Nebraska; South Dakota:   Professional organization

Size:  2 volumes


This organization had its origin in a May 23, 1953, meeting of five Nebraska chapters of the National Secretaries Association (NSA). By 1955, in conjunction with several South Dakota chapters of NSA, an organization known as the Nebraska-South Dakota Division of the National Secretaries Association (International) had evolved. The stated goals of this entity were to 1) serve as a clearinghouse for information between the NSA and its local chapters within the division, 2) unite the efforts of the local chapters toward greater progress, and 3) enforce local chapter compliance with the NSA by-laws as well as standards and objectives. All chapters of the National Secretaries Association (International) located within the boundaries of Nebraska and South Dakota constituted the membership. Within ten years the division grew to nine chapters and over 300 members total.


This collection consists of two volumes of material relating to the history and activities of the Professional Secretaries International, Nebraska-South Dakota Division. Volume 1 covers the years 1953-1973 and contains a variety of material such as news clippings, annual meeting minutes, by-laws, photos and printed matter. Volume 2 consists of similar material for the period 1973-1984.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
