The Auto License Plate Collectors Association (ALPCA) was founded in 1954. The first 100 members were deemed to be original charter members (member numbers 1-100). It took until June 1955 for that to happen. As far as is known, all but two of the charter members are now deceased. There are a handful we are ot sure of.
