Abstract

The Holland branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) was organized in September 1938 by twenty-three women who elected Mrs. James Warner as president. Membership consists of women holding degrees from approved universities and colleges. By 1949, membership had grown to seventy, partly due to Hope College alumnae being approved for AAUW membership. The organization has been involved in many local activities, including providing scholarships for college students, holding an annual book sale for the public, and promoting the RIF (Reading Is Fundamental) program in area elementary schools. Collection includes minutes, newsletters, yearbooks, treasurer’s reports, RIF records, pamphlets, and scrapbooks with newspaper clippings and photographs from 1938-2000. Detailed Collection Register available.
