Title Page305
Description MANAGERS OVER A HALF-CENTURY under Rasmussen's direction from a basic handful to 118 different accounts requiring two full-time people. At the time of his retirement, June 1, 1968, the Clipping Service was relaying from 8,000 to 10,000 clipped stories per month to its employers. Subsequently, the Clipping Service has been an ongoing subsidiary of the association and continues to attract a broad cross-section of clients who desire to know what the press is saying about them, their organization or their product. Bluntly stated, UPA has not had a totally happy history with its executives. There were those dismissed by disgruntled publishers who felt they weren't being well-represented. And in some cases, there were contentions by one or more members that dishonesty had taken place. Association historians deplore the act of Romeyn, who evidently destroyed records and minutes covering the 1930s and 1940s when he was dismissed after a lengthy controversy. Whether it was deliberate or inadvertent was never determined, but UPA's officers found similar records missing after the departure of two subsequent managers. Because the association consists of rather independent types, as evidenced by the diversity of their publications, it's not surprising that almost all managers have been criticized by individuals or groups during their tenure. More often than not the grievance related to advertising ~ a schedule placed in one paper but not in another, or failure to sell specific accounts a publisher felt should be in his or her paper. But not all complaints deal with advertising, as almost all ex-managers will testify, and the length of their tenure in the position directly ROD RASMUSSEN - he built the UPA clipping service. 305
