 4: Finances (1933-1995) consists of correspondence, financial statements, spreadsheets, and reports. It documents the financial workings of the AAIA, including fund raising efforts, budgetary planning, allocation of funds, and auditing of accounts. This subseries includes official treasurer's reports as well as the annual and semi-annual reports of the Association's auditors Zeller Goldschmidt. Together, they offer a precise measure of the fluctuating fortunes of the AAIA, stretching from the 1930s, when general receipts and disbursements could total $3,244 and $4,415 respectively, to the 1990s, when general revenue and expenses could stand at $1,597,703 and $1,504,704 respectively. The essential role played by Zeller Goldschmidt in furnishing financial guidance to the Association is reflected in letters admonishing the AAIA for not improving its internal bookkeeping. Under the heading of "Budgets" can be found the financial outlines for the annual discussions of the AAIA's program and budget. Additional information on the budgetary process is contained in the files on these discussions in Series 1, Subseries 1 (Administration). Also contained in this subseries is material relating to the AAIA's exemption from various types of taxation and its understandable concern over changing tax laws and their effect on its non-profit status.
