Aurora League of Women Voters Records, 1947-1982
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: Meeting minutes, annual reports, correspondence, budgets, bulletins, and scrapbooks comprise a major portion of this collection documenting the Aurora League of Women Voters (1947-1982).  Although the minutes date only through May 1971, there are annual meeting proceedings for 1972 and 1973.  Committee records and subject files document some of the studies and research conducted by the League (local government, downtown redevelopment, housing, and public health).  The publications Know Your Town and Know Your County document government, education, planning and zoning, health, recreation, and the judicial systems of Aurora and Kane County.  Photographs, a tape on “Practical Politics”, the proceedings from the Illinois League’s 31st convention in 1963, and newspaper clippings complete the collection.
