  • Scope and Contents

    The records of the American Association of University Women Hershey Branch document the activities of the organization. The records span the years 1972 to 1995. The records contain magazines, minutes, newsletters, newspaper clippings, promotional materials, and publications. The collection is largely comprised of the newsletter printed by the Hershey branch of the AAUW. This newsletter was officially named “Horizons” in 1978. The newsletters informed members about upcoming projects and membership requirements throughout the year. The minutes record the organization’s budget reports, committee reports, and activity of special study groups. One subject file contains brochures, reports, and itinerary data from the AAUW’s 35th Biennial Convention held in 1989. The second subject file includes materials related to UNESCO’s activities with regard to the advancement of women.
