Massachusetts Undertakers' Association By-Laws.

Hyde Park Massachusetts Undertakers' Association: 1892.

The MUA was instituted on November 23, 1891, in an effort to provide a unified front for the profession, in the aftermath of a fight between Massachusetts undertakers and the Massachusetts Medical Society, which had attempted to pass a law that would have prohibited the embalming of a body without a doctor's certificate. This small booklet contains the MUA's Bylaws and Code of Ethics. It is accompanied by a folder dated January 15, 1892, promoting the Association to Massachusetts undertakers who have not joined.

Softcover. 3.25"x5.25", 13 pages, light wear. With- paper folder, a single sheet folded to 5.5"x8.5" size. Light soil along edge, folded twice horizontally.
