Faculty Serving as RISP Officers

Rhode Island Society of Pathologists 

The RISP was probably founded in 1926, served by one lone officer (the secretary-treasurer) every year prior to 1973.  The Society’s Bylaws were first adopted in May 1950 and most recently amended in April of 1984.  Unlike the more recent tradition, some officers might serve several non-consecutive terms during the early years.  Membership dues was $3.00 in the 1950s and $10.00 in 1965 and thereafter.  The current by-laws were adopted in May of 1950 and were last amended in April of 1984 in which membership annual dues were increased to $30.00.  In 1988, Dr. James W. Cole bound and donated 23 volumes of manuscripts and archives pertaining to the Society to the Brown University Library.  The records, 3 and ½ linear feet in all, are housed in the John Hay Library at Brown University (Call No. Ms. 90.27 Codes 1-23).  The archives include 3 bound volumes of letters, minutes, financial documents, research papers, bibliographies, membership lists and applications with curricula vitae.  The annual dues were increased to $40.00 and $50.00 in 1995 and 2010 respectively to cover expenses of pathology trainees attending our regular meetings and inflation.  The Society was incorporated in the State of Rhode Island and our corporate ID number is 05-6015939.
