Arthur C. Johnson, Sr., Presiding

The Business Session of the Fifty-third Annual Meeting of

the Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society was called

Arthur C. Johnson, Sr., at 10:00 A. M. on April 7, 1939.

If there are any corrections or changes in these minutes you will

please make your wishes heard. If not, a motion to approve

them is in order.

Howard R. Goodwin moved that the minutes of the last

Annual Meeting be approved. The motion was seconded by

Albert C. Spetnagel and carried.

Society. I will ask Professor A. T. Volwiler, of Ohio University,
