Agency History
On June 3, 1921, the Association elected its first board of directors under the new Association charter. Together with the Executive Committee (See 232-3-1), the board became the governing body with respect to the Association as a whole. The board of directors met and organized under the presidency of Mayor Moore with John Wanamaker as honorary chairman, Alba Johnson as first vice-president, John H. Mason as treasurer, and Edward Robins as secretary pro tem. In succeeding months the directors appointed special committees, hired office staff, and discussed general planning strategies as well as more specific topics such as public commentary on the exposition and ways of promoting public involvement.
