SCOPE AND CONTENTS OF THE COLLECTION

From the Collection: Published annual directories and reports of the body that coordinated or oversaw YMCA work for North America, and later the United States. While the content varies significantly, they consistently include lists of YMCAs existing during that year and employed staff members, as well as those serving in leadership positions at regional and national levels. Most also include statistical charts with such data as number and type of members, types of programs and numbers of participants, although other information varies greatly over the years. Volumes from the earliest years are in the form of proceedings of the annual convention, consisting primarily of reports from the various delegates about the progress of YMCA work across the continent. In later years, the publications, then called "year books," included reports from the various programs and departments. Beginning in the early 1980s, much of the narrative content was eliminated and the volumes include only officer and staff directories and statistical data. After 2002, some of the data is available only in digital form.
