ARMS OF PENNSYLVANIA. 



Purpose of the Society 



The Pennsylvania Society was organized April 25, 1899, and 
was incorporated February 18, 1903. Its membership, January i, 
1904, was 658, of which 450 were resident members and 188 non- 
resident. Its specific object, as stated in its constitution, is to "culti- 
vate social intercourse among its members, and to promote their 
best interests; to collect historical material relating to the State of 
Pennsylvania, and to keep alive its memory." 

Its scope thus falls naturally into two divisions. Its social side 
is maintained by the Annual Dinner and meetings held for social 
purposes. Its historical aim is expressed not only in the intent to 
collect historical material, but more especially by its purpose to keep 
alive the memory of Pennsylvania. Even if the Society did no 
more than recall to its members the State from which they came, 
its great past, its wonderful present, the possibilities of its future, it 
would accomplish a good and useful purpose that would more than 
justify its existence. 

The early history of Pennsylvania, its wise and great founder, 
the active part its people took in the War for Independence, and 



THE PENNSYLVANIA SOCIETY 7 

the subsequent history of the Commonwealth, are among the most 
precious possessions of the American nation. It is the good name 
of the State of Pennsylvania, its good deeds and its good men, that 
the Pennsylvania Society is concerned with. To preserve the good 
name and the fair fame of the State, and to aid in promoting those 
causes and methods which tend to that end, is the real work of the 
Society, and it invites every son of Pennsylvania who values these 
things, to join with it in the fulfilment of this purpose. 



Terms of Membership 

The active membership may include any person who is a native 
or the descendant of a native of the State of Pennsylvania, or who 
has been a resident of the State for a continuous period of seven 
years. 

The non-resident membership may include any person residing 
in Pennsylvania or born therein, or who has been a resident thereof 
for seven consecutive years, and resides more than fifty miles from 
the City of New York. 

The annual dues for active members are $5.00 per year and for 
non-resident $2.00. The entrance fee for either is $5.00. 

Proposals for membership must be made by a member of the 
Society and duly seconded by another member, and should be sent 
to the Secretary, Mr. Barr Ferree, 7 Warren Street.

The Library 



The Library of the Society has been placed in Room Number 
401 at 7 Warren St., and is accessible to members who may de- 
sire to consult it. The collection now numbers about 3,000 books 
and pamphlets relating to Pennsylvania. It has been formed partly 
by gift and partly from a small annual appropriation by the Council, 
which has enabled the Committee to purchase new and contem- 
porary books as published. While the Library as yet contains few 
of the older books relating to Pennsylvania, it embraces nearly all 
the more important books relating to Pennsylvania published during 
the past three years. 

The Committee bespeaks the active co-operation and support 
of the entire membership of the Society in furthering the growth 
of the Library and in adding to its collections. Gifts of books, 
papers and pamphlets relating to the State of Pennsylvania, its in- 
stitutions, its industries, its interests, or its history are earnestly 
solicited. With very small effort and very limited expenditure the 
Library has become a valuable asset of the Society, and it is hoped 
that each member will take a personal interest in adding to it. 
Many books and pamphlets, to which little value is attached by 
their present owners, will have an enhanced value when placed in 
a special collection such as the Society is forming. 

A classification of the scope of the Library is appended.
