Officers included Palmer Rutherford, president; Wingfield Roberts, manager; Donald Ward, assistant manager; Robert Velle, librarian; Wilson Brown, assistant librarian; and Charles Nichols, publicity manager; the accompanist was Peter Cressman, and assistant accompanists included Warren Coleman and Ben Fulton.
