In 1990, Michele Raphoon assumed the dual title of Membership Coordinator and Special Events Coordinator, and the next year she became Membership and Special Events Manager. The office was reconfigured in 1993, and the membership and special events functions were separated. By FY 1994, Pamela Haylock had become Special Events Coordinator.
These records primarily document special events held at the Museum from 1991 through 1993. Event files include lists of participants, invitation samples and mailing lists, contracts with talent and caterers, publicity, and press clippings. Materials also include some membership records and files from the Museum's benefit auctions from 1974 through 1979. Some materials are in electronic format.
