American Association of University Women-Wheaton/Glen Ellyn, 1957-2011
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: The American Association of University Woman, Wheaton-Glen Ellyn Branch records date from 1957 to 2011, although the bulk of the material dates from 1980-2000.  The organization provided a very detailed chronological inventory at the time of donation that influenced how the records are organized. Materials were created and organized by the different officers of the Branch and the way in which the records are arranged reflect the original order they were created. Each officer’s duties is distinct, but projects and areas of focus often overlap. The collection is divided into eight series: Treasurer, Branch Programs, Membership, Historian, President, Scrapbooks, Branch 25th Anniversary, and Audio-Visual.

The third series consists of Membership files from 2008-2010, with directory lists, board meeting minutes, and dues records.
