Scope and Content of Collection
The records of the College Park Maryland Branch of the AAUW span the years 1929 to 1990, with the bulk of the material dating from 1950 to 1979. The collection reflects the activities and interests of the branch and its relationship with the National AAUW, the Maryland State Division, and other area AAUW branches. Official branch documents including annual reports, bylaws, budgets, membership directories, minutes of branch and board of directors meetings, and treasurers reports comprise a substantial portion of the collection. Numerous branch, state, national, and international (IFUW) newsletters are also included. The educational Foundation Programs (EFP) fellowships and graduate prize awards are also extensively documented. Much material concerned with the arts (cultural interests), community affairs and county government, education, international relations, legislation, program development, various social and economic issues and the status of women is collected here as well. Branch history and social functions are also included.
