The State Convention was held in New Bern in 1912. Below are pictures of most of  the convention program pages plus the local newspaper articles . Special thanks to the late Franks Olgesby who allowed me to scan the program.  Some of the pictures with a lot of text may be hard to read. Sorry about that but I need to keep the files relatively small. I do have the original hi definition scan if anyone is seriously interested. Just e-mail
