November 26, 1956


Notice is hereby given to Active, Annual and Life members that a Business Meeting of the College Art Association will be held in the Detroit Institute of Art, Detroit, Michigan, Friday, January 25th, 1957, at 4:30 p.m., for the purpose of considering and acting upon:

1. Reports of Officers
2. Reports of Regular and Special Committees
3. Ratification and Approval of all acts and proceedings of the Board of Directors taken since the last Annual Meeting
4. Election of Officers and the Board of Directors
5. New Business.

Slate of Candidates for the election of officers for 1957 proposed by the Board of Directors:

Joseph C. Sloane, President; Lamar Dodd, Vice-President; Craig Hugh Smyth, Secretary; John W. Straus, Treasurer.

At the request of the Board of Directors, the name of Lamar Dodd has been put in nomination. In the view of Professor Dodd's important role in the plans now under way concerning the Association's present activities and future possibilities, it was felt that he should be asked to continue in his present office of Vice-President.

The Board further felt that in the present state of affairs, its interests could best be served by having Professor Smyth continue as Secretary, and consequently he was reappointed to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Professor Meiss tendered at the Board of Directors meeting held October 27, 1956.

At the end of the year 1956, the following Directors will retire from the Board: Craig Hugh Smyth, Allen S. Weller, Lamar Dodd, Gibson Danes, William S.A. Dale.

The Slate of Candidates proposed by the Nominating Committee for the election of five new directors to serve until 1961 is:

Bartlett H. Hayes, Jr., Phillips Academy; Walter W. Horn, University of California, Berkeley; Vincent Scully, Yale University; David R. Coffin, Princeton University; Lamar Dodd, University of Georgia.

Pursuant to the By-Laws, the Board of Directors proposes the following candidates for the Committee to nominate Directors for the year 1958: - George B. Tatum, Chairman, University of Pennsylvania; Gregory D. Ivy, Women's College of North Carolina; Eleanor P. Spencer, Goucher College; Bates Lowry, University of California, Riverside; John R. Martin, Princeton University.

Twenty or more members entitled to vote may place candidates in nomination for new Directors or for the Nominating Committee, provided a statement containing the names of the proposed candidates over the signature of the twenty or more members is filed with the Secretary at least 30 days before the Annual Meeting. The Secretary within at least 20 days before the Meeting shall circulate the same among the membership entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. Other nominations for new Directors or for the Nominating Committee may be made from the floor at the Annual Meeting.
