Research Query: Minutes of the Pro-Jerusalem Society (1918-1926)

Dear Colleagues

As I am working on a publication discussing the urban planning of Jerusalem under Ronald Storrs (1918-1926) I am looking for the minutes of the Pro-Jerusalem Society. I was able to locate some of them at the Central Zionist Archives and the Jerusalem Municipal Archives. According to some old publication the minutes should be fully available, but none of them mentioned where. Any help would be very much appreciated.
