The scrapbook titled "Philip Anderson Shaffer, September 20, 1956" commemorates a ceremony honoring Shaffer's 75th birthday and the creation of a fund for a lectureship in his honor, from which the oil portrait in the Shaffer Conference Room was commissioned. Photos, news releases, clippings, and a poster make up the first section. The scrapbook also contains letters and telegrams from initial contributors to the Shaffer lectureship and tributes to PAS sent to Alexis F. Hartmann, who evidently coordinated this feature of the celebration. The contents of each page of the scrapbook were placed in individual folders due to the deteriorating condition of the scrapbook (Box 18) and the original cover was retained (Box 20). However, the original pages were scanned to create a bound color facsimile of the original scrapbook (Box 17). Gift of Jane Shaffer Prince (Accession 1995-028).
