Chapter History

ART LIBRARIES SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA
SOUTHEAST CHAPTER
A TALE OF TWO DECADES+
... a 25th Anniversary Timeline of Chapter Events from 1974-1999

Compiled by Stephen Allan Patrick, SE Chapter Historian/Archivist, from Chapter files and personal experience.

1974-75 (ARLIS/GEORGIA)

That first year included two preliminary meetings one in Athens GA in April and one in Atlanta on September 10, 1975. In June that year Ray Abell of the Tampa Public Library requested the formation of an ARLIS/Georgia-Florida Chapter. On December 6, 1975 in Atlanta, Leslie Friedman of the University of Georgia was elected Chair, Ray Abell of the Tampa Public Library was elected Vice-Chair, and Sarah Daniels of the Atlanta College of Art was elected Secretary and served as head of the Project Committee working on architectural records.

1975-76

The 2nd annual meeting was held in Sarasota FL on December 11, 1976. Ray Abell served as Chair, Mary Ellen "Mel" LoPresti of the Architecture Library at Georgia Tech was elected Vice-Chair, and Leslie Saunders of the Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library was elected Secretary-Treasurer.

1976-77

The 3rd annual meeting was held in Atlanta on December 8-10, 1977 as ARLIS/Southeast. Earlier that year Ray Abell left his position at Tampa Public Library and Mel LoPresti took over as Chair. That same year Mel also took a new position at the North Carolina State University Design Library. Mel continued to serve as Chair the following year and Leslie Saunders continued as Secretary-Treasurer. Marcia Duncan of UNC-Charlotte was elected Vice-Chair. The meeting consisted of a tour of the Omni Complex and the Fox Theatre. 1977 was also the first year that yours truly attended a Southeast Chapter meeting.

1977-78

Early in 1978 Leslie Saunders left her position at Tampa Public Library. Mel LoPresti phoned me to see if I (Stephen) was interested in taking over as Secretary-Treasurer for the Chapter; I agreed. At the ARLIS/NA Conference in New York in February Marcia Duncan was elected Eastern Regional Representative. The 4th annual meeting was held in Charlotte NC on November 10-11, 1978. Mel LoPresti presided and Marcia hosted the meeting which included a visit to Charlotte's newly formed arts center, Spirit Square. Elsie Straight of the Ringling School of Art Library was elected Vice-Chair. To improve the chapter image Stephen designed a chapter logo which was used on all official correspondence.

1978-79

The 5th annual meeting was hosted by Elsie in Sarasota FL on November 9-10, 1979. That was the year Marcia developed car trouble on the way to the meeting and was stranded near her family's home in Ocala. The meeting included tours of the Ringling Museum of Art, and the Ringling School of Art. Stephen Patrick of the Greenville County (SC) Library was elected Vice-Chair and Jill Leech of UNC-Charlotte was elected Secretary-Treasurer.

1979-80

In January 1980 the Southeast Chapter was host to the ARLIS/NA national conference in New Orleans. Marcia Duncan and Darla Rushing did most of the planning and organization for the conference. The 6th annual chapter meeting was hosted by Stephen in Greenville, South Carolina, on November 7-9, 1980. The program consisted of tours of the Greenville Museum of Art and their newly acquired Andrew Wyeth Collection and the Bob Jones University Art Museum. An added treat was a trip to Asheville to visit Biltmore House. 1980 was also memorable for the lengthy business following our first chapter catered dinner at the home of Alice White and Priscilla Adair. The historic home on Pettigrew Street is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Darla Rushing of Loyola University was elected Vice-Chair.

1980-81

Our 7th annual meeting was hosted by Darla in New Orleans on November 6-7, 1981. The meeting included our first real program sessions, instead of all tours. As side attractions we toured the New Orleans Museum of Art, the French Quarter, and the Garden District. Our treat consisted of a homemade jambalya dinner at the apartment of Jeanette Dixon Downing's parents in the Pontalba overlooking historic Jackson Square. Of course, there was a lot of good food at the meeting. Margaret Knoerr of Duke University was elected Vice-Chair and Julie Compton of the Atlanta Public Library was elected Secretary-Treasurer.

1981-82

Our 8th annual chapter meeting was hosted by Margaret and was held jointly with the ARLIS/DC-Maryland-Virginia Chapter at the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill NC from November 5-7, 1982. Caroline Backland, ARLIS/NA Chair, and Janis Ekdahl, Eastern Regional Representative, was in attendance. The meeting included several sessions at the UNC-Chapel Hill Ackland Art Museum, the National Humanities Center in Research Triangle Park and other sites. This was our largest meeting with 36 attendees. Jill Leech Sloop was elected Vice-Chair.

1982-83

Following the 1982 meeting Julie resigned and Louise Creed of Western Carolina University in Cullowhee was appointed Secretary-Treasurer. Our 9th annual meeting with the theme "Library Support of the Arts" was held in Charlotte on November 4-6, 1983 and was hosted by Jill. The meeting consisted of a panel discussion held at UNCC and other locations. Our special treat was dinner hosted by Marcia Duncan where everyone raved about her special dip, called Duncan's Delight. Leslie Abrams of the College of Charleston was elected Vice-Chair.

1983-84

Our 10th annual meeting was hosted by Leslie in Charleston SC (although she had moved to the Architecture Library at Clemson University) on November 2-4, 1984 with the theme "Restoration and Preservation in Charleston, SC: a Living, Historic City in the 20th Century." Meeting sessions were held at the Frances Marion Hotel, the Gibbs Art Museum, among other sites. Side features included a walking tour of homes in the historic district. Mary Ashe, ARLIS/NA Chair was in attendance. This meeting also contained our first Rizzoli Raffle which has now become an annual event. The membership also approved a southeast publications award. Yvonne Morse of the Ringling School of Art Library in Sarasota was elected Vice-Chair.

1984-85

While we were saddened by the death of Mary Ellen LoPresti, her death gave birth to the LoPresti Publication Awards for outstanding art publishing in the Southeast. The chair of the 1st LoPresti Awards was Luz Aveleyra of UNC- Charlotte. Our 11th annual meeting was hosted by Yvonne in Sarasota on November 1-3, 1985 under the theme of "Sarasota Potpourri: Artists and Museums." Meetings were held at the Ringling Museum of Art, and the Ringling School of Art. We were treated with dinner on floating restaurant. Sarasota saw our one commemorative t-shirt. Edward Teague of the University of Florida in Gainesville was elected Vice-Chair and Phyllis Pivorum of Clemson University was elected Secretary-Treasurer.

1985-86

Our 12th annual meeting was hosted by Ed in St. Augustine, Florida, on October 31 - November 2, 1986. Meetings were held at the 16th century Llambias House with tours of the San Agustin Historic Dictrict, Gonzalez-Alvarez House, Castillo de San Marcos National Monument (the fort), Flagler College (former Ponce de Leon Hotel), and the Lightner Museum. Eileen Markson, Eastern Regional Representative, was in attendance. Yvonne Morse was chair of the 2nd LoPresti Awards. Phil Rees of UNC-Chapel Hill was elected Vice-Chair.

1986-87

Phil hosted the 13th annual meeting in Chapel Hill on October 30 - November 1, 1987. Meetings were held at the UNC-CH Ackland Art Museum. The group toured the new UNC-CH art library facility, North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, and had a reception at home of Margaret Knoerr. A special treat was dinner at the home of Phil and Peg Rees. Terry Fraver of the Atlanta College of Art Library was chair of the 3rd LoPresti Awards. William Clayton of the University of Georgia was elected Vice-Chair.

1987-88

The 14th annual meeting was hosted by Bill in Atlanta GA on November 4-6, 1988. Meetings were held at the newly completed High Museum of Art by architect Richard Meier, the Atlanta College of Art and Georgia Tech Architectural Library. Jack Miller of the High Museum of Art was chair of the 4th LoPresti Awards. Floyd Zula of Tulane University was elected Vice-President.

1988-89

Floyd hosted the 15th annual meeting in New Orleans LA from November 3-5, 1989. This meeting also brought forth another milestone. The membership voted to donate $100 to the ARLIS/NA Research Fund, as well as, go international and extend our chapter boundaries to include Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Meeting was held at the the Historic New Orleans Collection (THNOC) with a reception in the Counting Room Courtyard following, and other tours in and around the historic French Quarter. Tours included the New Orleans Museum of Art, Julia Street, the Hermann-Grima House and the Gallier House. Sara Wolf of the Mint Museum of Art in Charlotte was chair of the 5th LoPresti Awards. Our own Ed Teague, Eastern Regional Representative, was in attendance. Sara Wolf was elected Vice-President and Emma Zell of the Art Institute of Atlanta was elected Secretary-Treasurer.

1989-90

We pulled out the stops and hosted one of the most memorable events of the organization's history. The sessions, the tours, the food, and the fun left a lasting memory on the minds of all who attended. However, a toll was taken on the chapter membership and one of the smallest group of members attended the 22nd annual chapter meeting in Augusta GA, hosted by LeAnne Brown on October 17-19, 1996. Members stayed at the historic Partridge Inn. We had a fabulous guided tour of Historic Augusta that began in a heavy fog that lifted somewhere along the way. This was followed by a delightful docent tour of the Morris Museum of Art. The real treat was a lecture by local author and editor, Starkey Flythe, Jr. LeAnne Brown did double duty as host and chapter chair, due to the resignation of Deborah Barlow and her move to the Corcoran School of Art Library in DC.

The glorious 24th annual chapter meeting was hosted by Linda McKee in Sarasota FL on October 15-18, 1998 with many members staying at the Radisson Lido Beach Resort. Another full schedule of events occupied the members on their two-day stay in the sun. Sessions and tours included the Ringling School of Art and Design, and Computer Animation Lab. A special tour of the new Selby Library (Sarasota Public Library) was a real treat. All day Saturday was spent at the Ringling Museum of Art with visits to its many venues. Kim Collins of the High Museum of Art was elected Vice-President; Ann Lindell of the University of Florida, Gainesville, took over the duties of Newsletter Editor.

Kim Collins presided over the meeting as a prelude to the 25th annual ARLIS/Southeast Chapter meeting. Pat Lynagh was introduced at the new ARLIS/NA South Regional Representative. A lively discussion on lifetime chapter membership was continued from the Sarasota meeting. Roberto Ferrari was asked by Collins to develop a website for the 25th chapter meeting. A membership drive was initiated to assist in the anniversary initiative. The group then adjourned to a fabulous restaurant several blocks away.

ARLIS/SE Records, 1985-2001

Corporate History Note:

ARLIS/SE was founded in 1974 as a chapter within the Southern Region of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA founded 1972, Chicago). Members primarily come from the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, and the American Virgin Islands. A Regional Representative is appointed by ARLIS/NA to the Southern Region / SE Chapter and serves a two-year term. This Representative serves as a liaison between the Chapter and the Executive Board.

      The Chapter is involved in several activities. It issues a Newsletter, now called ARTifacts, hosts an online discussion list and web site, and holds a Conference annually somewhere within the Southeast region. In addition, its members participate in the ARLIS/NA Annual Conference, including hosting the Annual Conference in the Southeast in 1996 (Miami Beach).  A major activity of the Chapter is its LoPresti Publication Award Competition, established in 1985 to recognize and encourage excellence in art publications issued in the Southeastern United States. This annual award is named for Mary Ellen LoPresti (d. 1985), who was the Design Librarian at North Carolina State University.
