Biographical/Historical note

The American Association of University Women is an organization whose membership is composed of women with baccalaureate degrees who are committed to continuing their education informally through study groups and to providing scholarships for women who desire to obtain advanced degrees. Originally organized in 1882 as the Association of Collegiate Alumnae, the group took its present name in 1921. Structurally, the organization exists on five levels: local branch, state division, regional division, national and international federation.
