The LCA Archives

Preserving the History of the LCA: The Legislative Correspondents Association, a bulwark for the 1st Amendment, traces its roots to the Albany Press Club formed in the 1880s -- the group also spawned Wolfert's Roost, its original clubhouse. Many written records, artifacts and photographs have been preserved over the years and are now part of the special collections of the SUNY Albany library. Nothing is online but the archives are open to researchers and the merely curious. Here is an index: The LCA Archives

The 1944 LCA dinner and show

72 years ago, the 1944 LCA dinner was held in downtown Albany, in a long gone hotel at State and Pearl. There's a Starbucks on the site today. From left, Tom Dewey, Al Smith, Jim Farley. Two presidential nominees, one a Republican the other a Democrat, and the Irish Catholic pol most responsible for electing FDR.
