Contents:  Correspondence, photographs, minutes, brochures, printed ephemera, corporate seal, posters, catalogs, announcements, magazines and journals, bylaws, membership lists, reports, applications, calendars, and phonograph recordings.


Arrangement:  Arranged alphabetically by the name of the organization.  Educational institutions, museums and libraries are organized separately at the end of the series.




Ben Lieberman was not only active in many print-related organizations; he was the founder of several.  He founded both the American Printing History Association and the Goudy Society.  Lieberman's files reflect the beginnings of both of these organizations, including minutes for first gatherings and photographs of the incorporation signing for the Goudy Society.

Ben Lieberman served as a board member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts; consequently his files include board minutes, correspondence, as well as AIGA publications.  Lieberman was also an active member of the Typophiles, the Private Libraries Association, the Amalgamated Printers Association, the William Morris Society, the Graphic Arts Education Association, and the Type Directors Club.  The files related to these groups include some correspondence but predominantly printed information and ephemera.

This series concludes with files of printed material and an occasional piece of correspondence related to educational institutions, libraries, and museums with which Lieberman had some connection.
