I am a reseacher who is working on a history of the early years of the USWV and its predecessors. I am especially interested in the changes in the membership badges and officer badges. I am familiar with George Kane's excellent study, those of OMSA members Barry Weaver and Harvey Eisenberg. I am asking fourm members if they have, and are willing to share copies of any USWV National Encampment proceedings between 1904 and 1924. I have copies of the Constitution Rules and Regulations for 1904, 1907, and 1910, as well as later, but not the proceedings. I am also looking for copies of the Rules and Regulations and proceedings of national encampments for the USWV predecessor organization Spanish War Veterans (SWV). If any of you have them and are willing to make photocopies or pdf's I am happy to compensate you for time and shipping. If any are available for purchase, please let me know.
I have searched Federal, State, and Local archival holdings via the internet, and the SWV material is hard to find.
I will be grateful for any assistance.
