American Association of University Women Records
 
 
Collection 69
American Association of University Women. Records, 1924- ----, n.d.
8 ft., 3 in., 7 v.
 
The American Association of University Women started in 1881. The purpose of the Association is to unite the alumnae of different institutions of higher education to advance the economic, political, and educational opportunities for women. The AAUW began with small groups of interested women, then gradually the number of small branches grew until it seemed wise to organize the branches into state and regional divisions.

The Lafayette, Louisiana Branch was started in the mid 1920s.

This collection is divided into three groups: national, state, local. It contains organizational records, correspondence, bylaws, conference and convention material, minutes, reports and other miscellaneous materials.

This collection was donated by Laura C. Edwards. Subsequent donations have come from other AAUW members.

For other collections with AAUW material see Coll. 189, Mary E. Dichmann Papers and Coll. 198, Wes Cady Papers.
