They are arranged chronologically by year. The clubs scrapbooks tell the story through a collection of newspaper clippings, yearbooks, programs, correspondence, and convention notices. Over 70 photographs are included within the 9 volumes with 60 found within the 50th Golden Anniversary volume. Also included within the collection is a scrapbook dedicated primarily to the Beaumont Golden Deeds Award, with special emphasis on the 5th winner of the award, Dr. Lena Milan.
