Address by Walter N. Beekman ... Vice President, New York African Society for Mutual Relief Inc. in the Ingersoll Memorial Library Grand Army Plaza Brooklyn, New York February 13th, 1946 during Negro History Week Observation. [cover title].

[New York?]: n.d. (1946). Paperback. (16) unnumbered pages. Softcover in original wrapper. 21cm. Dark brown stripe along right edge of front cover. His address was a brief view of the history of the New York African Society for Mutual Relief since its formal organization in 1808 including brief mention of its involvement in the Underground Railroad and information by name and trades of several of its most illustrious members. The end date for this Society seems unclear -- some online information has 1945 as an end date but Beekman refers to it as an ongoing society in this 1946 address and organizational records seem to exist up to the late 1940s or possibly into the early 1950s. Near Fine. Item #90573
