"There the American Matthay Association was formed, and a Provisional Board chosen to act till the first annual session in New York next December, where the full organization will take place in a three-day program filled with social activity, business, recitals, conferences, and lectures.
"The Board plans to have a two-day meeting in Boston at Thanksgiving time to perfect plans. The Chairman is Richard McClanahan of New York, other members are Bruce Simonds of Yale, Miss [Gertrude] Leonard of New York [later Mrs. Richard McClanahan], and [Frederick] Tillotson. For the present at least, I have the job of Secretary-Treas., so the next few months will be 'full up.'
