Provenance

On November 17, 1932 four volumes of the Connecticut Dental Association were deposited at the Connecticut State Library by Dr. C.E. Peterson of Rockville, Connecticut, who was Secretary-Treasurer of the Association. These four volumes included one volume of minutes of the meetings of the Board of Censors, 1921-1927 and three volumes of Proceedings of the 63rd, 64th, 65th, and 66th annual meetings.

In 1975, the Association's records and other material from the State Library's catalog collection were transferred to the State Archives.
