Notes:
Organized in 1919,the Auxiliary was initially involved in scholarships for the children of members of the National Association of Master Plumbers (the former name of the organization), raising the profile of the plumbing profession, seeking ways to help their husbands' businesses, and advocating for better public sanitation. Over time their activities expanded, advocating and lobbying for better public sanitation, promoting educational efforts about the transmission of water-borne diseases. They were active on such issues as water pollution, labor practices (such as the Family Medical Leave Act), civil rights, pipeline safety, fuel economy standards, conservation and recycling. They continued to fund scholarships for the education of the children of members, and they had a loan program for members in need. The mission of the Auxiliary today is to work in partnership with the National Association and the industry through cooperation, communication and education. Its goals include: promoting the industry to the public; drawing more young people into the industry through educational programs, and protecting the nation's health through advocacy and grass roots efforts to improve public sanitation and the water supply.
Summary:
Primarily organizational records of the Auxiliary, including meticulously detailed financial records, various iterations of the by-laws, charter books for state chapters and for committees, and ledger books detailing all expenditures and moneys taken in. The proceedings cover the years 1934-2011 and detail receipts and expenditures, as well as the activities of the Auxiliary. Printed materials such as newsletters, informational brochures about careers in the field, and convention programs are also included. There are also 27 volumes of scrapbooks and photograph albums.
