New Source of Digitized Conference Proceedings

There’s a new source of digitized proceedings of the early conferences of the North Carolina State Firemen’s Association.

The Internet Archive ( has digitized a portion of the proceedings in the North Carolina Collection at the University of North Carolina. The direct links are listed below, and each year’s proceedings is fully-searchable. There are also a range of download formats.



  • 1929 to 1934 – 42nd to 47th
  • 1956 and 1957 – 69th and 70th

The proceedings are available at Search on “firemen’s convention” [with apostrophe].

Legeros has also created digital versions of the 1896 to 1903 proceedings, using a book scanning camera at Wilson Library at UNC. They’re a little rougher.

He’s combined the Internet Archive versions with his versions, and merged everything together. Those and other digital NCSFA (and NCVFA) proceedings are available at
